"So here is the deal. If you're in Tamarindo or Flamingo and want to dive, you call Nico at Be Water. Full stop. 
We called at the last minute and Nico took it all from there! He made all the arrangements for my wife, daughter and I to get on the schedule and get our OWD certification. Transportation, PADI instructor , everything. We ended up having two amazing days of diving with a crew that exceeded standards in safety and customer service. And for novice divers, this was critical to me. Equipment and boat were great. It's great being part of the scuba community! Pura vida..."
