Thanks everyone for the information. There was a group from Chicago doing it in Ixtapa the year we were there and my husband has always remembered how much fun it looked.

Just because I am a loudmouth, and FWIW, I'll pipe up and say those prices sound similar to what we paid for tandem sky dives on the east coast USA last October.

Experience of a lifetime, seriously.

My sons did a tandem jump in Colorado over the 4th and said it was the trill of a lifetime. They paid $100 less and their video was about half the price, but I doubt that will stop my group.

jennytollie ... the videos are downright hilarious, aren't they? I feel sorry for the videographer of my jump because he had to tread air for a long time while my tandem diver tried to shove me out the door.

Tandem diver said, "Hands across your chest, go!" So, I put my hands across my chest and immediately pulled them back to hang onto the doorframe. This happened at least three times (all captured on the video). It took so long to get me out of the plane that my husband, who jumped after me, ended up landing on a golf course. Fore! :-)

new-thanks for the personal memories, just what we needed to keep us going until the end of January. We absolutely love Playa del Carmen and can't wait to come back.

Where does the skydive start, south or north of Playa?
