I did my open water certification with Nicky who was great. I felt comfortable the whole time even though I hadn't really dived before. My boyfriend did a 3 day dive package including the cenotes and cozumel and said they were some of the best dives he'd ever done. We picked Playa Scuba because they were one of the cheapest... More

I did two cenotes dives and one playa dive and really had an excellent time. Klaus was wonderful and the whole experience was great. The cenotes are amazing to dive! Like spelunking but underwater! I've never done anything like it before.

I did the scuba "Explore" package, which was a 1-day scuba intro. I had a fantastic time! My host, Nicky, was awesome. She was very friendly, informative, addressed all of my questions, was clearly very knowledgeable and passionate about diving, and was simply fun. I recommend you book it with her! This was an awesome experience. My friend dove for... More

My wife and I are certified scuba divers who chose the 3 days of diving package with Playa Scuba. Good choice. Day 1 was with Sunny diving in a cenote. We chose cenote Chac-mool after discussing it with Sunny. Very nice location and Sunny was an excellent dive guide. Day 2 was boat diving with Mara, off Playa del Carmen.... More

Playa Scuba is fantastic. Klaus and his staff of awesome guides and instructors made our vacation. The price is the great and the service is the best on the Playa. I spent a good amount of time hanging out there completing my Open Water PADI with Nicky and Mara. Not only did they take the time to make me comfortable... More

We had an amazing experience diving with Playa Scuba and we were very lucky to have Mara as our instructor. This being our first dive, we were quite nervous at first, but Mara was very good at calming us down. We felt safe at all times and Mara also made sure that we have a great experience, showing us interesting... More

Initially I booked three dives with Playa Scuba but, unfortunately, we had to cancel Cozumel due to weather conditions. I ended up doing a bull shark dive and a cenote dive. Both were amazing! My first dive was the bull shark dive - it was basically the main purpose of my trip to Mexico. When I arrived at the shop... More

If you're looking for the opportunity to dive in Playa del Carmen, look no further than Playa Scuba. They took a trio of highly disorganised and desperate Aussies, looking to dive out on the reef, and managed to squeeze us onto the Mama Viña wreck dive just before the boat was set to head out. For $490, we were taken... More

I spent four days diving with Playa Scuba and got the 3-day dive package at USD$240 and also a day with the bull sharks. All the instructors - Nicky, Klaus, Pierre, and Mara, are very professional and ensured the safety of the group at all times. Lunch was provided for the dive trips to Cozumel and the cenotes.

Every time we are in the area for diving we use Playa Scuba. The owner, Klaus, is a great guy. The dive instructors are knowledgeable and relaxed. We always come in the winter months for the Bull Sharks and now the Cenotes. If you are going to book a trip with them, I would suggest one of these selections or... More
