Playa del Carmen offers an infinite number of options, from luxury hotels and apartments to room-sharing hostels and Airbnb’s. We recommend you to choose an accommodation located within a short bicycle ride from our IDC training facilities in Playacar.
Our IDC classroom is located in the heart of the Allegro Playacar 4* hotel, past gardens, tennis courts and swimming pools. The large main pool on the beach with its bridge and stunning ocean views will make your pool training even more rewarding. The classroom itself is spacious, air-conditioned, and features a coffee-machine and cookies, for a refreshing start to your day.
Apart from the pool dives at the Allegro Playacar, you will discover some of Pro Dive’s other PADI 5-Star Dive Centers, such as our base next door at the luxurious, adult-only Royal Hideaway Playacar. Here, we will store and set up our gear, hold dive briefings, depart by boat for our ocean dives and bull shark encounters (season November-March), leave by van to dive in the famous cenotes, among other. For our dives in Cozumel, we will take the ferry and van to one of our dive centers on the island.
During your IDC, we will hand you some food coupons to join our staff at the hotel staff cafeteria. Furthermore, you will be able to fully indulge in the delicious local Mexican food and have friendly chats while eating tacos. Let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or concerns.
