I have just recently had the great pleasure of attending a 4-day workshop with one of the world’s best freedivers. Perhaps most importantly, though, Carlos Coste is an excellent teacher, well attuned to the details of performance. Our sessions included yoga as well as fitness and depth training. In-water, we focued mainly on the Frenzel equalisation technique/maneuver. Throughout, Carlos provided apt critique and good advice for improvment. As to the place, Bonaire is simply an idilic freediving location. Less than10 minutes by boat and otherwise within 50 meters from the shore, perfectly blue, clear, deep, calm waters await. A Puro Pulmón Freediving School runs a smooth operaton with great custom and great facilities i.e boat, pool etc. Many thanks to Carlos for tailoring such a well balanced workshop and many thanks also to Gaby for making my stay such rich and pleasurable one when out of the water.

Fast responding to my mail, fast schedule making, fast responding on every question I had. As an advanced freediver I got valuable tipps for developing myself! I will repeat this again!

We spent the day as a family (mum, dad and two teenagers) with Carlos Coste learning the basics of freediving and will use the knowledge for the rest of our lives. First let me say that we have been all over the Caribbean for the express purpose of "extreme snorkeling",.. so we were not novices, and we simply had no interest in all the complexity of managing all the equipment and safety limitations of scuba. And now we can enjoy some of the benefits! We can all get down 20 feet (3 meters) easily and stay a long time, and when properly motivated - by seeing a passing large ray or sea turtle - we can get 30 to 40 feet (10 to 13 meters) no problem! What a joy! Carlos is an amazing teacher. He was just wonderful with the teenagers and patient with us "old folks" until we finally got our mojo going. Love it!.. Don't miss it if you want a an experience for a lifetime of memories and new experiences.

Carlos Coste and his team at A Puro Pulmon ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all levels of freediving. Carlos is a world champion and multiple Guinness world record holder, yet is as effective with my trepidatious eighth grade daughter as with an advanced competitor. Multi-lingual, so if you're like me and speak only English, that's OK. If you are a snorkeler and want to acquire some skills to improve your experience, an afternoon or multiple sessions with Carlos are fantastic steps; likewise if you are experienced with apnea or if you simply want to experience the sea and your relationship with it differently. Bonaire and Carlos are the perfect combination to engage with the sea in the best way. Highly recommended.

Being an active diver the idea to dive without a tank was something I always wanted to try. Carlos and his team have a great amount of experience and are excellent instructors on the art of free diving. After some theory, exercises on land and two extensive dives I could easily get to 25.5 meter! Bonaire is a great place to learn since the reefs start at 3 meter with great viz and a lovely temperature.

I can highly recommend the one day intro course. And I think it's great value for money!
