  • positive review  Amazing experience! Anne-Laure and Arthur are incredible guides, very welcoming and professional. They took the time to throughly explain each dive site, so I felt really prepared for the dives! The cenotes were incredible- two of the best dives I’ve ever done in my life. Thank you for such a great experience!! If you want to dive in the cenotes, definitely dive with Elite Divers.

  • 5 star review  Diving with both Arthur and Anne-Laure was just exceptional. They are spot on with their organisation, always on time and we totally appreciated they knew when to be at certain dive spots to avoid the crowds. We did bull sharks and Cozumel,that was amazing, but really the 6 cenotes we saw were a total cherry on a vegan cake� Absolutely fantastic service, made us feel very relaxed and safe, saw the incredible cenotes and their advice on how to improve our diving as well as diving equipment and dive spots were much appreciated. They really go above and beyond to accommodate their divers. After having some questionable dive guides in the past, we were cautious choosing our playa dive centre and Elite divers international are a complete jackpot! Thanks again guys and hope to dive with you again!

  • positive review  Super expérience avec Anne-Laure, c’était mon baptême de plongée dans un Cadre magnifique (Casa Cenote). Anne-Laure est très pédagogue et m’a expliqué toutes les étapes à suivre en détail. Expérience magique une fois sous l’eau dans le Cenote. Le club est très pro et vient vous chercher à l’hôtel et vous raccompagne une fois la plongée terminée. Je ne peux que le recommander 🙂

  • 5 star review  I went diving a few times with Anne-Laure and it has been amazing. She is a beautiful diver, very professional, dedicated to her divers, passionate about her job, thorough but cool at the same time. I hope to keep diving with her for a long time and to get my full cave certificate with her as my instructor one day! Do not hesitate and go discover the magical beauty of the cenotes with Anne-Laure!

  • 5 star review  Everything, from start to end, was perfect. Anne Laure took us to 2 very nice cenotes, explained us everything about it. We had an amazing experience, provided by a true passionate professional. They love their work and have a real passion for those amazing and very special caverns. Anne Laure took care of everything for us, from lunch, to equipment and we had a great day with her. Thanks guys, for making our dives so special 🙂

  • 5 star review  The languages of French, Spanish, and English do not have enough top of the pinnacle adjectives to describe the performance of Arthur Nguyen-Kim and Anne-Laure Huynh during last week's dive trip. Their professionalism, ability to think on their feet, and friendliness is boundless. We met as diver and parted as friends. Five stars plus infinity is my rating and recommendation for them. Truly Elite Divers! 😍

  • positive review  Nice to meet passionate divers who love their jobs and treat every dive as though it was their first so many companies who just go through the motions out there but not this one. Tailored to your needs in every way with some mind blowing moments in the cenotes that literally take your breath away. The caves and caverns are a great new adventure for many new divers away from their comfort zone of the open ocean but briefings and safety are paramount with Arthur and Anne so you are in safe hands with them you don't get to call your company elite divers int without living up to the name. Would I dive with them again..absolutely. Would I want to have any training with them..definitely. Would I class them as friends In and out of the water..Yes. for a personal service I couldn't recommend elite divers more highly...until next time 🤘🤘

  • positive review  My partner and I just came back from a week in Playa del Carmen, and diving with Arthur and Flo was definitely the highlight of our trip. Cavern diving in the cenotes is probably the most unique and thrilling diving experience I've ever had — coming out of the dark cave in Jardin del Eden, and seeing the magnificent light pattern streaming in through the mangroves is something I'll cherish forever. Being in an overhead environment for the first time was scary, though, and I'm so glad we had Arthur to help and guide us through. Seeing him calm and collected navigating the caverns, you immediately sense his experience and competence. He is very safety-oriented too, which is reassuring. We also did the bull-shark dive with Flo (and Anne-Laure, though she couldn't join us in the water) — again, a great experience to see the bull sharks swim up close, as they swim by super close to you. Watching the giant turtle munch on sea grass, and a stingray glide past was an added bonus. If you're looking to dive in the Riviera Maya area, you can't go wrong picking Elite Divers International.

  • positive review  I highly recommend Elite Divers International, both Arthur and Anne-Laure are very professional and experienced so we felt very safe during the dives. I did the bullshark diving with Arthur, and it was amazing! They had good quality rental equipment and took great care of us before and after the dives to make us feel comfortable and make the process go as smooth as possible in everything from payment to picking us up in the morning. I have been diving with some terrible dive shops in Mexico, but these guys are definitely one of the best!
