My trip in Taganga was excellent, thanks to the people of Calipso. They are very profesional, yet familiar. They even invited me to their Christmas party! I recommend this center to everyone who likes a personal aproach.

GOOD: I had a great time on the dive and really liked the instructors and the group I was with. The lunch provided was nice and the equipment good. BAD: The boat ride out is pretty wild (I knew what to expect because I had gone diving in Colombia before) but it may be a scary experience, for those not... More

I couldn't have made a better decision than to dive with Calipso. The shop staff was extremely friendly and helpful in going over the different options/pricing in a clear and concise manner. I did the 2 day/1 night (5 dive) safari to Tayrona and the beach, diving, accommodations, and food were all excellent. Barak was the dive master/guide for all... More

Great teaching, professional staff, a unique diving experience. It would have been great to do the safari but we were lucky enough to do one day of it. Thoroughly recommend calipso dive centre! Alice, Ralph, Tommy and Joel

Good experience with the 3 days dive safari in Parc Tayrona. Lack of professionalism though and completely disorganized : they never asked for my license or asked to fill any form, the equipment is not good and limited with sizes, the team is disorganized you are pretty sure you don't get the same wet suit for each of your dives......
