  • Maya and PJ were absolutely fantastic to dive with. They're both wonderful, friendly and talkative. We dove with Maya on two separate days (4 dives total) and all were a blast. Thanks Rich Coast!
  • We had a great expedition with Rich Coast Diving during our stay in Costa Rica. Our hotel was about a 45-minute drive from the beach, but the roads were nice and paved the entire way. While the other clients on the boat were scuba diving, we were able to snorkel around the islands we visited at the same time (we are not great divers!) The crew members were great and very knowledgable of the area, and PJ was a ton of fun! Highly recommend checking out Rich Coast Diving Tours if you are visiting Playa del Coco :)
  • Our guide didn’t really do much to assist us, but everything else was great!
  • Had a fabulous day! Two of us completed the discovery dive and two of us snorkled. Great staff organization ; friendly, supportive and professional. Mau and Samantha were particularly helpful guides. We saw an abundance of different fish, morray eels , sting rays and two whitetip sharks. Highly recommend!
  • The best dive shop in Playas del Coco. Their Service is top notch. Trainning is superior, safe and always following PADI standards. Dive site are well chosen. Boats are very comfortable and crew are friendly, professional and helpful. If you want to get diving trainning, Rich Coast is the place. Thank you Martin and Brenda!
