This was our second year going diving with Solo Buceo. We have enjoyed all our dives with them and find them a great company to dive with. They use small boats and very small dive groups. My husband and I both dive and have done multiple dives with this operator, we have yet to be in a group of more... More

Karla and Oscar were the perfect guides for our party of 4! The boat was very well stocked with lots of good food, sandwiches and drinks. They took us directly to the shark whales and we stayed in the water with them and the manta rays for an hour. The only unfortunate thing was the gas fumes from having to... More

Very unprofessional, unorganized dive school. Had to come at 09:30 to check in and collect gear. We filled in papers, they never asked for the certification catds. After .5 hour we still made no intention to go to the boat. Once on the boat, far too crowdy, we went somewhere (no idea of the dive site) Only basic instructions were... More

We snorkeled with whale sharks. It was amazing!!! The ride was long and bumpy, but so worth it. These whale sharks are massive and you are literally in the middle of the ocean. Scary, but i felt so safe. I'm not a swimmer so the instructor stayed with me the entire time. He made sure i also got to see... More

We had an incredible experience swimming with the sharks and tonour surprise we were able to get close to a few sting rays. Baby sharks, big sharks tjat look impressive when they're swimming your way with their huge open mouth, good thing whale sharks are harmless and basically toothless, nevertheless it looks intimidating sometimes. We got a chance to jump... More

Where to begin the most positive review I've ever had the pleasure of writing? Diversity - as the title suggests they offer an incredibly diverse selection of experiences. We did the two main wrecks a couple of times at day and at dusk. They do have a couple of favourite reefs that are closest to their resort, and we dove... More

We chose to use this company as it was based next to our hotel- the Hyatt ziva. I had never dived before but my bf was certified. The reception staff were friendly and explained the discover scuba dives appropriate for me and my bf to do together. They also let me know about an equipment trial that morning in the... More

This is an EXCELLENT company to dive with and to take PADI classes for scuba certifications. Their dive instructors and masters are very experienced. They offer a wide range of dives for certified dives and individuals that want to try diving. They also offer snorkeling trips to see Whale Sharks. This is a GREAT trip. Whale Sharks are the largest... More

Went here as part of a pre arranged whale sharks day and Musa / wreck dives. The diving team were good, but the admin was a little unorganised ... Musa is not really worth it according to us... But the whale sharks were amazing. Recommend to go first thing in the am. Taking off at 7 was well worth it

Stop spending money at the super fancy theme parks of Xelha and Xcaret. Though this is a dive shop, they do offer snorkeling tours. There was one "instructor" who jumped into water with us and led us to show some spectacular reef. Mind you, its a little deep water.
