Experience new adventures with the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course as you step beyond the PADI Open Water Diver level. By conducting these five dives you have the opportunity to try some of diving's most rewarding and useful specialty activities, such as deep diving, digital underwater photography, night diving and much more. This license allows you to dive anywhere in the world to a maximum depth of 30 meters As with all courses, the professionalism of the dive center and the instructor is vital. Pair up incredible jungle on land with amazing diving in the ocean and a top class dive center in Quepos and you will have an experience for life.
The beauty of the reef here is not the corals growing in it, but the topography of the old lava flow. Big boulders, underwater mazes and dramatic walls are what you will be surrounded by. Take these incredible formations and add a healthy marine life to it such as most common reef fish, some funky octopus and a good variety of eels and crustaceans. For the larger pelagic, you might get lucky with anything from reef sharks, rays, sea turtles, dolphins and in season the majestic humpback whales and manta rays (Dec - April).
Surrounded by rainforest filled with monkeys and exotic birds, Puerto Quepos drapes itself across a tropical inlet surrounded by primary rainforest. The village center is a colorful six-block square of restaurants, bars, hotels, bakeries, and art galleries all fronted by the main beach and harbor. Even though Quepos is well visited and growing, it maintains many of its sleepy and humble beginnings.
