Awesome PADI Certification Experience
May 2021 • Solo
Awesome experience!!! I was looking to get my PADI certification for open water and there could not have need a better place to do it than at Playa del Carmen with Scuba Libre! My dive instructor Sergio was extremely experienced and professional. In fact he's an instructor for instructors and is passionate about diving in all occasions. His help made my learning experience very simple and strait forward. Nicky was very helpful with all the administrative functions and making sure I was able to complete the course on time. Her help made my schedule very smooth. On top of that, my whole diving experience was only $400 ( including the course, rental, training material and certification) and the training center is right at the heart of Playa del Carmen. You can't ask for a better way to get certified.

Fantastic Dive Shop
Mar. 2019 • Couples
I got my Open Water certification in 2013; however, I went to Scuba Libre at Sandos with my boyfriend and did my refresher course while he did the Open Water course. The dive instructors we dealt with (Manu and Jaime) are fabulous They are meticulous and professional. The dives were great. The guys on the boat were friendly. We couldn't have asked for more. Having had some experience with other dive shops, I would definitely say that Scuba Libre was the most fastidious in ensuring all skills were done properly. Safety is paramount for them.
We can't wait to go back next year!

Perfect dive club
Staff is very nice and speak many languages! It was perfect to do two dives in a row in the afternoon.
The equipment is right next to the beach so no need to walk for long before getting on the boat.
There was a camera lady under water to take pictures and video of us. She tried to sell them to us for 60USD which I think is really pricey. When we said we would only take one for 20USD she was a bit annoyed. The picture was sent to us by email not a print out.
Overall the dives were amazing and diving instructors and staff at the shop were top.

A wonderful start to diving
My girlfriend (who has never dived before) and I did our PADI Open water course with Scuba libre. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend using this centre.

Silvia took us through the theory. As well as clearly being passionate about diving, she was incredibly clear, helpful and enthusiastic. Marc was our practical instructor. Not only did he make the dives enjoyable, we felt safe and looked-after the entire time. Both Silvia and Marc were wonderfully friendly and we are going to miss them now we have left Playa del Carmen!
