With 34 years of passion for the underwater world and thousands of hours underwater with thousands of divers, David Mayor always enjoys sharing his experiences, his knowledge for the underwater world, and especially the underground world of Quintana Roo in Mexico.

 

My name is David Mayor. I was born in Toulouse, France. Following several business trips to Playa del Carmen in Mexico, in 2010 I decided to settle down permanently in Quintana Roo and offer my services as a cave diving guide and cave diving instructor.

 

I discovered scuba diving in France in 1986, and since then I have never stopped this wonderful activity. My passion for the underground environment began in 1992 when I did my first cave diving. This passion has never left me, and opened the doors of technical diving.

In 1998, after almost 10 years of diving, I decided to share my passion by becoming a CMAS Instructor and starting a professional career in scuba diving instruction. My growing interest in technical diving drove me to get my Tech and Trimix Instructor certifications, and then to create EASY TECH DIVING in 2004, a technical-oriented training school.

Since 2007 I have been devoted to guiding and training others in cave diving. That's why I founded CENOTE CAVE DIVING, specialized in high-level technical and cave TDI courses.
