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

We booked a dive with bull sharks with divemex with the expectation that they were professionals due to the higher price of the dive compared to their competing companies. When booking the dive we were told that everything was included, however we were told by the dive master after we had paid the initial price that we needed a dive... More

Hands down the single worst diving experience in my 20 years of diving. I will list the issues: 1. The dive had terrible visibility, less than 9 metres, which is no fault of the dive shop – I do not recommend diving in the area. 2. The boat could not find the dive site and floated around looking for it... More

Dear els007, Thanks for joining our local diving trip. Your comments clearly distinguish themselves, as we are not accustomed to disappoint our guests. We regret to hear that the day did not meet your expectations mainly based on the sea conditions not being as favourable as usual for this destination.

Excellent Dive Shop and very good instructors! We did our OWD with DIVEMEX and we were very happy! The whole team, beginning with the girls in the shop up to the instructors, and even the owners are all very friendly and make you feel welcome! (among friends) Very capable instructors in 3 languages!

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.
