Surpassed my expectations
, Dec 2020
Scuba diving in casa cenote with Pancho the crocodile. If you’re in Playa Del Carmen, Diversland is definitely the place to get certified! The instructors really go above and beyond to ensure your safety and a good time diving. I can’t say enough positive things about them.

Safe, knowledgeable and experienced staff of Dive Masters

I’ve been a certified diver since 1997, but had to get re-certified due to SDI losing all my diving records. I decided to go with PADI this final time. Both Demitre and Patrick were very knowledgeable, safe and experienced Dive Master/Instructors, but also knew the surrounding dive areas very well. Where else can you see Crocodiles and Bull sharks on a check out dive? I had a great time even though I was repeating several skills and practices, but I hadn’t dove in 3 years so I was due a refresher course. I would recommend this outfit and plan on returning for some future dives next year.

Julia and the staff at Diversland have been fantastic! Julia has been an amazing teacher. She has a wealth of experience and made me feel safe and supported during my dives.
Best part of my vacation
, Aug 2019
I would recommend this experience to everybody, as it was above my expectations. The price is cheaper than in hotels (150 USD less) but the quality is definitely superior. The instructor was very helpful and able to transmit his enthusiasm and made us feel comfortable in every moment. The transportation from the hotel is perfect and convenient. I feel that in 3 days I became truly able to dive and I would always remember the amazing diving sessions in the wonderful Caribbean reef, plenty of corals and fishes.
PADI 3 Day Open Diver Course
, Jul 2019
The staff at Diversland Scuba Shop (Patrick and Alex) had provided outstanding class and open water instruction. He worked at your pace and until your were comfortable performing each task as you progressed through the course. It gave my son and myself a feeling of confidence and safety during the entire 3 day course. I highly recommend using Viator and the Diversland Scuba Shop. Thank you! It was great!
