Me and my wife are coming to Ambergris Caye in November and would like to do some diving. We have completed all necessary training and lacking only open water certification, because it is too cold to do this right now here.

I was wondering who provides open water certification on AC, what the prices might be, how long does it takes?

As far as I understand, we just need to complete one or two dives with a PADI certified instructor to get the license. Any help or information on this matter would be really appreciated.

You need to complete four open water dives. You will do two dives one day and two the next. You will spend five minutes or so demenstrating your skills and then thirty minutes or so diving around the reef. Most dives shops offer open water certfication for some were around $225. Two of the best operators are Amigos Del Mar and Pro Tech. Amigos Del Mar is a rather large operator and Pro Tech is rather small. You can not go wrong with either of the two.
