This aint a fancy hotel or anything like that. Its rather conceived to be the resting area for you to recover after the dives. The place offers a restaurant and the sleeping facilities are fit to different levels of comfort: you can have a collective...More

Alexai and Veruska are amazing - they are on top of communication and all your requirements. The dive spots in Portobelo didn't have great visibility. But I'd go diving with Scuba Panama again, albeit to a different spot.

Christian, our dive guide, was very knowledgeable and took us on two great dives. The water was very clear and flat for the early morning dive. There was plenty of fish - lobster, puffer fish, shrimp, parrot fish, clown fish, sea worms. Unfortunately, the weather...More

Great service but underwhelming diving experience. Dive operation and dive master did their best but weather conditions led to marginal diving. Recent rains caused visibility issues and unfavorable currents at dive sites.

I had not heard of Panama diving and now I think I know why. Signing up was easy and flexible but the admin people are not terribly helpful or knowledgable. The dive masters were adequate but uninterested in guiding. Mostly it seemed they were there...More
