The hotel is in a great location if you are looking to explore Tecolote and Balandra. We chose this hotel because of it's location being the closest to those areas. The ocean around the hotel is beautiful and calm. The water is turquoise in the bay. You feel like you are looking into an aquarium when you look anywhere near...

Don't be put off by the sloppy guy in the Malecon office. The dive trips organized by Cantamar are really good. I had the pleasance of diving with Julie, the guide. She stayed really friendly and enthusiastic even after she was challenged by some over demanding Germans. Really professional and a grand day out.

We did not visit the Hotel, we just hired the snorkeling tour with the sea lions at Isla Espíritu Santo. Everything was extraordinary: Ana and Sergio, both Spanish natives, plus local Captain Armando were very knowledgable, well organized and as enthusiastic as if it was their first time (and actually we did this after spring break's extremely busy season!!!). Gear...

Excellent experience. We arrived on a cruise ship and Rodrigo was there to pick us up in a very nice van. Our guide Julie was amazing. We were a little inexperienced and she made sure we were safe and having fun. Our boat captain Javier, got us up close to the whale sharks and also made sure we were safe....

I didn't stay at the hotel which honestly looked like it had seen better days but the tour of Espíritu Santo Island was fantastic. Great staff, friendly and very comfortable trip. Got to swim with Sea Lions and spent time at a great beach spot. Would highly recommend them for the tour at least.

I started writing Mr Ramirez (the Hotel Manager) about staying at Club Cantamar several times before arriving in La Paz. I wanted to know about dive trips to Espirito Island and w/the Whale Sharks. He assured me that tours went every day from his Club and I would enjoy my dives with the finest dive masters in all of La...

This review only refers to boat trips I did with Cantamar. Overall, I was very pleased with their service. All the crew, starting from the office guy (marine biologist) to skipper (Armando) and guides (Jorge and Javier) were attentive, informative and helpful. We got a briefing before we entered the water as to how to behave in order to stay...

Beautiful location, nice beach on property. Small pool. Place to be for whale and sea lion tours as boats leave from there. Nice rooms but outside damaged by last hurricane. Chef and food outstanding. Prices and drinks inexpensive. Times for anything are loose. Have to admit we were only persons there so sometimes had to hunt for people but when...

My husband and I visited here 10 years ago and finally got back, bringing our teenage son and 8 other divers with us. We definitely won't wait another 10 years before we return. Our group loved the resort, staff and diving so much they are already asking for us to return. As a trip leader I can't say enough about...

This is a review of the whale shark trip we had the misfortune of booking through the Club Cantamar office on the Malecon in La Paz. If you have any interest in wildlife conservation, DO NOT book a tour with this irresponsible company. Why? 1. Due to skipper carelessness, our boat HIT A WHALE SHARK when returning to shore, knocking...
