    I'm a relatively experienced diver (PADI Rescue with 100+ dives) who is looking to "go pro" with the goal of eventually owning a dive shop somewhere. I'm considering doing my DMT in C America to be followed up with my Instructor's training in SE Asia later in the year.

    Looking for recommendations for places to do my DMT in C America, both general (ie, Honduras v Belize) and specific (actual dive shops).

    Thanks in advance for the help

    You could try Roatan. A couple options but there's many more. A couple friends did their DM with GoPro Caribbbean (the first link) and stayed on for instructor - it's pretty reasonable to live there. Both of these shops have a shared DM house in the West End - you could walk to GoPro but Barefoot's shop is on the south side of the island. I've dove with both recreationally.

    GoPro Caribbean is affiliated with Coconut Tree Divers and their DM trainees were often our boat leading dives or shadowing us as part of their training. It's a fun crew also. I overheard part of a training lecture once since it was being held at the table behind me on their patio - Wil seemed very thorough. He's like the longest active CD on Roatan or something...

    Never been to Utila but Utila Dive Center is a respected op.
