There are several different types of PADI courses in Playa del Carmen. Here’s a quick guide to help you know which courses you should sign up for when you plan your diving trip.

Introductory Scuba Courses

There are several introductory courses that can give you all of the PADI basics, and help you get started. For example, there are PADI courses in Playa del Carmen for kids, or for those who just want to learn to snorkel. While these classes do not offer certification they are full of good information and can be a great way to “get your feet wet.” If you’re trying to decide if you want to move forward with your PADI certification, you’ll enjoy getting the head start on your education through an introductory course.

PADI Certification Courses

If you’re certain that you do want to be certified at some point, it’s best to begin right away with a certification course. PADI courses in Playa del Carmen typically offer two different options for certification. The first is a certification in PADI diving. The PADI scuba diving course offers the basics, and more in-depth technical training and knowledge. The biggest advantage of the PADI scuba diving course is that it can be completed more quickly. This makes it an excellent choice in certification for people who are short on time. This program allows you to do the bookwork online before the first dive, and then you will have the rest of the program completed within a year. Most people, even those with very busy schedules, find this to be a reasonable way to fit scuba certification into their everyday lives.

The second certification is the Open Water diver certification. This is one of the most commonly held certifications by divers, and it will work extremely well for most people. In these PADI courses in Playa del Carmen, you’ll definitely increase your knowledge base and improve your skills in diving. Afterwards, you’ll be able to test your new knowledge in the water with the help of a guide.

The PADI open water diving certification is perhaps the most well-known and easily recognized certification. Best of all, it can be started with online courses and finished at a dive center around the world. This works well for many travelers because they are able to do their book work ahead of time from home, and then finish the certification while on vacation.
