Playa del Carmen 2024

Join us in Mexico this summer!

8 spots remain!

For the past two years Diving with Heroes has traveled to the Mexican state of Quintana Roo -- in 2022 we stayed in Cozumel, and in 2023 we were in Playa del Carmen. We are enamored with Playa del Carmen, the gateway to the cenotes, a freshwater cave system that is unique to the Yucatán Peninsula. This past year's excursion was particularly amazing and we thought, in honor of our 10-year anniversary, it would be an awesome experience to do all over again.


This year we invite you to join DWH in Playa del Carmen for an alumni-only excursion Saturday, June 15, through Saturday, June 22. This trip is a pay your way experience -- the trip cost is $1500 (not including air fare, meals, crew tips, or any courses you may elect to take).

What's included:

  • Airport transfers;

  • Seven nights' accommodation;

  • Five days of two-tank dives (three days in the ocean + two days in the cenotes);

  • Nitrox Upgrade (when applicable); and

  • A snorkel tour to visit Reggie and his family.

Participants must:

  • Be Advanced Open Water certified;

  • Provide their own equipment (or pay for their rentals); and

  • Secure their own transportation to Cancun International Airport (CUN). All participants should arrive no later than 3:30 p.m. EDT. 


Space on this alumni trip is first-come first-served. To sign-up, please send the following to DWH's Executive Director Jill Hottel:

  • Completed participant packet (participant form, liability waiver, and medical questionnaire);

  • Written Statement of Purpose briefly describing how your previous participation with DWH impacted you and how participating again will enable you to positively impact other veterans and give back to DWH

  • Copy of your latest diver-level scuba certification card;

  • Copy of your active dive accident insurance (i.e., Divers Alert Network, DiveAssure); and

  • $800 deposit (remaining balance due in full by Sunday, March 31).

Deposit is required to secure your place.
