Scuba Diving in Playa del Carmen - Beyond Diving. Your Local Dive Shop in the Riviera Maya
Simply put, we love scuba diving. Beyond Diving is a family run dive center in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, in Playa del Carmen. We take extreme pride in our ability to provide each of our guests and student divers with the most amazing dives and the most up to date scuba diving courses through our partner agencies SDI, TDI and PADI. Our experienced instructors are always willing to help you improve your diving and to give you tips and suggestions.
We are constantly amazed and inspired by the diving in Playa del Carmen. So much life around our reefs and great visibility make every dive and unbelievable experience. Be it a shallow reef or a deep drift dive, you will most certainly come out with a smile on your face!
If you are an experienced diver, and you've never dove in a cenote, then you are missing out! Picture water so clear, it feels like you're floating on air. Ageless rock formations and unbelievable light effect provided by the sun with leave you in awe throughout the dives.
We are one of the only dive shops in Playa del Carmen that offer a direct trip to Cozumel. What does this mean, you ask... well, with this trip, you do not have to waste hours of your vacation by taking the ferry, and then transferring to the Cozumel dive shop. We depart directly from Coco Beach and head out to do 2 amazing dives in Cozumel. We are normally back in time for lunch!
Beyond Diving is proud to be a TDI-SDI 5-Star Instructor Training Facility!

My Fiancée and I are avid divers and wanted to do some warm water diving as well as Cenotes while in Playa on a trip from Seattle. You never know what you will get when you find a dive shop online and email them. Well that is where everything starts!From the first email I had that "this is going to be a great shop and experience". Sandra and Erik are totally responsive and provide great options on multi-day divesFrom the first minute we arrived it was a totally personal experience and nothing was missed.Being a dive instructor myself I am always watching who I dive with and all I can say is that Erik and Beyond Diving is a total 5 star experience.I could keep going on and on about how welcoming and fun Erick and Sandra are.Do not hesitate to book your dives with them...you will have nothing but a fantastic time!
Erik Rosenstein is second to none. His laid back yet highly professional approach to teaching and training is just perfect in my opinion. He and Sandra Amaya run a tight, high quality dive shop. I was there for cenote dives, my TDI Sidemount course, and my wife took her PADI Advanced and Nitrox courses with Zac and Erik, respectively. I'll be back in 2017 for my TDI Full Cave unless something VERY wrong happens - I hope that doesn't bring me bad juju.Thank you guys for the great time we had there.Cheers!
My daughters and I took a diving discovery package with Beyond Diving on 10 August. Our first impression of a safe, professional and friendly environment to learn the first steps of diving was never altered: Eric is an excellent instructor, paused, clear in his explanations, calm and patient. The morning pool exercices and theory are followed by two afternoon divings. We felt safe at all times and taken good care of, even when one of our group had to cut short the second dive. All necessary equipment was included in the package. I strongly recommend Beyond Diving and look forward to go diving with them on our next trip to Playa del Carmen. Thank you Eric and Sandra for this great experience!
I did 8 dives with Beyond Diving and it was excellent. 4 Local reef dives, 2 cenotes dives and 2 cozumel dives. Erik is a really cool guy and has lot of expert knowledge. His wife Sandra was organizing everything very well, even if i had some spontaneous wishes. I can really recommend this divecenter.
Erik is DA MAN! I did my full cave training with him, and it was a very intense, very demanding and very well planned and excecuted course. He does not cut corners and he does not allow his students to cut corners either. This is very important in an environment like caves. I had done some cenote dives with Erik before, and caught the bug, and decided to go all in. I am glad I did. I have been diving for over a decade, and Erik put me through the wringer and made sure I understood everything and mastered every skill.
Beyond Diving was just as their name. They go above and beyond what is expected of them. The Owners run the shop themselves and they are the friendliest and most caring people around.They cater to your experience as well as teach you something new in the process of having fun!!!
