The Viceroy introduced us to Joshua and we were very lucky. Joshua listened to what we were interested in doing and took us to some fantastic cenotes to do some snorkeling (as we are not scuba certified). We had a blast, and he really was a fantastic and educated guide. We had such a great time we asked Joshua take... More

WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! Joshua was a wonderful instructor and tour guide. For a first-timer, he certainly made the experience enjoyable and took any "fear" right out of it. Definitely recommend DiveXplor. Thank you, Joshua!

His knowledge both above and underwater was fantastic and we would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to book a dive or tour in playa in the future. We ended our first... More

We had an awesome time! Joshua was a great guide. Very friendly, knowledgable and professional. We swam with turtles, fish and stingray! Our favorite part was seeing the coral reef up close. We highly recommend taking one of these tours.

We did scuba diving, swimming with turtles and snorkeling in a beautiful private Cenote. I appreciated the private tour, very good organization of things and of course the experience itself. Highly recommended.

It had been 20 years since my last dive. Our dive master, Joshua, first took us to a quiet cinote to review evrything and get us comfortable. He was patient and professional and made the whole experience such a pleasure. We then went for two separate open water dives that we're wonderful, and then snorkeling with the sea turtles -...

Had Joshua Moreno serve as our afternoon tour guide to an archaeological site, and also took us snorkeling through several Senotes. Would definately recommend him as your guide for anything you'd like to see/do if you're staying in the Playa del Carmen area.
