Dive Shop Mexico is simply outstanding. This is my third trip in Playa in which I dived with Dive Shop Mexico, and all three have been outstanding. This year was my first to dive the cenotes, and it was amazing. Peter was great, and I would definitely recommend the Dive Shop if you are in Playa.

If you are going to scuba dive in PDC, I highly recommend Dive Shop Mexico. From day one we had a superb service and friendly response from Natalia who organized the days to fit our needs, fully flexible and good dives. We (family of three) had an excellent dive master who took very good care of us. We dove 2... More

We choose to dive with DSM because all of the positive reviews and good prices, but we found them to be average. They were friendly and responsive to our e-mails before we got to Mexico. We did 2 two tank dives with them in Playa, and they arranged our whale shark snorkeling trip and our dives in Playa and Cozumel.... More

Dive Shop Mexico was the first place I called when arriving in Playa and within 5 minutes I was booked to start my Open Water Certification the next day. The entire team was encouraging and positive-but also made sure I had all my skills perfected before my first dives. Natalia's energy is contagious, and Machete was a great teacher and... More

I looked online for a dive shop in Playa Del Carmen, and after a detailed search and reading many reviews I decided to contact DSM. Natalia, owner/operator, was quick to respond to my inquiry and I scheduled the Riviera Maya Package. This included 4 ocean dives as well as 2 Cenotes dives. Upon meeting Natalia I knew I had had...

I booked a 3 day package with Dive shop Mexico. The staff are friendly and eager to provide you with good diving. I did some online research before I went and they are probably the cheapest operator in the area. I took my own gear so I can't vouch for the hire equipment they provide. The first cenotes dives were... More

We scheduled for the advanced open water course well advanced in US. did the knowledge review prior to the trip. the reason that we chose this diving center was - bc it is cheap! 300$ flat fee to cover all 6 dives in 3 days with course certification and only this dive shop offers cenote diving in the course. staffs...

I just recently visited Playa Del Carmen and Dive Shop Mexico. Before I left from the States, I schedule my PADI Open Water referral dive with Dive Shop Mexico. Natalia was very quick to respond to my emails and was very accommodating with my schedule. She is such a sweetheart. The DM and Instructor was very informative with his briefing.... More

Love the place, it felt welcoming and the staff is extremely friendly. Me and my girlfriend did one day of cenotes and one day in Tortugas. Both dives were more than we expected, you can't miss cenotes if you come to Yucatan, but Tortugas was impressive. We counted 13 turtles .The DM Andrea was great. Nice briefing before every dive,...

We did 2 days of diving (cenotes and reef) with D.S.M. and would highly recommend this dive shop to others. The dive master was very professional and safety oriented. I am a relatively new diver, and I felt very comfortable. The briefing before each dive was very well done, and during the dive we were very well attended to. We... More
