Liuba, our cute mermaid, will welcome you by the km 0,3 of the coastal road to Xcalak, not far from the lighthouse, where the Mexican Caribbean unfolds one of its alluring landscapes.

Mar Adentro Diving Center was established on 13th December 2011 south of the village, to be relocated after hurricane Ernesto. Today is adjacent to Señor Frog’s bar and restaurant and it boasts Majahual’s finest beach, stretching just in front: the Blue Bay Beach Club. Besides, we are very close to one of most interesting local dive sites: Los Escalones.

Our business hours: 8:30 am to 6:30 pm, seven days a week. But we are flexible and eager to adapt to your needs. Count on us!


Our facilities are functional and new, so is the equipment.


In Mar Adentro we have four top priorities: the good health of the reef , the quality of teaching,safety and fun. We also believe scuba diving should belong to divers and not to the diving industry. We love to make friends.


We will always go the extra mile to make your stay in Majahual as pleasant as possible.

Owner and Founder

Born in Basel and grown up in Madrid, he seemed to be far enough from the sea to develop a passion that made him changed his career as journalist and photographer for a life surronded by fish. Having dive here and there, he was tempted by the Indopacific, but when he discovered Costa Maya’s huge potential he said to himself: ‘Philippines tomorrow, Mexico today’. And Mar Adentro was born in Majahual. PADI OWSI and Specialty Instructor, Oscar is in charge of the public relations and the diving operation, so now you know to who to blame. No big deal, he loves to be under pressure all the time.


Free Diving Instructor

We call him Llama, something that is obscurely related with the fact he comes from Buenos Aires. Professional musician, he decided to give himself a break and travel around… until destiny brought him to Majahual and falled in love with the place and the diving. After completing his Dive Master he followed to became instructor, but a free diving one. Naturally caring, sensitive and sensible, Llama is the one that provides the zen mood to the team when needed.


Base Leader

Our most veteran Dive Master switched the snows of the volcano rising over his natal Toluca for our Caribbean blues some years ago, and that was for good, since diving has now another great pro in this corner of Mexico. Patient, quick thinker although silent, competent and careful, Jaime (aka Sir James, Jay and Jauma) turns any dive in a good dive and you can be sure to be in good hands. He knows very well the secrets of the reef and nobody hunts lionfish like him; usually he is so concentrated that he may ignore any curious shark nosing around.


Dive Master

In order not to miss the beautiful Mediterranean that bathes his dearest Estellencs, Mallorca, (but with the possibility of enjoying more exciting dives), Juanjo decided to come to Majahual to become a diver. From Open Water to Dive Master, he is 100% Made in Mar Adentro and we are proud of him. Now then, that carpe diem attitude that add a touch of colour to the dive shop is all his own. If you are interested in having good memories of your diving experience here, ask him to hit the water with you.
