Do your PADI IDC in Mexico and join The GoPro Family
Take your PADI IDC with Angel Navarro and Jo Armitage in Mexico. Instructor Development Courses in Spanish and English
Angel and Jo (aka The GoPro Family) run PADI Instructor Development Courses (IDCs) in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. This area of Mexico is known as the Riviera Maya and has to be one of the best places to take the next step in your diving career and become a PADI Instructor.
The Riviera Maya and nearby Cozumel island is home to over 70 PADI dive shops and with year-round diving it’s a great place to be if you’re looking to get your foot in the door and kick-start your career. Direct flights from all over the world go to Cancun airport (less than an hour from Playa del Carmen) which means it’s also easy to get to.
The diving here is diverse, with Bull Sharks visiting Playa in the winter months, beautiful warm waters and coral reefs, plus the marine reserve of Cozumel offering breathtaking sea life and drift dives. And of course the area is famous for its unique cenotes – fresh water sinkholes in the middle of the jungle.
If you are choosing where to take your PADI Instructor Development Course, you will want to get value for money, and that’s what we can offer. Jo and Angel are both Platinum Course Directors and together have over 20 years’ experience of running IDCs. Most of the teaching is given by them during the course and so you benefit from their experience both in the classroom and in the water, with the tips and advice that they give to you. They will support you through the whole process to develop your skills and knowledge to ensure you have what it takes to become a safe and competent instructor of the future.
