About You and The Akumal Dive Shop...

Ingrid Datica

My job function in the company:
Marketing Director

About The Akumal Dive Shop:
The Akumal Dive Shop, with over 35 years’ experience, is the first dive shop and PADI 5-Star facility on the Mexican Caribbean Coast.

Tell us about your dive club or any fun promotional activities you do for local divers:
Thousands of PADI student divers of all levels have successfully graduated with us—from introductory diving to SCUBA instructor and various other professional certifications. In addition to offering the best recreational diving and all-level training courses, we specialize in a range of water sports and activities, available for all ages, such as snorkeling in crystal-clear cenotes, deep-sea fishing, and catamaran sailing cruises. Lastly, we provide accommodation or convenient dive packages, which include villas with spectacular ocean views.

Your advice for someone wanting to open their own dive shop:
The Akumal Dive Shop’s longstanding reputation is the natural result of professionalism (e.g., skills, methods, character, and standards), quality of service, and well-established diving traditions. Therefore, define what’s important from the start, prioritize, and don’t lose sight of this… passion can facilitate it and make the whole endeavor more enjoyable. Remember, where there’s fun, there’s success.

Where I see the business in 5 years:
Akumal and its surroundings are increasingly recognized as world-class scuba diving and travel destinations; therefore, our multifaceted business is gradually adapting and growing to accommodate the surge of national and international travelers from all walks of life. In 5 years’ time, the Akumal Dive Shop will have developed a more solid reputation as a world-renowned dive shop with a service par excellence.
