Playa del Carmen is a great place to learn to scuba with its shallow coral reefs. The underwater world is just magical. Nicky (skinny blond woman with Aussie accent) was a fantastic instructor—very safe, thorough, and knows where to find creatures to show us. Do the videos and bookwork before your trip if you can. Don't pay for the PADI... More

My husband and I did a three day dive packages plus whale shark watching with Playa Scuba, not to be confused with Scuba Playa. We did a close by Cenote on Saturday. Sunny explained everything on the way and when we got to the Cenote we could jump right it. The Cenote was so different than ocean diving. I highly... More
