I love Laura and Tavo!!! I went diving with both of them, first in open water outside Cozumel and then in some cenotes. These guys are truly passionate about diving, safety, aquatic life and taking care of our planet. They know so much about diving and the sights, where is good and when to go. They know the locals because they lived here for many years and they can also provide good advice for traveling Mexico.

About scuba diving they also provide good advice for your technique and they don’t push to sell any courses or trips or other stuff. They’re flexible and able to get you the equipment you need. I also had my friend with us in the cenotes so she could snorkel or swim which was a good experience for us.

They speak perfect English, Spanish and German and are truly warm, welcoming and helpful people. I’m DEFINITELY coming back for more diving with them!!! 100 stars from me!

If your in to scuba diving and are looking for a reputable and safe operator I would highly recommend contacting darksidediversmx. The prices are fair but the service is world class. They can provide transportation, guided tours of cenotes and open water. Whether you are open water certified or full cave certified they will deliver the best possible experience to ensure you are happy and safe. Tavo and Laura go above and beyond when it comes to service, if you decide to book multi day dives they would be happy to rinse your equipment for you and everything will be waiting for your next dive day. This alone puts them in a category not seen in Mexico. They also will get you to cozumel and back on a 2 tank dive before most other operators have even gotten into the water. They are truly a hidden gem of playa del carmen scuba diving but the secret wont last long.
