What to expect
The PADI course consists of three main phases: Online Knowledge Development to understand the basic fundamentals of autonomous diving, we will give you a digital study material, you should watch some videos and then participate in a doubt class with the instructor. Normally this takes 1 to 2 full days, but if you buy the course with enough time you can receive your study material before traveling and so when you arrive you only need the pool and dives at sea: Immersions in Confined Waters to learn basic diving skills; In the Caribbean hotel pool, we don't take you to the sea until you feel comfortable in the water in a controlled environment. Open Water Dives on Baru Island to use your skills and explore! Two days of diving, 2 dives per day, 4 dives in the sea in total, from 7:00 am to 1:30 pm. All the time a PADI dive instructor will be with you underwater so you can gain confidence and enjoy safely. We see a great variety of fauna and flora, the water temperature is very comfortable, the visibility is excellent most of the year and we have more than 30 different sites on the island of Baru.

Wanted to do a Padi open water
He tried to tell me The hotel will not allow me to visit te pool but I did it. Told him I will book somewhere else if I can’t. He replied you can book somewhere else.. finally he found excuse to not let me book it. He said the instructor is a women ad better I go back to te school I was! I did not told him anything. Find out the women instructor of previous school . who was playing game ad very rude and impolite and blocked me on her wats app. Was her! She started yell on me on te boat because I came back onboard ad was not able to breath ad wet suit way too small ad I told her ad did not listed me. Etc etc. I am customer and paid money areas very nice with her. She bad temper. And the man of that school told me I am not a man after I told him about her what. Thought . Flew from Usa for my Padi and they treat customers like that!

I had such an amazing time with Buzos de Baru. The instructors are really good and the experience provided was simply stunning, specially because of the places they took us to dive for the certificate.
