The Fives Downtown in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

The Fives Downtown hotel in Puerto del Carmen, i.e. the Caribbean part of Mexico is a really good hotel. Here you will find high standards in several different categories of rooms and with a central location close to restaurants, shopping and nightlife. At the same time, you are only a few minutes' walk from the long beach of Playa del Carmen and can spend lazy, beautiful days interspersed with diving and experiences on land. Here from The Fives, you have access to diving with The Five's own diving center that picks you up every day and takes you to different places so that you can experience the beautiful diving of the Caribbean. They also offer tours where you have the opportunity to try diving in cenotes.

For those who want to enjoy life and have access to a bit more fast-paced life around you, The Fives Downtown is a wonderful choice of accommodation where you also have a café, restaurant and bar or why not relax on the hotel's roof terrace by the pool and enjoy the view out across the Caribbean Sea.

Great relaxation and holidays, diving and experiences on land

In addition to diving, the hotel also offers trips and experiences to nearby attractions where you experience nature and culture in the best way in the Riviera Maya area. For those who want to experience a little more of Mexico, you have the opportunity to combine it with diving on the Pacific coast but also with diving in, for example, Belize. Unfortunately, there are few liveaboards in the Caribbean part of Mexico, but on the west coast towards the Pacific Ocean there is an opportunity to experience, for example, the Sea of ​​Cortez or Socorro Island. More about liveaboard to Socorro you can see here as an example. Contact us for your trip to Mexico and the Caribbean.

Diving and snorkeling in Mexico with The Fives Dive center

  • Pickup directly at the hotel every day
  • Varied diving with coral reefs, sharks, wrecks and caves
  • Large selection of diving courses

The Fives dive center offers courses, SSI from beginners and try diving, refresher course and continuation courses with various special areas. The diving center picks you up every day at the hotel and takes you to different locations depending on the content of your program that you have booked with us. Here you can experience the reefs at Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos and also out on the island of Cozumel with its fantastic reefs and dropoffs.

For those who are looking for a little more focused content besides fish and reefs and want a little more excitement, day trips are also offered diving with bull sharks (certain times of the year), cenotes or wreck diving.
The magical play of light in the underwater caves, so-called cenotes, which can be found over large parts of the Yucatan Peninsula, is a fantastic experience and something you can try regardless of whether you are a beginner or a specialist in cave diving.

Out on the reef, you can experience eagle rays, stingrays, Caribbean reef sharks and large quantities of fish. Out at Cozumel is the very unique spldid toadfish which is unique to Cozumel and Belize and quite rare to see. In addition there are lots of fish species including barracudas, emperor fish, dragon fish - which should not be in the Caribbean, butterfly fish and several species of shrimp and crustacean. This is just a small part of the marine life on the reef. If you're lucky, you may even see a whale shark or manta ray passing by.
