About Robert Gomez

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.

Great gate away to paradise!

  • 5 of 5
If you enjoy just sitting hearing the waves taking it easy as if time just stand still or enjoying an under water adventure with the company of people that let thing happened because it seems they done it a million times before but with hints that something new will be discovered, then this is the place to visit.
When visiting ask them to make you the house speciality Lion Ceviche better then michelin restaurant.

Wonderful stay with lots of local flavor

  • 4 of 5
Our family and family friends spent 5 nights at this wonderful diving lodge. We wanted the opposite of a large resort and this place was exactly what we hoped for. The layout was cool. There were areas where we could hang out with the group eating our meals, reading, playing cards or other games. And the separate casitas provided us with time away from the larger group. Robbie gave us our choice of menu - we had asked for local food and lots of fruits and vegetables and no "American food". We were rewarded with local Mexican dishes carefully prepared with fresh ingredients. It was very good - this was no Taco Bell! We probably didn't need as many dishes as they served - clearly our hosts were aiming to please. The deck just a step up from the beach was my favorite part of the lodge. A wonderful view of the blue/green water framed by two palm trees. Our casita had two bedrooms and a bathroom. There was plenty of space, but I would have appreciate more ambient lighting. Robbie and his family were warm, friendly hosts who took us all diving. Most of us were first time divers and we had a great time.

excelent holidays

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I decided to take a vacation in the Mexican Caribbean, and a friend recommend us Diving Lodge Puerto Morelos.

It is a beautiful hotel next to the beach which is run by its owners Luis and Isabel. We spent a fabulous week with excellent dives in Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen. Mexican food is prepared by the cook Elvira.

We highly recommend Diving Lodge for a great vacation, either to rest or to go scuba diving in amazing places.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5
All descriptions and photos were very accurate. The lodge was very clean and taken care of. Robbie, son of owner Luis was very responsive to all of our emails prior to booking. We were concerned that there were no reviews and found out later that we were the first ones to visit through VRBO, fortunately everything worked out perfectly. We asked for our meals to be included at an additional cost. They ware able to accommodate us with authentic, Mexican cuisine, prepared by the Owners and Elvira, a local woman. We had food allergies and a vegetarian and everyone was taken care of. Ask for that as an option There is a well equipped kitchen if you would like to cook your own meals.
We were two families with teenage boys. Plenty of room for everyone. A common area was great for dining, games, reading and playing pool. The terrace was a great place to get out of the sun and swim in the pool. The private beach was steps away with a volleyball net. Snorkeling (for 8) and dive lessons (for 2) were included in the price. The small boat was captained by Jerry with help from Lalo. They were there every day taking groups from other hotels out to snorkel and dive.
The town of Puerto Morelos was a short drive away, a small, less touristy town than Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
We were first time divers and concerned with going to an unknown dive lodge but the lessons in the pool then first dive to the reefs (15-20 ft) was very safe. Some of us took additional dives the next day (to 30 feet).
Robbie also organized a driver to take us to Tulum and Playa del Carmen. Ask for Francisco, he was wonderful. Tulum was 2 hrs. south.
This dive lodge is not for people looking for a high end resort. However, if you are looking for an authentic Mexican vacation with local, friendly people, then this is the place to go. We felt like we were visiting family. We hope to visit again!
