Fantastic Dive! Claudio was the best master diver I've ever had and gone with 5 others. Even though the clarity was a little bad that day because of the weather, the dive was the best I've had. Cozumel is always worked up in this area as the best diving and is from what I hear but Playa Del Carmen reefs... More

I only had time for two morning dives, but I enjoyed them very much. There was more current than I like (I like to sit and study things, but we had to look at things as they whizzed by!). The second dive was a bit calmer, as there were cavern inlets to explore and get out of the current. Our... More

Just completed open water certification at the Sandos Caracol. All staff were very friendly & professional. With the boats onsite and good dive sites very close to the resort makes the dives take less time of your vacation! They do sometimes pick up groups at the other resort which can take a little longer. Only one other diving experience but... More

Before arriving on holiday I did a fair bit of research into dive centres but decided to go with Scuba Libre as they were conveniently based in my hotel (Sandos Caracol Eco Resort) and very pleased I did! While diving in Mexico is more expensive than I have paid elsewhere in the world that's just something you have to accept... More

Diving is my passion, the team here at Scuba Libre are great diving professionals. Senior Herev the dive master guided us with my family to dive close to Playa del Carmen. I'm impressed with his care and sense of safety. The team is willing to modify the dive plan to suit the weather or divers skill. When I'm vacationing in... More
