It is fair to say that the underwater labyrinths of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula are breathtaking.

This submerged cave system is a paradise for cave, technical and CCR divers because you find incredibly beautiful and fragile stalactites, stalagmites and columns. It is little wonder therefore that approximately 500 dive guides are registered in and around Playa del Carmen.

Cave instructor Ricardo Castillo says:

“There are lot of dive centres in the area, but not many options for divers wanting to buy high quality technical diving kit, or needing their gear serviced and maintained.

Ricardo is part of the team at Rango Extendido and the brain child behind Dive Rite Mexico.

Local divers would often need to ship stuff direct from the USA, or ask their friends, guests or students to bring extra equipment with them. It’s not an optimal solution, hence we’ve opened ‘‘. 

We have a lot of technical diving in the area, hence we wanted to provide the very best equipment for everyone. We specifically chose to run with three manufacturers: Dive Rite, Shearwater and Waterproof. Each of these companies excel and provide the very best gear that divers need and want for technical, cave and CCR diving.

“‘Dive Rite Mexico’ opened on 12th September and we’ve found the local divers are very happy. They now have a dedicated service centre that provides warranties and a well stocked shop.
