So why should I do the PADI Open Water Certification in Costa Rica?

• As a certified PADI Open Water Diver, the most widely recognized and respected dive credential in the world, you have the freedom to dive with a buddy independent of a professional. That way you’re free to explore the down-side of Costa Rica’s world famous bio-diversity and won’t miss out the most up-close and personal experience with Costa Rica’s wildlife!

• If you already tried a PADI Discover Scuba Diving experience or are PADI Scuba Diver certified, check with your instructor to see how credit from these courses may apply to the open water diver program.

• Can’t wait to do it? Check our digital learning options and start your training right now by clicking on the Whale-Shark (...or the girl, the “e” of eLearning) I clicked the snorkel ;-)
