Agua Rica Diving Center
Agua Rica Diving Center

Located in Tamarindo in the province of Guanacaste, on Costa Rica's northwest Pacific coast, Agua Rica Diving Center offers Boat Trips for Snorkeling and SCUBA Diving. They also offer PADI certifications and they are an SSI Dealer.

The dives range from 50 feet to 70 feet with mild to moderate currents. One thing that all divers will notice here is that diving in Costa Rica is very different from the usual Caribbean reef diving. Visibility is a lot poorer and there are some noticeably colder thermoclines. The poor visibility is due to higher amount of plankton compared to the Caribbean, but the plankton attracts larger marine animals and if divers come here to see the big ones, they will not be disappointed.
Remember to look up,down,and all around while diving here
Small intimate groups, max 6 plus crew.
Extended bottom times.
Choice of dive sites.
Personalized service.
Multilingual staff.
