Our Advice: Take one day and dive the cenotes - there is nowhere else like it in the world.  These caverns don't have much sea life, but do have amazing formations that you must see.


PLAYA DEL CARMEN SCUBA DIVING
FAQ's

Q: WHAT IS THE WATER TEMPERATURE IN PLAYA DEL CARMEN?
A: The water temperature is normally between 86F (30C) in the summer and 78F (26C) in the winter.  In the summer you probably won't even want to bother with a wetsuit.  In the winter, a 3mm suit might be warranted.  The temperature in the cenotes is normally about 74F (24C) to 77F (26C), so we do recommend a 3mm full wetsuit for cenote dives.

Q: WHAT WILL THE VISIBILITY BE LIKE?
A: While of course, conditions vary day to day and from site to site, on the average, visibility is between 60 feet and 90 feet (20 to 30 meters) on the reefs, and virtually unlimited in the cenotes.

Q: DO I NEED TO BE CERTIFIED TO GO SCUBA DIVING?
A: If you are not certified, then you will need to take the Discover Scuba Diving course, which will entitle you to dive with a divemaster on this trip only for depths of up to 30 feet.  However, it will not certify you to dive in Cozumel, in the Cenotes, or at night - you'll need to be certified to do those type of dives.  Get Certified in Playa del Carmen!

Q: DO I NEED TO BE CERTIFIED AS A CAVE DIVER FOR THE CENOTES?
A: No.  Your divemaster is cave certified - you only need to have open water certification.  These are caverns, rather than caves.

Q: ARE THERE STRONG CURRENTS?
A: Most dives in Playa del Carmen are drift dives, which means you can just relax and float with the current, watching the underwater world go by.  When you're ready to surface, the boat will be there to meet you - no  swimming against the current necessary.

Q: HOW MANY DIVERS DO YOU TAKE AT A TIME?  CATTLE BOATS MAKE ME CRINGE.
A: We go out with a maximum of 5 divers per boat.  No cattle boats here, just personal, uncrowded, and enjoyable dives.
