The staff at Scuba Libre did a good job in taking us on a 2-tank dive. The diving here is drift diving, with very rapid current that carried us along at a pace almost too fast to see everything there was to see. Our divemaster would have us tuck behind a reef to get out of the current to take... More

Diving with Scubalibre was nice, with good equipment, I've seen worse around there. Also they arranged that I could go to Cozumel with another boat as it was full. Very nice, go there!

It was my first time scuba diving, and did the day experience where you learn in a pool in the morning and dive up to 12m in the ocean in the afternoon. The instructors were very knowledgeable and made us newbies feel safe, and never rushed us. We saw sea turtles, manta rays, beautiful coral and fish. This was in... More

Professional dive shack with new kit and competent staff and procedures. Disappointed that they have shark feeding dives due to conflict with principles of "observing" rather than "interfering" with natural cycles; never thought it a good idea to make sharks see people and think food!

My dad and I were looking to do a few dives while we were in Playa Del Carmen. The staff was so KIND, CARING, and HELPFUL. We took the refresher course in the pool, which was well organized and very fun. I would recommend that to anyone who hasn't been on a dive in more then a year or two.... More

All the staff was great and we hit 4 amazing reefs while I was there. If you are in the playa del carmen area, you won't be disappointed if you dive with them.

The dive team at Scuba Libre were very professional. Their dedication to diving was very evident. They clearly realized the dangerous nature of scuba diving and did everything possible to make the event a safe and exciting adventure.

I completed my open water certificate here, thoroughly enjoyed the warm clear water and sights, and the staff definitely made the experience more enjoyable. All staff were friendly, helpful, relaxed, fun and professional. They seemed to work really well together as a team to meet the different divers needs. Thanks to Samuel for helping me organize a realistic timeframe for... More

We'd certainly join these guys again next time. All round happy with our two trips with Scuba Libre, once out on the reef and again out to Dos Ojos cenote. Must have been the best equipent I've rented for a few years even at the end of the season! Instructors were very professional and attentive to the whole experience for... More
