About XTC

XTC Dive Center is a PADI TecRec Dive Resort and Professional Instructor Development Center offering the full range of PADI recreational, professional and technical diving courses.

Welcome to XTC Dive Center! We are a PADI 5* Instructor Development Center and PADI TecRec facility based in the sleepy fishing village of Xcalak, Mexico. Xcalak has around 400 residents and sits on the southernmost point of the Mexican Caribbean coast, near the Mexico-Belize border. We benefit from a beachfront position facing the Caribbean Sea, within Xcalak Reef National Park and only 36 nautical miles from Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve. XTC stands for “Xcalak to Chinchorro,” and we are the only dive operator serving both locations.

As a PADI 5-Star IDC and TecRec Facility, XTC is able to offer the full range of PADI recreational, professional and technical diving courses—everything from Bubblemaker up to Technical Diving Instructor. All of this is offered in a World-class dive training facility with dedicated technical diving facilities, in a remote and idyllic setting. What more can you ask for!

Our highly trained Dive Center staff include two PADI Course Directors, two PADI IDC Staff Instructors and one PADI Master Scuba Diver Instructor, as well as a multitude of incredible support staff as well. Our experienced staff are on hand to run the Tech diving and training programs, as well as the Technical Diving Instructor training program.


Quality training in a quiet "off-the-beaten track" location with purpose-built Tec facilities.
