We had different dive masters each day that ranged from good to great. Sandwiches, water, and a fruit or cookie snack are provided.If you let them know what you... More

Referred by Pelagic Visions John Clark from Cozumel. Our morning dives were arranged. All we had to do was show up! Kraus drove us to Chac Mool caverns. Explained the cenotes, showed us the jungle from the bottom side up and answered all our questions! Showed us Canucks a good time!! Thank You Klaus. We will be back.

The instructor was aware that I had dove many times and she kept grabbing on me during the dive by my arm, hand and take to lead me. We paid money to enjoy our dive but instead were limited because we had been scheduled with a class getting certified so 20 mins each dive we couldnt explore because we needed... More

I did three days of diving; two days of reefs and the Mama Vina wreck. All the dives were great and one of the things that made them great was the personalized attention from my guide. Playa Scuba specializes in small groups and it is a lot better than being with 10 to 15 other divers.

Playa Dive Shop is the place to dive with if you want small groups and personalized service. We did our open water referral with them and I later booked a playa reef dive with them while my husband did the three dive package.

Did a Cenote dive with Klaus and had a great time. Very knowlegeable, professional dive master and of the history and stories of the Cenotes. To say he is a charachter is an understatement as well. Had a great time, well worth the time and dollars.
