What people are saying about Arico

It was wonderful! Turtles and everything promised were seen - a wonderful variety of fish and sea creatures! We enjoyed it so much that we are going diving tomorrow - also with the two of them, Natalie and André! Great guides! Tomorrow would actually be their day off and because we are leaving soon they are diving with us! Great! Thank you both :)

Great, we were lucky that we were the only ones. Ron has the patience of a saint and is excellent at helping you. Rafeala sent beautiful photos and emailed a beautiful video tape. We drove 35 km to book with Ron and Rafeala and it was worth it... because this is in a protected marine area. In this way we value nature. Mother and daughter

It was a great experience and we loved being on the tour as a private group. We saw a lot, including a turtle that appeared from the ground. It was impressive and the photos that were taken during the tour were sent to us straight away. We can recommend the tour to everyone.

We went snorkeling this morning and we loved it ❤️❤️❤️ We saw turtles and all kinds of marine animals ❤️❤️ Our guide was incredible at listening to us and super reassuring ❤️❤️❤️

Raffaella and Ron were fantastic! They were very patient with this beginner. Plus, we saw a sea turtle!
