Specialty Shops

One of the area's more interesting specialty retailers is Reef Marina Diving. This store is located 11.4 mi. Northeast of central La Gloria. Only accessible from the beach or through the hotel with which it is associated, this dive center has everything you need to become a fully certified diver and get out on the water to enjoy local sites which include reefs and cenotes. To talk to them, call (984) 873-4120.

Another good option is Studio Blue Carmen, which is found one and a quarter miles (a kilometer and a half) to the northeast of Reef Marina Diving. The second of two Studio Blue Dive Shops in Mexico, this location opened in 1995 after much success at the one on Cozumel. This center shies away from large groups, only offering dives for less than six people at once, and all of the staff is certified bilingual.

Pro Dive Center at Catalonia Riviera Maya: Diving courses are available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German. ScubaPro and Cressi equipment are available for rental, including a wide range of sizes and gear. Visitors can call them at (984) 745-0763.
