We were in Playa last week and chose to dive again with Pluto Dive. Five years ago we had taken our Open Water PADI certification course with Alberto and it went very well. Alberto was gone but Barbara was our Divemaster on a two tank dive day and it went very well. We really appreciated that since we had gone... More

After diving with Barbara at Pluto Dive 4 years ago, it was an easy decision to return here when we took another trip to Mexico. This time I came with a friend who had gotten her PADI OW certification over a year ago, but had never been diving in the ocean. It had also been a little over a year... More

my buddy and I came back after some wonderful diving in 2011 and we had another fantastic experience. This time our diveguide was Andrea and we dove 6 different cenotes with Pluto dive. It was a perfect experience and we are looking forward to the next time. Alex and Andy

I traveled with my father-in-law and 10-year old son. My father-in-law was a newly certified diver and I was planning to have my son participate in an intro-to-diving course. Barbara at Pluto Dive made sure the experience for all of us was great! She assisted my father-in-law in pursuing his Advanced Certification and my son loved the experience and can't... More

My friend and I were amazed by how many dive shops there are in Playa del Carmen! We found many on TripAdvisor and were so glad we chose Pluto Dive. It had a nice store front with equipment to try on (wetsuits, fins, etc.) so you were assured of a comfortable fit. Barbara answered all my questions (and there were... More

From beginning to end, my experience with Barbara at Pluto Dive was top notch. She quickly responded to my initial email inquiry regarding three days of diving in and around Playa (ocean, cenote & Cozumel). When I mentioned that it had been a year since my husband last dove, she was accommodating and set-up a dive schedule that included a... More

This dive shop is great! Thank you to Barbara for a wonderful and safe diving experience on all 4 dives. All the equipment is newer and in great shape. Everything was well organized and as smooth as any dive I've been on. A side note: my dive buddy is newer to diving and it was over 12 months since her... More
