Experience the fantastic underwater world of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. DiveMex, the international diving center in Playa del Carmen.

International diving center in Playa del Carmen

DiveMex is an international diving center in Playa del Carmen since 2007. We are a professional PADI diving school and SSI Instructor Training Center. Small, personal and certainly not a diving center like any other. You will notice that immediately when you visit us. We dive daily in small groups in Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and the cenotes. The whole atmosphere is different, cozy and personal. Just “diving with friends”.

5 important points why you want to dive with DiveMex:

  1. Safety is very important (your safety comes first !!!).
  2. Personal and individual service (we only dive in small groups and are happy to give you tips).
  3. Professionalism and competence (our training is recognized and complies with the standards of PADI, SSI, IANTD and SDI / TDI).
  4. We are a real diving center (no diving instructor who works from home and pretends to be a diving school).
  5. Our professional team (your contacts work permanently for the diving school and are not freelancers).

DiveMex - International diving center in Playa del Carmen

We dive in small groups of mostly 2-3 divers plus a guide. Accordingly, we group experienced divers in one group and not so experienced divers in another group. We usually do diving courses one-to-one or two-to-one. Therefore we achieve the optimal learning success for all diving students. We train according to the standards of various well-known diving associations. For example, you can complete the SSI, PADI, IANTD and SDI/TDI diving training with us. All of our training associations are recognized worldwide and consequently you will find the right course for you with us.

About us DiveMex: "More than just diving with friends"

It is important to us that everyone takes the maximum diving experience home with them. Everyone dives within the scope of their possibilities and training. Dives of 60 minutes and more are therefore more the rule than the exception for us.

Every dive was great fun and very, very beautiful in its own way. Both Dirk and Hannah took a lot of time, explained the individual dives and also had fun along the way.
Vera and I mastered the best cave diving training we could have wished for with Dirk. Dirk prepared us well for all possible scenarios. His teaching methods were always memorable and effective. In addition to the entire DiveMex team, special thanks go to Hanna, who, as an instructor, also supported and accompanied us very patiently and competently during the course.
With a lot of sadness in my heart I left Hanna, Dirk and their team on November 21st, 2019, but unfortunately our flight back to Germany left one day later. Our conclusion, DiveMex can't get rid of us! We will be back! I haven't felt as comfortable as I did in this base for a long time! Equipment, safety, organization were just TOP!

Diving with bull sharks

We hear about thrills, breathtaking, unique experiences, spectacular experiences and much more after diving with the bull sharks.

Every year between December and February these fantastic sea hunters come to us in Playa del Carmen. Majestic, elegant, they circle around and give us the opportunity for a special experience.
