Comments 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.
