Scuba diving in PLaya del Carmen

Scuba Diving in Playa del Carmen

Beyond Diving  is  your best choice for scuba diving in Playa del Carmen, Cenotes and Cozumel!


Welcome friends!  Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya have something to offer for divers of all levels. At Beyond Diving we strive to cater to every one of guests’ needs based on their experience levels. We are a small dive center and we limit group sizes to no more than 4 divers per instructor. It doesn’t matter if you are a newly certified open water diver, if you are just curious about learning to dive or you are a seasoned pro or even a technical or cave diver, we have something to offer you!

We have 2 daily trips to our local reefs which can be customized to your experience level. From shallow sites with little current, to deeper drift dives full of excitement.  You never know what you’ll see on any given dive. Turtles, giant moray eels, stingrays and schools of fish with numbers in the hundreds.

We are also one of the only dive centers in Playa del Carmen that offer daily direct trips to Cozumel departing from Coco Beach (just a block away from our dive center) that allow us to forgo taking the ferry, and thus save precious hours of your vacation.


Daily trips to dive in the cenotes where you will marvel with limitless visibility and crystal clear water as well as ageless rock formations. Your safety and enjoyment will never be compromised just to seek a quick thrill!

Our staff is composed of some of the most experienced recreational, technical and cave diving instructors in the area. Each one of our instructors has taught several hundreds of courses and has logged several thousands of safe dives. Scuba diving instruction today has very low standards. This is not good enough for us, nor should it be for you! With experience, we have learned to teach our students in a real-world way. We train our students to be real divers while enjoying every minute under water. All of our instructors are certified through PADI, TDI and/or IANTD.

We are a TDI 5-Star Instructor Training Facility.  We have some of the most experienced cave and techinical diving instructors (as well as a TDI-SDI instructor trainer) in our staff.  So if you are curious about cave diving, send us an email, and we will discuss all the learning possibilities available for you in Playa del Carmen with Beyond Diving.







We strive to reduce our environmental footprint by minimizing the amount of printed materials, focusing on E-learning courses, having a location within walking distance to the boat launch area so that vehicles don’t have to be moved to and from the beach, and promoting environmental education and stewardship.

Every one of our instructors is an expert diver. We are firm believers that certification is never bought, it is earned. We train every one of our students not just to minimum standards, but we actually care that our students come out confident, safe and well-trained divers. After all, that is why people have been placing their trust in us since we first opened our doors.
Our guests have honored us by giving us praise and high marks in Tripadvisor. We do not make claims of being the best dive center in Playa del Carmen. Our guests make that decision, and we will continue to work hard every day to continue to earn your trust and your business.
Every piece of equipment from our rental stock is inspected thoroughly before and after every dive and serviced at least 2-3 times per year to ensure that there will be no issues that could compromise your safety or enjoyment. Of course we cannot prevent every scenario, which is why we always carry spare regulators on every one of our trips even if you didn’t rent gear from us

Recently returned from Playa and dream myself back to Dos Ojos, Cavern diving. Thanks Eric for a great experience! a dive center which I highly recomend. New and nice equipment.

Eric was recommended to me and I wasn’t disappointed! He only uses the best equipment and safety was always the number one priority, whilst his knowledge of the dive sites meant I had 2 great days’ diving – one day of cenotes and one day of drift/reef dives. His enthusiasm was also evident and overall I thought the customer service was first class. I would go back to Beyond Diving again, and recommend him to anyone looking for a great diving experience on the Mayan Riviera.

Beyond Diving took great care of us from start to finish. We corresponded with them before we arrived in Playa del Carmen, and they were always quick to respond. We had a little bit of a scheduling miscommunication and they took care of it right away and made it work. We enjoyed the dive experiences and the Divemasters were excellent!
