I have contacted Cancun Scuba Center because of the reviews I read online while looking for a alternative dive center to dive in Cancun as my contact was in Playa del Carmen. So it was a bit short notice and we had not much time as our stay in Cancun was only 4 days. Juan Carlos was very quick in... More

This is a small, very personal operation, and they really treated us well. A very special thanks to my instructor, Laura. I called her the Tomb Raider. She was so thorough in her instruction that even a caveman could understand. I'm not a very strong swimmer, but the training was world class. Great time!

This was our second year to dive in Cancun with our two college aged sons and while we did research a couple of other dive operations, it was an easy decision to return to Cancun Scuba Center and our friend Juan Carlos. As before, Juan Carlos is safety conscious and accommodating--always willing to listen to our requests--we prefer to see... More

Let me just say that Mexican people are the best, always smiling, and in good mood!!! Unfortunately, it wasn't the case when we chose Cancun Scuba Center as our diving center. Juan Carlos was our instructor, and he was anything but smiling. I pretty much can say he ruined the fun of diving in Cancun. Clearly, he wasn't friendly or... More

We have used this company for several years in a row and have always had a great experience. Juan Carlos and his crew are always diligent about safety and make sure everyone has a fantastic experience.

I completed my open water PADI certification with Oswaldo in early July. Juan Carlos set everything up and was very responsive. Oswaldo was a patient instructor. Everything was well-organized and the four dives were a lot of fun.

I was in contact with a gentleman names Juan Carlos. I had very little time in cancun but did the most of it. The first was the diving experience at the underwater Musuem and then followed by the snorkeling at the reef. The water was pretty rough but my instructor/ diver ( pet name zorro) was honestly amazing, had things... More

The Cancun Scuba Center is a very professional diving center which is able to offer great fun dives. The equipment was in great shape and the diving team was very experienced and professional. Juan Carlos was able to show us the best spots and he took pictures of us while diving which he shared with us after the dive free... More

My father, sister, and I are first time scuba divers and we are extremely glad that we decided to pursue Cancun Scuba Center! Juan Carlos was very communicative throughout the booking process and very fast on responding to my emails. They also have texting and calling as modes of communication, but since we are from Los Angeles, emailing was the... More

We chose this place becasue it was well reviews on TripAdvisor. I called the number on the site and spoke with a dive master who was very helpful in explaining the tours, and placing our name on the list. We did the Whale Shark snorkel experience. Shuttle picked us up as promised, picked up two more couples and took us... More
