When i go to Mexico it is usually to dive and the guys at Scubra Libre are the best. I am a night diver and Samuel's night dives are awesome. Laid back and enjoyable for experienced and novice diver alike. i would recommend that anyone going to Playa dive with them.

I just got back from a week diving in playa and loved every minute of it. Met a new dive master to me named Gaetan. He was very professional doing the drive briefs in both french and English. Learned my diving style quickly and let me have a lot of fun. Thanks for the awesome dives!!

Scuba Libre is an amazing group of divers and guides; they gave us outstanding customer service through the booking process and our dive master was incredibly knowledgable during the dive. We booked a cenote tour that was simply out of this world! This was booked for an anniversary vacation by 2 US recreational divers. The gear we rented was in... More
