Dive Nicaragua started with two enthusiastic young nicaraguan ecologists, whom guided by scientific curiosity decided to document and research the marine ecosystems of the country. People watched them and suddenly started asking if there was a way to learn how to dive in Nicaragua, shortly after they both became PADI Instructors.
Between 2005 and 2008, the courses where sporadic, and diving gear was rented to friends and colleague divers. It was in 2009 that Dive Nicaragua was born as a formal dive school, and started offering all PADI recreational courses. In 2016, Fabio Buitrago became Course Director, and starts teaching Instrcutor Development Courses (IDCs).
