Natalia ( owner of shop) very personal and only wants you to enjoy and have a great experience. She is a wonderful person and makes sure you get the type of dive you're looking for. We went on the Bull shark dive and it was spectacular!!! Her dive masters make you feel at ease and are very knowledgeable.

When I went to Playa looking to book a dive, Natalia greeted me with a smile and her demeanor put me at ease. She worked me in as soon as possible since I needed a refresher. The price, top-notch service and competent dive masters (Machete & Katya) were amazing. I felt like I was at home in her shop. I... More

The staff (Natalia, Machete and Katya) are so friendly and takes good care of you. I wouldn´t hesitate to go with them again if I... More

My 10 yr old just earned his Jr OW certification here. I did 4 dives as well. Everyone is so nice and professional. It is rare to see a place that really cares about the people more than just making money. I would recommend them for any of the diving they do. You are sure to have a safe and... More

This was one of the most amazing dives I've ever been on. Natalia runs a tight ship but is so friendly. She worked me in at the last minute. We had two dive master's Netto and Katya, I knew I was in great hands!
