Entonces...Cuando y por qué podría necesitar hacer el curso de buceo Padi Reactivate ?

• Cuando no ha estado buceando durante mucho tiempo (más de un año), uno pierde algunas de sus habilidades de buceo y la idea de volver al agua podría ponerlo nervioso. El buceo es una actividad relajada que siempre se adapta a los menos experimentados. Sin embargo, en algún momento puede olvidar ciertos elementos esenciales y por lo tanto comprometer la seguridad a expensas de otros buceadores.

• En el Centro de Buceo Summer-Salt nos preocupamos por el bienestar y la seguridad de todos los buzos y nos adaptamos a él para que cada buzo disfrute de los buceos que corresponden a su experiencia y nivel de entrenamiento. • Al participar en un programa ReActivate, podemos asegurar que usted disfrutará de la experiencia y lo convertirá en uno de sus mejores recuerdos durante su visita a Costa Rica.
