Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Learn to dive (5 days / 4 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The diving
Doing your PADI Open Water Course - the initial step on the ladder in your diving adventure - in Playa Del Carmen will provide you with a diving experience that is far from what you would get anywhere else.

Few places on our planet give you the contrast between two very different but equally inspiring underwater worlds. Mexico is an exception. One day you will be on a boat, ready to gear up for your dive on one of the biggest most beautiful coral reefs in the world. The next you will be on your way into the ancient Mayan Jungle in a jeep full of dive gear, on a mission to dive the enchanting cenotes. These two types of diving are so spectacular that you can’t do one without doing the other!

During your Open Water Course, the best environment will be chosen on a day-to-day basis, based on the weather.

Together with your instructor, you will have a fun, safe and different course that will be something to remember.

Situated between Cancun and Tulum on the Mayan Riviera, Playa, as locals call it, has grown to be the most frequented vacation destination in Mexico. You'll find miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea to the east, while lush green jungle parallels the town to the west. Here, beach bumming and visiting ancient Mayan ruins is almost as popular as the legendary nightlife.

Accommodation in Playa Del Carmen
Hotel La Rana Cansada (meaning The Tired Frog) is a boutique hotel with a Mexican flavor that has offered guests a personal touch to their stay since 1984 in the heart of Playa del Carmen. The young and vibrant vibe of the hotel reflects the environment in which it is situated. Within a mere 100 meters you will find the dive center, the beach and the main street where cafes and bars are only outnumbered by little art shops and Mexican market stands.

Your room in Playa Del Carmen
Staying in one of the funkiest hotels in town, you’ll not find two rooms alike. Each room is designed differently with a double bed, high ceilings, a massive fan and hot water. There’s free WiFi in the little garden and the bar.
