From start to finish it was well organised and very informative. We felt confident and safe at all times. Our guide Marco was excellent and made the day even more... More

Planned ahead to do get my kids (ages 12 and 13) open water certified while at the Riu Palace Riviera in Playa del Carmen. As this was a resort course, my expectations were low that we would receive great individual service. Boy, was I wrong! Scuba Caribe was simply outstanding accomodating our schedules and ensuring that we got all necessary... More
