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

My family and I were in a hotel near playa del Carmen and didn't want to dive with our hotel due to inflated prices. Stumbled upon Dive Shop, emailed them and confirmed the reservation. 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

The van was on time and the ride north went smoothly. When we arrived we I had some problems with my... More

We have just finished two days' diving with dive shop Mexico and I can't recommend them enough! We chose them because of their reviews, mainly people saying how friendly they are and how it is small groups which is what we always prefer. Natalia was very friendly and explained all our options and we decided just to do two days... More

We've just finished two days diving here...brilliant service all round. From start to finish our needs were discussed and dives planned to fit around what we wanted to do. Natalia was accommodating and helpful, and Peter (our dive master) was great. For a small operation the service is outstanding...its a short walk to the boat with your kit (but not... More

Everybody was very friendly and it was a great dive. I was a new diver and they made me feel at ease in all parts of the dive. The prices were great and no hidden costs. I had a great experience with Dive Shop and would recommend it to everyone. Looking forward to going back and diving with them again.... More

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.
