This place has a wonderful location it doesn't matter if you are into the diving stuff or just want to spend a weekend there. The staff makes their best effort to keep you confortable but with such a poor management the task is almost impossible....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.

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
