I used this company on site at Riu Playacar to book two reef dives, Cenotes dive and a full day excursion. The first reef dive and the cenotes dive I did by myself, my 24year old son went on the second reef dive with me and my 19 year old son joined the two of us for the excursion. All the dive staff and the sales guy at the dive shack were fantastic. Since we had limited time, I ended up doing the same reef two days in a row. That was a bit disappointing since Playa del Carmen doesn’t compare to the reefs at Cozumel where I dive last year, but it was great for my son who is a real beginner and got me in practice for the cenotes. The reef dives were the only reason I took off one star because they were well done, but just not that exciting.

Cenotes scuba diving was a truly mystical experience. We went with only three divers plus the dive master and it was amazing. We went through great caverns and came up in a couple of open cathedral type caves where we were the only ones there. I highly recommend doing the cenotes dive if you have some experience because it was so unique. Scubacaribe limits the number of divers and it was very personal and safe.

The other real highlight of our trip was the all day excursion. First, we took a van from the hotel to Tulum and got an archeological tour. It was very interesting and I think we had a glimpse into Mayan life. Then, we took a short ride to a shallow reef and took a boat out for snorkeling. We saw great schools of fish and several sea turtles. Really fun! Next we had a traditional Mexican lunch that was at a place where you could order any kind of taco. It was very delicious! My football player son ate six tacos. Then we went to the cenotes where we had a Mayan shaman ceremony. After that we went swimming in a couple of the cenotes that were quite beautiful. Finally we did three different zip lines over the jungle. We loved every minute of our day! Our tour guide, Carlos, made it extremely memorable. If you have teens or older this is a must-do excursion.

I would recommend ScubaCaribe for their personal service and the location right at the hotel. Next time I’d probably book the dive trip to Cozumel in advance.
