About Dive Life.

Diving is our place of peace, our meditation, it is the moment we become one with nature, it is our greatest adventure. We are inseparable from the water and are completely amazed by this element, whether it is the ocean, a lake, cenotes, or even a pool. We just love to be underwater.

Our first location was in Mexico city in 2001 and currently we have subsidiaries in Isla Mujeres and Playa del Carmen where we also manage the dive activities in the Grand Velas Hotel and support the activities of “Buceando Mahahual”.

In all our dive centers we have programs for beginners, like Discover Scuba or Scuba Diver, and advanced or technical specialties. As an authorized PADI Instructor Development Center we also offer professional courses (Divemaster or Instructors) and an unequaled Internship program to introduce you to the career of diving.

There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the passion of life.

  • Sthepanie Y.Bull Shark and Cenote Diving

    I had an amazing dive experience with Francisco at Dive Life! I did the bull shark dive, which was very exciting and such an adrenaline rush. We saw 6-7 bull sharks, some of them as close as 10 meters away, slowly circling the area. I also did the Garden of Eden cenote, which has a little bit of everything- fossils, halocine, open water, and shards of Mayan pottery. The vision of light passing through the water is truly and unforgettable sight. Francisco was very patient and thorough in his debrief, and I felt comfortable and prepared for both dives. I had a rather tight timeline and the Dive Life team was incredibly accommodating. It's clear that the team is passionate about diving. I am already planning my next dives here!

  • Tatjana S.Best diving school in Playa del Carmen

    I did two dives with Dive Life. I was diving alone with the owner of the dive shop, which was a great experience. We had two dives in two different cenotes, well chosen, absolutely loved it. We went there by car/jeep, which was really comfortable. The equipment was really good & clean. The stuff in the dive shop is really friendly and English speaking. The payment was possible via card. The prices absolutely fair. Will definitely come back and highly recommended.

  • Jory H.Highly Recommended!

    Small and Personalized Dives in Riviera Maya! I live in Playa del Carmen and have been on many amazing dives with Dive Life, both in PDC and Cozumel. It is our favorite shop in the area. All the dives are within a small group and they really work with you on locations and specific sites. We've dove with Francisco, Victor, Soren and Barbara, all of which are great people, very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. They offer the full scale of PADI instruction as well as many different dives in Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, various cenotes, and Isla Mujeres.
