It was first time dive for two 11 year olds, a 13 year old and an adult. Michele was hands down the most professional, passionate and friendly dive instructor I have ever been around. He put all of the first time divers (kids and adults) at ease. We took the boat on the last day of the trip before traveling... More

During my stay at la Escuela Del Sol in Cabuya in july 2016 I did my CMAS diving certification with Montezuma Crew. It was one of my highlights on my trip through Costa Rica. David and Michele are very nice and knowledgeable. I felt safe and comfortable the whole time. It was a great experience and it motivated me allot... More

We flew into Liberia, as it seemed most convenient to accessing the Nicoya Peninsula. We picked up our rental, a RAV4+. It was wise that we paid attention to the Trip Advisor recommendation. Can't say definitively, but I would assume this holds true for most all of the country...within a couple of miles of leaving any major city, you will... More

We spent 10 days in Costa Rica with our two kids (7 and 3) and the day with Montezuma Crew was the highlight. The crew is amazing - truly fun and lovely people. The sights and experience are amazing... we saw a mama whale and her baby, three dolphins, snorkeled, swam, fished, and more! Truly amazing,

It all started off early morning at Tambor dock which already is an experience for itself. A small fishermen village where Miquelle and his crew welcome you and take you on board. Heading out to the deep sea the crew already through out the fishing lures and honestly within a few minutes we had a few Tunas and Makrels on... More

David and Miguel are first rate. We spent the day fishing and did a two tank dive at Isla Tortuga and while the diving isn't the best we've done they made sure we saw some spectacular formations and canyon swimming. Lunch was superb with the best quiche I have ever had along with fresh ceviche, surimi, and oysters. Overall a... More

I dove with Miki and crew almost a year ago and still think about the fact that they had no oxygen on the boat and never asked to see my scuba certification card. So yes, a fun trip, but not the way I like to dive.

PIRATA66, Gerente at Montezuma Crew, responded to this review

I regret this opinion, because we have high on the list of safety, oxygen is in our land base in 2 minutes from the dive site, and 25 years of experience make me recognize a dive in a few secondi. la security is not a piece of plastic, but the best dive master, a group maximum 3 divers, a dive...

David & Miguel are super passionate about what they do and it’s contagious. We had a blast last weekend and, more importantly, we felt comfortable the entire trip and can’t wait to dive again. Can’t recommend them enough! -Jake & Julie

David and Miguel made my introduction to diving amazing. I always felt safe, and felt like I learned a lot about the equipment. The dives we did were so great! I would love to go back and see them again. They also took me on an individual dive to make sure I had enough to get my certification. This kind... More

A MUST ON ANY VACATION TO MONTEZUMA. Also wouldn't have been the same without including the fishing part. Such a wonderful excursion. The diving, snorkeling, swimming, and fishing was AWESOME. All three guides were excellent and truly made it an unforgettable experience. Caught a tuna and Lucas cut it up for fresh sashimi right on the boat. Saw Dolphins and... More
