2015 ended nice for us here at Rich Coast Diving. Our airport is getting bigger and more tourist are discovering the beauty of Costa Rica. There are now direct flights from England which creates a nice melt pot of British and American English in the town. Last week I was in the super market and I just noticed all the British accents which was pretty new for this area of the world. Somehow it gives this vibe that I used to get when we took a trip to Spain or Greece when I was little. Many tourist, talking their own language and all in shorts with red sunburned legs sticking out. I must say I like the atmosphere 🙂
The effect of town getting busier of course helps the dive community as well and we are proud to announce that Martin reached the level of Platinum Course Director! This is the first time a Course Director reached this level in the country.
When we first started Rich Coast Diving, divers where just discovering the magic of the underwater world here in Costa Rica. Now divers know that the Pacific has loads to offer from small creatures to big schools of fish with massive bull sharks and Giant manta rays. Besides the dive industry growing, the PADI Pro interest is also growing.
Of course this did not happen overnight, it took loads of input from us and our staff, marketing, online research, social media and patience. But we did it, We are the only CDC facility in Costa Rica with now the first and only Platinum Course Director!
Platinum Course Director is at least 100 or more pro certifications. so lets hope 2016 continues and just incase you are interested to be part of the Rich Coast pro team: our next IDC starts April 3rd.
