If you are in the Cancun area, don’t miss out on Havana Dive. They are not just a dive operation, because they can customize any tour for your family. They took our family to Isla Mujeres (a small island off of Cancun), snorkeling, a tour of Mayan ruins, shopping, amazing local cuisine…oh yes, and some unforgettable diving.

My husband and sons are avid divers, but I have always been apprehensive to try it…until I met Lilly. She is a wonderful dive instructor! She was kind and patient with me and my first dive was an amazing experience that I will never forget. I will also be diving a lot more now because of Lilly. We can’t wait to return to Cancun and when we do, we will be calling Havana Dive to help us plan some dives and excursions. Hasta luego mi amigos.

We went to Havana Dive for several reasons, First was because we read the reviews on Trip Advisor and they seem to never steer you wrong. Secondly, Lily from Havana Dive was very quick in the responses to my emails. As a first time diver I was nervous about who to pick and making sure I got a great first experience. And after emailing more than 10 dive shops in the area, Havana Dive gave us the best rate for our Open Water Certification.
We are very very happy we choose Havana Dive, Lily did a great job on teaching us all about the things we needed to know to have a good experience underwater, and also made us feel comfortable even if something didnt go as planned while we were underwater.
We received our Open Water Certification, and we are very happy we choose Havana Dive.
The dove boat was very clean and organized, the boat captain was very friendly and took great care of us. Angel and Lily love what they do and you can see they take great pride in their company. We look forward to seeing them both again, as our first time diving instructors have become the only place we would go to dive when we return back to Cancun.
From the very first email, we never felt like a number, or a dollar sign, they made us feel like we were part of the crew, and that was a good feeling.
We saw so many amazing things underwater diving with them, from Eagle Rays, Sting Rays, Barracuda, Angel FIsh, Lobster, King Crabs, and so many colored fish it was amazing! The Cenotes Dos Ojos was also a great dive !!!
All I have to say is if you are going to go diving, and dont know who to go with, pick Angel and Lily at Havana Dive, you will not regret it!

The Havana dive crew is excellent there people that have passion for what there doing! I got an open water certification and my instructors where Angel and Lily and they are amazing people. They are super nice and they love what they do. They are very good instructors and they make sure that you do all the exercises perfect! When your diving with them they will show you all different kinds of fish and show you all different kinds of plants down in the ocean. Angel and Lily are very good people and very good instructors I highly recommend them!!

I have a hard time of figuring out where to start. At Havana Dive, you will get a memorable experience that you will not regret. We had never done any sort of diving before. We chose them (thanks to the great reviews) to get Open Water Certified. From day one, we knew we had made the right choice. Lily and Angel are extremely personable and love what they do. And there is no better of a teacher than one who loves what they do. After passing our Open Water Certifications we decided to continue on to Advanced Open Water with Havana Dive too! During our courses we went to the underwater museum, coral reef a few times, spear fishing, and two ship wrecks! We also went to Cenote Dos Ojos! Talk about Wow!!! Incredible stuff! Even better, was that Angel and Lily, point things out, making sure you get to see it all and don't miss a thing!

As far as the learning goes, they are very informative. They make sure you perform all required exercises and tasks, but not only do they make you perform them, they make sure you can do them and feel confident doing them. They make sure you understand and give you a lot of knowledge, they really want you to leave there comfortable, confident, as well as excited about the diving life.

Since we spent so much time with them, they took us to local places to eat. Trust me when I tell you to trust them, they know where all the good places are. Whether it's at a beach bar or at a authentic Mexican restaurant they will not mislead you.

Angel and Lily are passionate about the diving life, excellent and knowledgeable instructors, and in general just good warm hearted people. We are happy not only to know them as our instructors but now as our friends!

Thank you again Angel and Lily, for this unforgettable experience. We can't wait to come back and do some more diving! If you are in Cancun and wanting a original, personal, and memorable experience you won't be disappointed with Havana Dive!

Angel Alvarado was incredible. He took us to the Cenote Dos Ojos caves. Wow, is alli can say! Then after diving, he surprised us by stopping at the Mayan ruins followed by a stop at a restaurant/bar overlooking the Caribbean. You actually can sit and drink up in a tree house. He then invited me and my entire family to a barbecue at his house. Talk about hospitable. If you ever dive in the Cancun area, dive with Angel. His dive business is called Havana Dive.
