Los Delfines Watersports S.A. - diving school
Puerto Viejo de Talamanca - Limón
Costa Rica, America Central




Click for Puerto Limon, Costa Rica Forecast
LOS DELFINES WATERSPORTS S.A. was opened in November 2000 by Martien and Saskia.

The diving school is situated 300 meters away from the main road, surrounded in natural beauty, in the small and peaceful town of Cocles, only 4 km outside of Puerto Viejo center.

For our diving and snorkeling guests who are staying in the vicinity of Puerto Viejo and do not have a rental car, we offer free transport to and from the hotel/cabina. Because we enjoy personal contact with our guests, we train and do the guided dives in small groups .

Diving Courses (International Standards from PADI) start daily, without a minimum of students in a relaxed atmosphere. There is no strict, stressful hourly schedule. Who likes stress during holidays...? The theoretical material is taught with video and/or CD-Rom in our classroom. A book in English is included in the course.

The so called "Confined Water Training" is done in the swimming pool of a near-by hotel or in the protected bay of Punta Uva. For the necessary openwater training dives we'll visit one of the various reefs in front of Puerto Viejo, Punta Uva and Manzanillo.

The gear we use (among other things) is: a BAUER Mariner compressor, Sea Quest BCD´s and Aqualung regulators. All this gear has been purchased by us in September 2000 and is maintained and tested by us on a regular basis
