Me an my girlfriend Aleksandra did our OWD course at Dive Shop Mexico following e-learning theoretical part of the course. The staff were very accommodating and arranged the confined and open water dives to meet our tight schedule, but at the same time our great instructor Ruben made sure we felt comfortable and only moved on when we learnt the...

Went down to the dive shop as a referral course student. From the calls to arrange the open water qualification dives to the dives themselves...couldn't have had a more relaxing yet totally professional experience. Felt more like old friends than a customer. If your looking for a personal experience I highly recommend this shop!

My mate and I were searching for a dive company in Playa Del Carmen and stumbled across Dive Shop Mexico as it was located handy to our accommodation. We luckily squeezed in 2 cenote dives after booking in only the day before. We found Ruben to be a awesome and very interesting guide. The dives themselves (the pit and dos... More

We are a family of four with different levels of experience including one of us needing to complete the open water dives to become certified and one who really needed a refresher course. Natalia put together a great package for us that met all our needs and allowed us to dive as a family! Ruben was an awesome instructor in... More

My wife and I were vacationing in Playa del Carmen and were looking forward to experiencing the great diving Riviera Maya had to offer. While there many dive shops to choose from, I decided Dive Shop Mexico would be the best fit for us. They not only stress small group dives, but most importantly safety first. And since my wife's...

Started SCUBA diving and came to this shop and had the best experience. The staff gave me an excellent time and made sure the dives to the reefs and the cenotes were safe and very enjoyable. I would suggest that anyone visiting Playa Del Carmen try this shop and try their diving experience. they made me feel like family.

This was my first open water dive experience and DSM made it a great one! The staff is both very fun and professional. They are very knowledgable in what they do and explained everything that would happen during the dive making it an extremely comfortable environment. I will definitely recommend this place to both friends and family. Thanks DSM!

Before diving with Dive Shop Mexico, I only had the four dives necessary to complete my Open Water Certificate. Since that was seven years ago, I participated in a refresh course before going in the ocean. The staff spoke good English and was very customer oriented. The instructor, Ruben, was very friendly and was open to answer any questions that... More

My friend and I went diving yesterday with the dive shop. Neither of us had dived before. Natalia booked everything for us and was really efficient and friendly. We had a great captain who took us to the reefs. Andrea was our instructor and was excellent. She explained everything really well and had a lovely calm manner that made us... More

Great experience overall. The staff very friendly and accommodating, their prices were very reasonable (we paid around $85.00 USD per person for 2 dives in the ocean), which included a great beginner lesson in the poor behind the shop. The guide was knowledgeable and spoke great english, and they went out of their way to ensure we had a good... More
