My husband and I visited here 10 years ago and finally got back, bringing our teenage son and 8 other divers with us. We definitely won't wait another 10 years before we return. Our group loved the resort, staff and diving so much they are already asking for us to return. As a trip leader I can't say enough about...

This is a review of the whale shark trip we had the misfortune of booking through the Club Cantamar office on the Malecon in La Paz. If you have any interest in wildlife conservation, DO NOT book a tour with this irresponsible company. Why? 1. Due to skipper carelessness, our boat HIT A WHALE SHARK when returning to shore, knocking...

Peasant staff,comfortable quarters, and exquisite views of the sea. There the dive team worked their tanks off and the sea lions stole the show. Rooms were Spartan but very good for divers. Again kudos to the wonderful diving crew and captain fr

On my first dive trip to the Sea of Cortez I randomly chose Club Cantamar (every dive outfit in La Paz has as many good reviews as bad so I flipped a mental coin). I absolutely loved my dive master, Aaron. It was low season so the divers weren't abundant. The company arranged for me to join a snorkeling group...
