My wife and I had a great time with the team diving in Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel reefs. I have to admit that Cozumel is a much better spot and something you should not miss.

Sergio noticed that I was getting cold towards the end of our first dive, even though the water was 86°F, it gets chiily being in the water almost an hour. Sergio gave me his... More

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.
