Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is my second time completing a course with the same instructor, which is Señor Hugo Galvez. I cannot begin to tell you how proficient and professional he conducts the course. I am proud to say I am officially an Advanced Open Water Diver thanks to Mr. Galvez. I had to do a refresher or ReActivate course beforehand, since it had been a few years since my last dive and I was worried that I wouldn't do so well but after Hugo's briefing, patience, and explanations, I felt extremely confident in going back into the water, he carefully and with great detail went over the things I had forgotten, and made sure I put my gear together and answered all questions with great patience. It's truly a personal experience as well, he make sure all his students are 100% confident. His passion, energy and love for what he does is obvious to anyone who meets him, and encourages you and makes you want to continue the learning journey and adventure. We had 6 incredible dives, he knew exactly where to look for specific species that you'd wanna see underwater, sharks, turtles, eels, stingrays..etc He knows these waters by heart, as if it is his living room 😄 if you ever think about diving, do yourself a favor and make sure to take it with Hugo Galvez, the absolute best instructor there is! Thank you for everything. 👌🏼🤙🏼 He also took some amazing underwater photos of our dives for great memories!

Had a great 4 dives with Lars and Juan from Tropical Sons. My son was a bit nervous as he had not dived for a while and they were great to get him fully confident. Good quality gear and great communication. Thanks Hugo and team.

First class service. Juan was exceptional, really went the extra effort to make our experience fantastic. The equipment, BC/Regs/etc, was all in like new condition. And was high end AquaLung gear. My kids are certified but still somewhat new to it all and Juan took great care of them. The boat they used was large and had plenty of space to move around and find shade. Not crowded like most other scuba boats.

The service and the diver were amazing. The harbor was closed in the morning by Cancun authorities. Hugo kept us updated the entire time to minimize the delay. Once on the boat Lars was a perfect SCUBA guide and helped us prepare and put on our gear and was great with my 11 year old daughter. Plus, we saw a giant turtle on the dive. Highly recommend.

Hugo arranged a wonderful morning of diving for me very last minute, including a bull shark dive. He went above and beyond in all aspects and is a wonderful person, and great dive master. I cannot wait to go back to Cancun to dive with Tropical Sons again!!

Had a great experience getting scuba diving certified with Tropical Sons! Lars was a great instructor - highly knowledgeable and willing to move us at a fast enough pace to complete the certification with two extra dives the second day. Hugo and Lars made our visit to Cancun unforgettable!

I had a blast with Hugo and Juan.
I dove multiple places in Cancun and Islas Mujeres including the famous MUSA.

I completed 3 PADI certifications in four days with them.
Nitrox, EFR and Rescue Diver. I enjoyed the whole process.

Juan is always trying to spot sea life, we found Stingrays and turtles. it was amazing.

I’d recommend Tropical Sons to any person who wants to discover scuba diving or is already an experienced scuba diver.
