We spent 6 days scubadiving with Playa Diving Center both in cenotes and sea (Playa reef and Cozumel). They planned everything we wanted, including transfers and visits to archaeological sites after dives. The divemasters are outstanding, experienced and reliable cave divers that made every dive safe and fun. We were able to explore the most amazing and astonishing cenotes in... More

I had a fantastic time diving with them for my first cenote dives. They were very accommodating with my schedule. My guide, Alex, was fantastic. He explained everything very well and the whole experience felt very safe. I am definitely going to book more trips with them when I come back, highly recommended.

My wife was a little nervous but our awesome guide Alexandro thoroughly talked us through what we would expect to see and experience and put our minds at ease before we even got to the site. As the site was... More

I don't know where to begin in describing the extraordinary diving trip I just took with Playa Diving Center (PDC)...I'll start with my conclusion: Anyone considering booking a diving trip, no matter what your experience or expertise, would be very well served (to say the least!) to visit Riviera Maya and choose a diving package with Playa Diving Center...You will...

No regrets whatsoever if you choose PDC and its staff. I did my Cave Course with them and just had amazing dives and met really nice people there. Vicente, Juanma, Rob and Emilio will take care of you whether you choose to dive in the beautiful reefs there or enjoy the pristine waters of Cenotes and their caves. Hope to... More
