We had such a great time snorkelling with Maurizio and Mattia. They are really lovely, caring people who are truly passionate about what they do and about protecting the beautiful environment which they introduce you to.
Like another reviewer says, all the other tour guides in the area simply drop you off at an area which may or may not be good for snorkelling while they stay in the boat. Maurizio and Mattia, however, get in the water with you and are particularly keen to share their knowledge with you. They are very patient with anyone who isn't a particularly strong swimmer or who may take a little longer to get used to the mask etc. They have a great eye for spotting fish, particular types of coral etc. I remember they spent ages making sure that everyone had seen the baby nurse shark and massive balloon fish. They are really not in it for the money - but because they love what they do and they want to make sure that everyone is able to explore the incredible underwater environment that Bocas has to offer.
Keep up the good work, guys - if we ever go back to Central America, we'll definitely come to pay you another visit!
