phocéa mexico

It’s been almost two decades since we opened a small dive center located in Playa del Carmen. We now manage several Phocéa diving bases, spread from East to West, on Mexican territory, 2.200 miles away. Rigor, quality of service, availability, and flexibility are our TOP priorities.
“Ask us for the impossible and we offer it to you.”

MEXICAN CARIBBEAN

In the heart of the Caribbean, Playa del Carmen, a charming fishing village that has become a must-see seaside resort on the Yucatan peninsula, has around fifteen diving spots suitable for all levels. This real aquatic paradise is perfectly located in order to make the most of all the assets of this region. Cozumel Island is only a 30min speedboat ride away. The cenotes are located 20min from the dive center and it only takes 40min to discover the whale sharks.

In Cozumel, the lobsters come out of their holes and taunt you knowing that they are safe from all fishing. We take you there every day from the dive center by speedboat.
