Pretty laidback as long as you stay fairly close to the group. Deepest we
hit was just past 100. Longest dive just over 1 hour.

I have stayed at the Iberostar twice now and both times Dressel divers were
excellent with their diving accomidations, service, and friendliness. On my
last trip I booked the Gorilla dive package which included 11 total dives.
Two of which were in the cavern systems at Playa del Carmen. The current
was strong on one of the days but were mild otherwise. The cavern dives
were very exciting but excellent bouyancy skills are a must. The reefs are
amazing and fish plentyful. Staff is very friendly and more than willing to
assist with equipment and questions.
