Hi, can anyone recommend a good dive operator for the Cenotes out of Playa del Carmen or Cancun? Looking for someone who will know the best ones to take photos at!

(Know there are existing threads on this, but they're a few years old already!)

Thanks! :D

I can also recommend Dive Aventuras.  Had two amazing dives in the cenotes, as well as a bunch of dives in the ocean.  Very good divemasters, especially for the cenotes.

I have had good experiences with Tank-Ha Diving in Playa del Carmen.  Not the cheapest, and I don't know about their rental equipment, but I liked their DM's and things were run well.

I dived with Scuba Mobile in Playa del Carmen and they were very friendly, helpful and the guide Dario for the Cenotes was knowledgable, slow paced and very understanding with regards to photography. He even modelled for me and let me attach remote lights to him. I dived with other places but found the service at Scuba Mobile was best in my opinion.
