My partner and I happened upon the place and had a great experience. Our refresher course and dives were set up right away, we were provided equipment, and our instructor, Steve, was patient and knowledgeable. We had a great time and re-learned a lot! (Plus the sea turtles and sting rays and sea horses and all weren't too shabby.)

My two teenage daughters and I spent 5 amazing days of diving with Scuba Tribe with a total of 10 dives. We dove 2 days in Playa del Carmen, 1 day in Chac-Mool and Kukulkan cenotes, 1 day at Dos Ojos cenote, and 1 day at Cozumel. We had amazing time with all professionals associated with Scuba Tribe. Hector, Steve,... More

My round-the-world trip was starting to wind down, but I had a few months left to kill. I decided to spend a month in Playa Del Carmen for some diving. After... More

I've dove with a lot of groups in Playa and Cancun, and I only dive with Hector and his people at Scuba Tribe now. He's extremely knowledgeable about all of the dive sites in Playa, and knows all of the cenotes inside and out.
