Very thorough, professional. Highly recommended. Quick response on Email. Always give detailed briefing before we dive, so we know what we are going to expect in the cenotes, except the beauty of them exceed our expectation.

If you are looking for a guide to show you a good time then Louis is your man. Small intimate groups of up to 4 divers make for a non commercial experience.
