Having dived with Scubacaribe twice before I knew what to expect, they are always very professional and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I did miss my daily trip on the Jet-Ski from the Playacar to the Turquessa, which use to be the case two years ago, so now you have to walk a whole few minutes along one... More

We had originally planned to do our dolphin experience at Xcaret because we thought as it was my sisters birthday we would have plenty to do and make a day of it. However it is very expensive and then we got chatting to Ricardo. Ricardo works at scubacaribe at the stand in Riu palace Mexico and he is so friendly... More

On this vacation to Playa del Carmen, I wasn't sure if I was going to have time to scuba dive, but a day in my busy week opened up and I signed up to scuba dive with Scuba Caribe. Scuba Caribe is located within the premise of RIU Palace, Riviera Maya Hotel. The cost wasn't bad. It was $150 for... More

My two sons and myself undertook the scuba experience. We were safely and courteously looked after. I would highly recommend the team at the centre for your first experience of scuba.

Staying in the Riu Palace Mexico with my husband Gary. Decided to do the royal swim with dolphins. The trip included an hour and half on a catamaran with drinks included. We sailed out and stopped for snorkelling and swimming in the beautiful Caribbean sea. We then had an hour with two dolphins (an experience of a lifetime) and half... More

We bought the excursion from the stand at Riu Playacar. The guy told me the price for all day was $250. The next day he said, Miss, come here. I can give you a better price today. Yesterday was bad weather so I gave you a bad price. So today it is good weather and I will give you a... More

Good afternoon, Thank you very much for your comment. Regarding the tour to Punta Venado, we do offer different packages with different prices. Nonetheless, we only sell a few of all the packages options they actually have at the park, in order to not confuse the clients. We believe it was a miscommunication problem that created this situation and maybe... More

Great snorkeling- we had a private boat and they took us directly to the reef. We saw a huge sting ray, tangs, puffers, starfish and lots of other beautiful fish.

We booked with Cecilios and George at Scuabcaribe in the Riu Tequila Hotel. They were really helpful and the trips we went on were much cheaper than the prices charged by Thomson. We went on the Catamaran day out to Isla de Murjeres and also on the Boca De Puma Adventure day out. Really well organised and very good value... More
