Casa de Buceo (Diving House) is a company founded in 1991 by Francisco Martinez and Maria E. Pelaez originally with the name “Tienda de Buceo el Rodadero” . Since then we have certificated more than 5.000 divers from all parts of Colombia and the world always being known not only the best scuba diving service but the best treatment to our customers. With them and all our group of interest we have grown as a family and now we have the pleasure to take underwater a second and even third generation of scuba divers and besides that our sons David Gutierrez and Mario Sebastian Martinez are the instructors that help us keep running our diving businesses in Santa Marta and our Diving Center in Panama “Dream Diving Panama”.

Today we invite you to be part of our under water family in Casa de Buceo so you can always have your place right into the sea.

I would only trust a good instructor to introduce a new person to diving and David was great! The dive equipment is well maintained and they have a range of sizes that fit well. I noticed there was no... More

From the moment I was introduced to David and the crew, I felt a fantastic vibe. The way this shop organizes itself is wonderful. Not to mention the unique underwater landscape in Santa Marta. Highly recommended!

Doing the Open Water Dive with David and Pacho was the best decision ever. They were so welcoming and nice. I was first a little afraid of my first dive in the sea but then the instructor just took me by the hand and said: come, we'll go for a 'walk'. I felt so save then and really enjoyed the... More
