Hats off to Dive Shop Mexico and the whole staff for making our Playa del Carmen, MX. dive trip a success.....AGAIN. This is a family owned/run business that gives very professional and personal attention to their customers. Best of all, you FEEL like a member of the Dive Shop Mexico family from dive one! We also had a friend with us who completed his open water training with Dive Shop Mexico and is now looking forward to more trips south. The rates are absolutely affordable.....need rental equipment? Everything from mask to flashlights for cenote diving AND in great condition! So thanks very much, Manuel, Natalia, Sylvia, Andrea and all at Dive Shop Mexico!! They are located just off 5th Ave on 20th St, and very convenient to many hotels in the area.

What can I say but he knows what he's doing for sure. My wife and I dove with Toro and he was one of the most knowledgeable divemasters we ever dove with. He knew all the fish and places to see them. He kept the group together and the dive smooth. We loved diving with him and will dive again with him for sure. The nicest divemaster period!

Did several wonderful dives with Dive Shop Mexico, but the highlight of my diving was at the Chac Mool and Kukulkan cenotes.

Having never experienced cave diving I felt very comfortable diving with Andrea, our dive master. She gave a detailed and informative briefing before our dives, which was most helpful and gave us a signal when we were entering the halocline. I've experienced thermoclines diving in fresh water, but the halocline is very different and I truly appreciated her "heads up."

Additionally we booked a snorkeling trip with whale sharks through Dive Shop Mexico, which was an experience of a lifetime!

Just returned from Playa and had chosen Dive Shop Mexico based on all the good reviews. There's a reason they get so many - wonderful staff. We arrived when it had been raining/storming and unfortunately missed a day diving - but were happy the shop takes safety first and said conditions weren't good to go out - we appreciated that. They were very flexible with our schedule of the 3 days of diving and we worked it out so we got to do the cenotes dive in great weather (sunny which makes it better). We liked the dive masters and got to go out with Andrea for both an ocean dive (saw lots of cool things) and then the cenotes. She was very safety conscious always checking on the divers and yet was able to point out many things. We wanted to add on snorkeling with the whale sharks and Enrique, Sybil and Natalia kept on top of the conditions with the boat captain (as for several days the whale sharks weren't "out to play") and luckily we got the call they were being seen - so we were able to do that on our last full day in Playa (that was a magical experience). All in all everyone was super so I highly recommend them if you're headed to Playa to dive. Thanks Dive Shop Mexico!

... maybe there are bigger diveshops, huge places plenty of brighty equipment.... but after diving around the world you know that "a family" diveshop with the best professionals is the best election when spending your money and getting the best value and reliable advices if you wanna enjoy of a dive spot...

... for new learners who wanna a real personal treatment and don't wanna feel in a new divers factory, choose Manuel and Natalia diveshop and enjoy of divemasters like Eva .. specialists of Cenote's caverns and caves ..

..
