The Diving Lodge is located just 4 kms. (2 ½ miles) from the small coastal town of Puerto Morelos, 18 kms. (11 miles) from the Cancun International Airport and only 34 kms. (21 miles) from Playa del Carmen.

A small and intimate ‘boutique-style' hotel, we are situated right on the Caribbean on a 16,000 square ft private property. Our 4 unique villas have a comfortable, by the sea decor and are nestled among the coconut trees just steps away from the white-sanded beaches of the Caribbean.

C a s i t a d e l M a r

This Villa has sentimental value as it was our first villa on the property and is our only two-story villa. Wake to the sound of the waves and a view of the ocean from your private balcony. The bedroom has a king-sized bed, a desk and a closet. Downstairs is a private bathroom and small kitchen with a small table.
Attached is our enclosed wooden terrace that serves as a guest library. Here, all of our guests can come and browse through our collection of books, movies, and games to enjoy during their stay!

A m e n i t i e s:

Our pool overlooks the beach and was built for the purpose of providing scuba lessons and the overall enjoyment of our guests. Guests can enjoy a drink from the bar as they relax in our lounge chairs, hammocks and poolside chairs. It is the ultimate beach hang out space!

Additional seating is available on the beach where guests of all ages can also enjoy sand castle building tools, and the use of a double kayak at no additional cost.

Visit our Padi-certified full service dive shop next to the pool. Here you can book snorkel and dive trips, dive courses, and other aquatic activities.

There are some popular restaurants we are happy to recommend in downtown Puerto Morelos (10 min driving distance) and neighboring towns such as Playa del Carmen and Cancun.

The Diving Lodge is a place to relax and disconnect from your busy life at home. The only phone service available is via cell phones, and the Internet is very basic. Our main focus is making sure our guests enjoy their time here to the fullest and that your stay with us is as comfortable as it can be.

Owner info

About the owner: Luis Gomez, a Yucatan Peninsula native, arrived to the small town of Cancun in August 1982, a place of white sands, turquoise beaches and opportunity. Always a dreamer and entrepreneur, Luis’s first business was a restaurant and bar, then a boutique, an ice cream shop called Los Pinguinos (The Penguins), and finally, in 1984 he launched his own Editorial Company, Dive Mexico, dedicated to the production and distribution of postcards, tourist guides, books and souvenirs. In the year 2000, Luis bought land in Puerto Morelos and began his dream of building a home away from home, beach resort and dive center. With the help of his girlfriend Isabel Maria, and his son Robert who both got their PADI Divemaster certification, “The Diving Lodge” finally opened its doors in 2012. It seems that it is an on going piece of art, as Luis is relentless with every detail and always enhancing and adding new decks, art and his personal touch as you can see in most rooms. In 2013 Luis’s daughter Briana and his son Robbie began to add to the amenities of The Diving Lodge by creating a yoga and meditation space, a bar and lounge, and a beach-front shop called, The Sand Traveler’s Boutique. Changing the approach from vacation rental to bed and breakfast, brother and sister are eager to provide guests with an unforgettable vacation experience.
