I got into scuba diving earlier this year while in Indonesia. I took my AOW in Thailand, and then went on to do some diving in France and Italy. 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 had the pleasure of diving two of the cenotes with Hector, first class operation! Hector took the time to make sure I understood everything I need to know prior to diving and made me feel very comfortable.

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. I appreciate the fact that he's easygoing while also being very professional and making sure that... More

My coworker recommended the Scuba Tribe/ Snorkel Shop from several previous visits. My wife and I were amazed with the high level of service and the experience the guides offered. Hector did an excellent job helping me set up a dive before our arrival through very clear phone & email conversations. We ended up spending 4 days during our week... More

I'm a fairly new diver. A friend referred me to his shop. He is a great instructor. Him and his team were attentive and very thorough. I dove the Cenote with Hector and a couple of dives with his colleague Steve for my advance open water. Hands down, they were the best instructors that I've had. I felt very safe... More

We booked cenote dives from Deep Blue in Cozumel. Upon arrival in Playa del Carmen, we met up with Hector who was our dive master. Hector has a great personality, very knowledgeable, professional, and keeps safety as a priority. Travel time to the cenotes was minimal. I felt very safe travelling and diving with Hector. The cenotes are gorgeous and... More

The Scuba Tribe is amazing, and Hector is the most friendly and professional owner you can imagine. I took my PADI Open Water there because I had it recommended by my sister who knows Hector, and I couldn't have been happier about my experience. I will definitely recommend The Scuba Tribe to others - but when searching for the street... More

My wife and I dove with Steve, through the Scuba Tribe. We were very pleased. We are not very experienced divers and we felt very safe. Steve chose a few of the best dive locations in Playa and we saw a lot of fish. Highly recommend.

Deep Blue in Cozumel set us up with Scuba Tribe in Playa del Carmen for cenote dives. Hector and Alex picked our family up from the ferry, then took us to the shop to get fitted for gear, etc. Steve and Alex were our guides for the trip, and both were extremely professional and personable.
