We are two Advanced Open Water Divers, the equipment, service and diving locations are awesome. "Muñeco" and all of his team made us feel at home, it's my 6th time coming and I still have much to discover underwater. The restaurant is the perfect complement to end the day, great food, music and view. If you seek for a beautiful... More

I just finished a three day open water PADI course. I was really impressed with the professional staff and great equipment. You start of Ruth watching the video, a bit booring after a while but you'll notice that it will come in handy the next day! First day we were a bigger group, some people where going on a day...

We took an open water dive course padi for three days. The owner felt reliable and he gave us a good offer at a good price. The other dive centers sounded good aswell since we spoke to everyone but taganga dive center felt more reliable and a bit less crowded. Good quality in small scale and not too big groups.... More

Taganga Dive Center is a relief in the busy world of present day diving. Working on a small-scale you get all the attention needed in a very professional and most friendly way. I've been diving the Caribbean and Asia and this center is hard to beat! You are provided with the best equipment and everything is perfectly organised and safety... More

As Aquantis diveschool Taganga (highly recommended in Lonely Planet) doesn't exist anymore, one of the two former owners started a new company with the name Taganga Divecenter.
