Whilst trying to avoid expensive and marketed hotel diving school, one of our party stumbled upon this shop - a real find! From his first visit to the end of our day's diving, it was a pleasure doing business with this very friendly and professional company. There was no hard sell, it was very reasonably priced and we felt we... More

Me and my boyfriend took OWD course and 4 extra dives here (2 in the sea and 2 in cenotes) in November 2014. We've seen lots of fish, moray eels, shark, turtles and rays - everything I was dreaming about. Besides, when you come to this Dive Shop, all employees recognize you and remember your name! You feel here just... More

Dive Shop Mexico has to be one of (if not THE) best dive shops in Playa Del Carmen. Would definitely recommend for any dives you’re looking for, especially if you’re interested in completing a PADI course, as we did. Competitive and simple pricing (unlike some that had hidden costs for the course books and equipment). Excellent staff and instructors, all... More

Right from the start, the staff was friendly and helpful. Even though we had experience diving, they still were helpful and hands on. When we went... More

This was my first diving experience and I am glad I chose dive shop Mexico for it. It was really easy communicating with Natalia over emails to confirm the booking. Andrea (our trainer) was very friendly, makes you feel comfortable, gives lot of personal attention while practicing and makes sure you are completely ready for your dive in the sea.... More
