Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo
Dive site characteristics
Source: In case of emergency. There is an hyperbaric chamber in Playa del Carmen operated by Buceo Medico Mexicano (consult the web site for any coordinates change). It is located on Avenida 10 Esq. 28 Nte. (phone: 873-1365 or 803-1216).
From the wharf or from the sea shore, the boat goes to one of the dive sites chosen.
Once at the dive site, according to charter operations, the boat maybe anchored or not (usually not).
The divemaster will detail the dive plan. Please (for those who are unfamiliar) be attentive to the dive instructions given by the divemaster and keep it quiet in order to allow the others not to miss any details. At the end of the dive, the divemaster will use a dive marker to indicate to the boat operator where to pick up the divers.
Note: directions are accurate as possible, you must use the service of a local charter.
