Playa del Carmen 2023

Applications are now open!

Last June Diving with Heroes visited Cozumel for the first time. After the trip, the DWH Board of Directors traveled to the mainland for some additional diving. Holed up in Playa del Carmen, they spent three days diving the cenotes, a freshwater cave system that is unique to Yucatán Mexico. It was amazing and we thought it would be an awesome experience to share with our divers.


This year, join DWH in Playa del Carmen Saturday, August 12, through Saturday, August 19. The trip includes: seven nights' accommodation, five days of diving, any course materials or certifications needed, and some additional fun. 


Participants must:

  • Be Open Water certified;

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