I took my PADI open water course at Nirvana Diving School (formerly Diver Down Cozumel). Our instructor Socrates and our instructor assistant Esther were amazing - extremely knowledgeable, helpful, kind and friendly! We saw so many animals including turtles, stingrays and eels! I had the best time in Cozumel and I can't wait to come back and do more dives... More

Our course was originally from Dec 26-28, 3 full days of scuba diving training (including the textbook portion), but we opted to add two more boat dives on the 29th. The price of the course was...

We didn't regret our choice to go with Diver down Cozumel (newly named Nirvana diving school). Socrates the owner is a lovely person, he listened to our expectations and accommodated the week to fit all our plans!... More

I went diving with Socrates because a local friend recommended him! Was an excellent recommendation. Socrates was awesome: very chill yet professional and has been diving in the area for almost 20 years! Really enjoyed my dives!
