Meet our Adventure Divers Zihuatanejo Team!


They say you are only as good as the people you employ and Adventure Divers Zihua is proud to have the members of our dive team as part of our extended family.  We put the utmost trust in our dive professionals and we are committed to providing our clients with a highly personalized scuba dive service and PADI standard instruction.

Representing PADI, one of the most respected and widely recognized scuba dive organizations worldwide, Pako provides certifications for recreational scuba divers from Scuba Diver to Advanced Open Water and specialty dive certifications, as well as professional certifications including Divemaster and Assistant Instructor.

Mariona Casademont our resident divemaster intern from Barcelona, Spain who has been working hard through her internship to become part of our trusted team!   She now leads our certified divers on trips to our local dive sites with all the knowledge and preparation she obtained throughout her divemaster internship.

Veronica Grande our lovely administrative assistant who is passionate about diving and when she’s not in the shop helping divers get set up for trips, is on her way to advancing her dive certifications to ultimately become a professional divemonster!

Angel Vazquez has also worked his way through the dive master internship to become part of our crew.  His knowledge, experience and great rapport with our dive clients from all over the world makes him a valuable member of the Adventure Diver Zihua family.

Captain Antonio Lara who plays a crucial role in the safety and enjoyment of our divers about our 26-foot launch boat La Aventura.  His experience as both a captain and certified diver ensure our guests with a great dive experience aboard a sound dive vessel.


Far Right: Albert Cannas divemaster intern and DJ extraordinaire, hard working and full of energy, Albert came to us first as a dive client and then returned as a dive intern after realizing that Mexico and specifically Zihuatanejo was a way better place to winter than his hometown in Spain.  We look forward to welcoming him back as a professional member of our team this winter 2017.

Our scuba dive staff is bilingual in Spanish and English and we provide courses and instruction in both languages.

Come meet our crew in person, by phone or on the web.

Find our new shop location in downtown Zihuatanejo on Calle Ejido #43, just across from the Casa de Cultura.
