I dived in Dos Ojos cenote (beginner cenotes) for the first time with my boyfriend in January over MLK weekend holiday. Since we were on budget, and there were so many dive centers around playa, we wanted to get the best deal. Then, we found playa and never regret picking this dive center. Our guide was late but we don't... More

My 15 year old son Niko and I dove with Nicky for two days in late July. We really enjoyed our experience. Nicki was very professional and confident while working with my son to complete his open water check-out dives. We had an amazing experience diving the local reefs right along Playa Del Carmen. Our last dives at Cueva del... More

Did the "discover diving" with my daughter and Sonny did a great job with both of us. Got to dive two great spots. I forgot to bring cash and Klaus was nice enough to to drive us back to our hotel. Would definitely recommend Playa Scuba for first time divers.

From our initial contact with Carol (prompt and very friendly) to Vicky (our guide the first day), and then the coordination with the dive shop in Cozumel (and our guide Manuel), they were awesome! Vicky was so helpful in getting us re-acclimated to diving as it had been a year since we dove (beyond the normal pre-dive planning). The equipment... More
