We visited Potrero with the intention of scuba diving, and after talking with Mauricio for a few minutes, he assured us that doing multiple days of 2-tank dives was a great value for money and very safe. We did a total of 3 days of 2-tank diving to the Catalinas Islands, and had a BLAST. Giovanni was our instructor and... More

My travel agent recommended The Aauacenter when I went to Costa Rica and I was NOT disappointed! Mauricio runs a very clean well kept dive center. They have all the equipment on-site for use and the gear is kept up very well. The dive masters on my 4 dives were Risky, Sam, David, Stephano, and Cori. They were all very... More

Celine was awesome! We did the discover scuba session as my kids haven't completed their open water dives yet (didn't have enough vacation time for them to complete their certification in CR). She did a great job of adapting our experience to our experience level. It was SUPER windy that day so we didn't go to the Catalina islands, but... More

My husband and I went out with Aquacenter three times, for a total of six dives. We are certified rescue, with roughly 160 dives between us. This outfit fully met our expectations, and then some. Knowing diving in this area of the Pacific has both days of limited visibility and strong surge, we researched the area's dive shops ahead of... More

Following a magical 2 weeks in Costa Rica with many wonderful wow moments, this was definitely one of the mind-blowing highlights. The staff were excellent and very professional and friendly, the equipment was in excellent condition. Nico from Tamarindo Diving was an excellent Divemaster who took excellent care. On the dive we saw a 5m manta, 2 white tip reef... More

Could not recommend this trip enough. We booked a discovery dive with Celine after trying a scuba demonstration at our resort. We had a good time trying out scuba gear and the Celines passion for diving was very motivating. We had the training session and 2 dives on the same day but I was very happy with the pacing and...

We scheduled three days of diving with Aquacenter. Our divemaster was Celine all three days and she did a great job! The weather wasn't the best when we were there. There was a lot of wind and the water was choppy. I would say the current was moderate and so was the surge, but they did a great job finding... More

Only 4 dives due to a cold setting in, but like most of my experience, this was a good one. It had been windy for several days so the visibility was limited--10-20 feet on the first day--better the second. Large variety of fish, including several Green Morays and 3 white tip sharks. The Aquacenter is a fairly small operation, but... More

I've always wanted to get certified at scuba diving and I am sooo glad my buddy found this shop. Celine was super cool and just an awesome teacher. If you are ever in this part of Costa Rica and want to learn how to dive, I would highly recommend Aquacenter. Be sure to ask for Celine!
