Just would like to make everyone aware that Maya Diving is no longer operating out of Dreams Tulum. I could not even find them at Tankah Inn. It would seem that Maya Diving left Dreams about a year ago but they don't update their website. Divemasters at Dreams did not even think they are operating at the moment. The Dreams... More

We called Tim in desparation one day before leaving Mexico to give us a snorkeling tour. He obliged. Within 18 hrs from the call, we were jumping into their boat out of Tankah Inn, Tulum. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon with clear skies and calm waters. Diego ensured we were suited up with proper gear and took us out... More

Budgie was a great first time instructor. While my wife floated to the top of the cenotes, he kept a clear eye on me, and instinct and experience was very telling. I can tell you, Budgie will go out of his way to create, and guide a dive tailored to your level of experience. The staff is above par compared... More

I have been diving with Tim and his crew at Maya Diving for 8+ years, ranging from remote cenotes to relaxing reef dives. Everyone at MD will cater to your individual needs, regardless of experience and adventure tolerance level. One day diving to 110 at sinkhole Anjelita and the next introducing my then 10 year old daughter and 13 year... More

Staying at the Dreams resort, we were curious having seen the Scuba sessions in the pool. We went snorkelling as a family at Akumal and saw turtles, wonderful coral and fish. I then went scuba diving at Casa Cenote with Will. The focus on safety was excellent and Will was helpful and reassuring. If you are staying at Dreams, take... More

We got in contact with many divecenters before we picked one,This felt more personal since they organized the trip perfectly for us and the price was much lower than the other divecenters. When we arrived in the morning at the bus station and our guide, Budgie (!) was there to pick us up. A bit more about Budgie, he has... More

Hi there! Your centre has outstanding reviews but I just wanted to submit some constructive feedback based on our experience 2 weeks ago in April 2013. The staff were great and fantastic working with us to take us to some absolutely gorgeous sites which we really enjoyed, however, both of our groups of 15+ people had difficulties with equipment.

My eight year old son, Max, wanted to try diving but was too young for the excursions. Jamie was kind enough to allow Max an extended demo in the pool. Max loved it so much that Jamie offered him a Bubblemaster class in which Max learned the basics of diving. It was the highlight of our trip and as all... More

I've been to Dreams Tulum resort three times now, and have been snorkeling and diving at Maya Diving on all three trips. Since my first diving experience with Will, another trip where I did my diving with Deon, and now getting my Open Water Certification with Jamie, all I can say is, awesome! I've always taken my boys and other... More

While on vacation at Dreams Tulùm, I did my PADI open water certification. My main instructor was Will and he did a tremendous job. He instructed us in the pool and then in the open water and in a Cenote (fresh water cavern). His teaching was very clear, very precise and always safety oriented. He would explain calmly everything more... More
