Acuatic Tulum. Our partner Dive Shop

Acuatic Tulum was founded in 1993 by Alejandro Alvarez Enriquez, a Civil Engineer better known as “Alex Alvarez.” At a time when Tulum was nearly virgin, Alex established his business on this most beautiful beach just a few meters from the Tulum Archaeological Zone. His vision was to share the unparalleled beauty of the Mexican Caribbean by offering diving and snorkeling tours. That vision became reality as he became the first provider of PADI recreational dive courses in Tulum. Today, Alex is a well known and respected cave instructor and a technical diver for the National Association for Cave Diving (NACD), Technical Diving International (TDI) and Global Underwater Explorers (GUE) and explores periodically with National Geographic and INAH. His most recent exploration and discoveries are detailed in the NOVA program, "The First Face of America".
