About Allegro Playacar & Pro Dive Mexico

If you are looking for an all inclusive holiday in Mexico, look no further. The Allegro Playacar combines outstanding facilities for everyone - divers and non divers are welcome! Located within the quiet zone of Playacar, the Allegro is a welcome retreat from life's hustle and bustle, yet remains within walking distance of Playa del Carmen's bars and restaurants. Feel the warm sand between your toes or take the plunge beneath the sea with Pro Divers... you can do as much or as little as you want on this holiday to Mexico!

The Allegro Playacar sits right on its own beach and is set amongst tropical gardens. The hotel offers 2 rooms grades. As standard, you will find air con, a mini bar, TV, iron, coffee making facilities and a safe. The superior rooms have either a king sized double or twin beds. The superior plus rooms are closer to the beach and pool, many with sea views. No matter which room you chose, you will enjoy the comprehensive all inclusive package, including unlimited meals, snacks and beverages.

The team from ProDivers are on hand on site (the dive centre is located next door, with a permanent presence in the Allegro Playacar) to help you plan each and every dive during your stay. But if you are taking some down time away from the boat, why not visit the tennis or basketball courts. Or try your hand at beach volleyball, grab a kayak or body board. There is a day time kids club for younger guests and a full entertainment schedule to keep even the most active body on the go! Fancy a more sedate pace of life? Why not visit the spa or golf course (local charges apply).

Frequently Asked Questions

Location

Cancun is around 11 hours flying time direct from London. Los Cabos is around 18-20hours indirect flying time. Mexico's Carribbean coastline is famous for the cenotes dives. Cozumel's rich drift dives and the whalesharks of Isla Mujeres. On the Pacific coast, the remote locations mean pelagics. The diving on this side is more advanced, more rugged and action packed.

Weather and Climate

Both the east and west coasts of Mexico enjoy a warm climate. It's a brilliant place for winter sun! For the Caribbean coastline, you can expect more rain over our summer months, but this tends to be in the evenings. It can be stormier between July - September and humidity higher. Los Cabos is more arid, with a year round average air temp of around 25-28 degrees.

The main star of the diving around Playa Del Carmen is undoubtedly the cenotes. These sinkholes are unique to the Yucatan and are easy dives for all experience levels. But there is so much more to discover and with the Pro Dive Mexico team, you are in safe hands!

Pro Dive Mexico are a multinational team who have the experience you need to make your diving holiday in Mexico a success. They can teach all PADI courses right through from your first try dive up to Divemaster... and beyond.

  • 5 star PADI IDC centre
  • Guided cenotes dives
  • Daily boat reef diving
  • Free nitrox
  • Dive Cozumel with Pro Dive too!

Mexico's cenotes are cave dives with a difference - many are bight, spacious environments and divers do not need special training. All cenotes dives are carefully guided and technical caves can be dived (please discuss this at the time of booking). Dos Ojos and Chac Mol are must do dives! But in addition to the famous cenotes there are great reef and wreck dives on your door step. The Mama Vina wreck sits at 30m and has become a popular artificial reef with divers. There are gentle reef dives for less experienced divers or head to Turtle reef, where pelagic fish and turtles await. Between December and March you can dive with bull sharks from Playa del Carmen - please talk to one of our consultants if you would like more information.
