We had Matias as our instructor. We cannot thank him enough for the amount of time, the detailed instruction and explanations, and the personal touch he put into each of our lessons. We both felt perfectly comfortable with him. And, when we struggled with a lesson or a dive he was comforting yet persuasive to keep us going forward because he knew we could do it (not overbearing or demanding). We could not think of a better person to teach and lead us to getting our Open Water Certification. We hope to see Matt and MBD soon on a future trip.

Mexico Blue Dream offers a perfect service, well mainained and safe equipment, a nice equipped shop, very good diving boats and really friendly staff with always good mood. Really recommendable. With Mamitas Beach also at a very perfect location. Could not mention something that could be improved.

Mexico Blue Dream is a fantastic little dive shop located very near the beach in Playa Del Carmen. The owner, Patrice, is very personable as well as everyone at the shop. I dove specifically with them to experience Bull Shark diving without a cage, and I absolutely loved it!! (I have dove with Tiger Sharks the previous December in the Bahamas). It's surreal to be in the water with these apex predators, yet at no time did we feel we were in danger. Prior to departing for the site our Divemaster briefed us on how the dive would proceed, the swimming formation, and a very informative lesson on understanding shark behavior and body language. I highly recommend this shop and team of divers, and I can't wait to go back and dive with them again.

My teen son got his Junior PADI certification from Mexico Blue Dream three years ago and had not had the opportunity to dive again until last week while we were on vacation in Playa del Carmen. The owner, Patrice, remembered our son and when I called the day before to sign him up for a dive, he made sure he was in capable hands. The dive guides, Mick and Tamara, were fantastic and professional. My son was a little worried because it had been so long since he had done a dive, but he took a refresher course online and he also ran through everything with the guides before the boat arrived in the morning, so he felt confident and excited. When he came back, he had the hugest smile on his face and the widest eyes because he had gotten to dive with large bull sharks, saw a gigantic old loggerhead turtle, and so much more beautiful sea life like rays, moray eels, schools of fish, corals, etc. Patrice had arranged a photographer, Cecile, to take photos for us and she sent them to us via email. They are phenomenal and will be an amazing keepsake for him to remember this extraordinary dive. From the initial phone call, the friendly staff, the professional and responsible guides, and the photography -- this was the best experience yet! We would wholeheartedly recommend Mexico Blue Dream to anyone looking for exceptional diving and cannot wait until the next time we get to vacation in Playa to visit them again. This was an unbeatable way to ring in 2014! Thanks, Patrice and everyone at MBD!
