My first day on Roatan was January 7th, 2004 after spending nearly three years traveling through Latin America.
It did not take long to get my first certification as a diver after someone told me that I only would know 50% of the island if i didn´t learn to dive.
I got my first and second certification as an exchange for some lamps that I made for a restaurant, then the Rescue came courtesy of my English Instructor and then i was on the verge of becoming a diving professional,the next step Serena and Giacomo (the owner of Pura Vida dive resort) made it possible.
My first job as a Dive Master was with Nuria in Octopus Dive School, and with her financial support i was able to make my Instructor course. Eventually I worked on two other major Dive Centers.
After ten years on the island, nine working as a Dive Instructor and more than 3500 dives, in association with my Open Water Instructor Mal Forrest and his wife Sofia Ocampo have undertaken this beautiful project called “Sun Divers Roatan.”
