Why Planet Scuba Mexico

Main activities

Planet Scuba Mexico is a professional owner-run scuba center and offers three main activities:

  • Recreational Cenotes tours & courses
  • Technical diving & courses
  • Professional Cavern & Cave Development Programs

Compared to many of our competitors, we concentrate on a few selected activities. This allows us to fully dedicate ourselves to the products and services we offer without having to cut corners in customer safety and service. All programs, be it recreational, technical or professional are conducted in house by us personally. You will not be sent off into the hands of partner organizations like many others do.

No matter if you are a single diver or travelling in a group, we ensure you have a great time with us!

Top-Notch Diving Equipment

We use brand new and frequently serviced state-of the art Cressi scuba equipment for our recreational divers and high-end Hollis and Apeks tech gear for all technical and cave divers. A combination nowhere else to be found in the world. All gear used for our tours is available for purchase and we are proud to hold the official dealership for both Cressi and Hollis.

All our staff are proven professionals with a long track record in customer safety and service and love what they do. Noone working at Planet Scuba is doing so as their part-time activity - all work full time and have chosen this profession for many years to come. Our aim is to offer you a great experience at Planet Scuba Mexico through customized dives and courses. From start to finish we strive to give you an exciting, safe and relaxed time. The way we do things sets us apart from many others in the area.

Markus Teupe

MI# 497716 & Full Cave & Tech Instructor


Markus found his passion for diving 18 years ago in Hurghada, Egypt. After spending some years as a sport diver he decided to make this breathtaking activity his profession.

His first stop as PADI Instructor lead him to Thailand from where he changed quite fast to the Carribean. After some years on the Netherland Antilles Markus found the perfect balance of working and living here in Mexico.

After some time as Center Manager for a big dive company in Playa del Carmen he decided to go his own way and founded a company specialized in individual Cavern and Cave diving tours.

This was the initial step to form Planet Scuba Mexico.

Still loving recreational diving, Markus is very ambitious about Technical and Cave diving as well as teaching tech and cave courses.
