I have been Diving with this particular shop several times over the last few years. Recently the shop was bought out by new owners, and let me say, I am impressed! I was diving there During the height of Covid 19, between August 15th and the 29th in 2020. Julia, the new shop owner, worked extremely hard to set me up with exactly what I needed, and we had a very diverse group. I went diving with my Son who is only 11 years old and is a Junior open water certified diver. I was very concerned about having a shallow dive that was very easy for my son as he only has about 16 dives total and needed some confidence builders. Luis was the dive master and he paid extremely close attention to my son and even gave him an on the spot safety review. we requested and had the boat all to ourselves. We didn't have to worry about any other divers wanting to go deeper, faster, etc... we got EXACTLY what we wanted. We had a couple days of that and even did a jungle dive in an open cenote which is all children are allowed. Finally, I am a rescue diver with 160 dives and my buddy came with us who is also very experienced. For the back half of the 2 weeks, we did several Cenote cavern dives with dive master Davida. he was fantastic, a great sense of humor, and extremely knowledgeable. once again Julia custom tailored the entire trip for us. We got to see some things that people usually don't get to see, and because it was during covid, we had nearly every site to ourselves.

I booked some divings with this agency and in the end could not travel due to the pandemic situation. The communication with them for cancellation was excellent and transparent. They really seem to be serious on their business. Looking forward to retake my plans to Mexico soon and dive with them.

I emailed the shop ahead of time to set up three days of diving. Erik and Julia answered my questions via email and arranged the first day diving at Playa del Carmen, the second day in Cozumel, and the third at Cenote Dos Ojos. The guides for each of the dives were great and knew the areas well. Most of the other dive shops have you get to Cozumel by ferry, but Dive Shop Mexico had a boar that went directly, which is much better. They also had Nitrox for me to use and their equipment was great.

Erik and Julia are awesome. We had such fun time with them. Myself and 2 other friends went diving with Dive Shop Mexico for 3 days in Feb 2020 and the experience was amazing. Myself and one of my friends did our open water course with Instructor Billy and Instructor Roma. Billy and Roma are top class and very patient. We had a lot of fun in the pool and the ocean with these guys. A divers safety and well being is a top priority here which is very comforting especially for novice divers. Our other friend was training for his advanced diver cert and Erik was his instructor. Our friend had nothing but great things to say about Erik and he really enjoyed his dives with him. Especially in the cenote!! If anyone is thinking about heading to Playa and looking to dive-these guys are for you!! Erik and Julia also gave us great local travel tips such which centoes to visit and which restaurants to try out. I will be 100% coming back and diving with Dice Shop Mexico again !!!

Excellent in every way - professional, friendly, attentive - owners and guides. Dove 2 days in the Cenotes and one day on the Cozumel reef. Able to take the dive boat right from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. Was able to dive one-on-one with my guide in the Cenotes. They also had a wonderful car service (family owned) to get me back and forth from the resort. And they fixed a leaking air hose for me (my equipment). My next trip to the Cenotes I will be right back with Dive Shop Mexico.
