Took an open water diver course at Carabao diving school and it turned out better than I was expecting. Xavi was our instructor and he explained everything in detail. I felt completely save with him during all the dives. Thanks you for this great experience!

The place was not cleaned daily, the towels smelled like plastic and the common area wasn’t any thing special. I would definitely not recommend this hostel if you’re not into diving. The location is also very isolated - if you don’t want to spend loads...More

Probably the best dive centre on the island. Xavier Martineau made learning scuba fun and simple. Small group of 4 and they take you to four different amazing dive sites. Happy I got certified with Caraboa!
