DiveMex is a small dive center in downtown Playa del Carmen close to the public bus station, the ferry and the public transport station for tulum and cancun. Diving with us is so much more than just get dressed, jump into the water and dive. The personal experience of every diver is very important to us and that's why we only dive in small groups up to 4 divers. Safe diving, no rushing and personal service guaranteed.You will get the best diving experience possible, regardless if you are at the beggining of your diving career or already an advanced diver

My daughter and I scheduled a whale shark trip with DiveMex for Friday, June 3 2016. The night before our excursion, DiveMex sent our security to advise us that due to the weather/seas that we should cancel. When seeing the seas the following day, DiveMex made the right call. I can't thank them enough. They could have taken our money... More

I contacted divemex and arranged everything before I left England. When we got to the dive centre they were expecting us and a guide and transport was laid on and waiting. The equipment was in good condition and we dived every cenote that we requested. What more could we ask.

Diving and learning diving at DiveMex was amazing. Summarized: friendly staff, small groups, good equipment, professional, excellent teaching. I planned to “only” do my Open Water Diver during my one week holiday in Playa Del Carmen and it was so much fun that I continued and also did my Advanced Open Water and Nitrox. I did the course in German... More

We have come to Divemex through TA and did not get disappointed. Dirk is truly professional and really teaches you how to dive independent on you diving certification level. Especially, he is truly passionate about cave diving! With regards to diving at Conzumel, they partner with a dive center on the island which is a bit less convenient. However, the... More

I did the open water certification course with two instructors at Divemex, Anna Colombo and Marcel Taubert. They did their best to expedite my training, as I did not have much time in Playa del Carmen. They took the time to answer to all my questions, and explain the material to me thoroughly. I was the only student in the... More

They have very big selection of places to dive in ocean and in cenotes. Very pleasant and laid back dives in small groups with professional and courteous stuff. Good location and easy to find being only a few minutes walk from ferry/bus terminal.
