Additional Notes

Welcome

If you are coming to Costa Rica to explore wide expanses of unspoiled nature, lush tropical forest full of wild life and lots of pristine beaches, Costa Ballena is where you want to vacation.

Welcome to our little corner of paradise!

MAD ABOUT DIVING is the only PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre in Osa Peninsula. PADI is the largest association of recreational divers in the world and we recognize certification cards from all other diving associations.

Dive, snorkel or train with us and find out first hand why so many clients make us their number one choice.

Explore the best dive sites that Costa Rica has to offer and discover the beauty that Caño Island Biological Reserve, Marino Ballena National Park and Costa Ballena have to offer.

MAD, short for MAD ABOUT DIVING, is known for having the highest quality service. We treat clients like guests: you never cart your gear around, change your tanks or rinse equipment; our friendly staff does it for you.

As the premier dive facility, we also deliver top notch training. Our team consists of PADI Divemasters and Instructors that have years of professional diving experience in a multitude of marine environments.

We offer a full spectrum of recreational and professional courses. We are fully committed to helping all students develop the best skills possible while having lots of fun. All levels of training are offered in English, Spanish and French.

MAD invites you to discover Beautiful Oceans Coral Reef Adventures! This exciting new program will allow you to better explore, understand and enjoy the marine environment.

We have the highest credentials. Michel, our resident PADI Course Director, has over 20 years experience in the diving industry. As a DAN Training Center, we actively promote safe snorkeling and diving practices and offer diver insurance on site.

MAD promotes sustainable tourism. Our permanent team is 100% Costa Rican; through Beautiful Oceans, we are members of 1% for the Planet; we voluntarily adhere to the strictest eco-diving, eco-snorkelling and echo-tourism practices and participate in and help support numerous environmental education and protection programs and  community projects.
