  • When is the best time to dive in Playa del Carmen?

    There is no bad time to dive in Playa del Carmen, as it is located along the sunny Mexican Caribbean. In fact, the water temperature remains constant year-round and only gets slightly cooler during the winter months.

    Have a look at the current weather:

  • What is the water temperature like?

    Ocean water temperature:
    - in Winter: 25-27℃ / 77-80℉
    - in Summer: 28-30℃ / 82-86℉

    Cenotes water temperature: 25-26℃ / 77-78℉.
    Because of the lack of sunlight, you will get colder than you think while Cenote diving. We will provide you with thicker wetsuits if you have your own ocean gear.

  • What marine life can I expect?

    In Playa Del Carmen you will see most of the common Caribbean marine life, such as Turtles, Lobsters, Shrimps, Angelfish, Parrotfish of various species, French Grunts, Snappers, Puffers and Burrfish, Barracuda, Trumpetfish, Scorpionfish, Green Morays, Spotted Morays, Lionfish, Stingrays, Eagle Rays, to list only a few.
    We also have seasonal visitors such as Bull Sharks from November to March, and Whale Sharks from May to September. For more details have a look at the Bull Sharks or Whale Sharks section.

    Bring your swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, sunglasses and a great attitude!

    • If you have your own dive gear, bring it.
    • If you’re a certified diver, please bring your certification card and log book (if you have one). If you don’t have your certification card with you and are certified with PADI we can look up your certification online.
