Hello everyone,

I'm a 32 year old Canadian construction worker, with dreams becoming a scuba instructor. I've been diving for around 10 years and always had a dream of turning it into my life. I have put this dream off for work and more recently covid to many times and now finally decided I can't any more. I am working out my plan to go south for roughly 3 months to start, selling or moving most of my stuff into storage. In this 3 months I want to do a divemaster internship and my instructor course and get as much training as possible. So far I am thinking of doing this in Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua or Panama. If you by chance read this and have any advice it would be greatly appreciated and helpful.

I just don't log dives
You wouldn't be the first to do this kind of thing. Go for it. Check out Utila Dive Center. I did not pursue a DM cert but spent a month on Utila diving and hanging out with others who were working toward DM and instructor, and UDC seemed to have a good program.
