My boyfriend got his Open Water certificate at La Buga 5 years ago. When planning our trip to Costa Rica, we decided to go to Panama just so I could also get certified at La Buga since he had such a great experience 5 years ago. We were not disappointed. Leandro was an incredible instructor and made me feel comfortable even when I got a little nervous during my first confined water dive. I felt that I could trust him entirely and he did such a great job explaining everything to me. By the end of the course, I really felt like I knew how to dive! After the course, I had some awesome fun dives with Tony - such a fun divemaster! Everyone at La Buga was amazing - my boyfriend and I felt like we had a home on the island during our stay since we were greeted warmly and made to feel comfortable whenever we stopped by the dive shop. The owner, Ricardo, was great and continuously asked for input on how he could improve. Well, there's nothing to improve! He's done a great job with the place - it's how a dive shop should be! I hope we get the chance to go back!
