    After being in Mexiko for Christmas & NewYear 2012 I want to return to this great place.

    Last time I was married and with my family, we stayed in the Dreams Tulum and had a great dive operator there.
    Unfortunately the Dreams is not the best place for a single traveller...

    This time, I am divorced and single traveler (not looking for any party or new relationship yet) but looking for a nice place to stay, dive, meet people and have some relaxation.

    Any recommendations?

    P.S I am mid 40 and male so not a place for only young people pls:cool2:

    I did DSD with Maya Diving in Dreams Tulum several years ago and found them very good; however I hear they are no longer at the hotel.
    I have stayed in the Grand Palladium near Akumal several times and found it to be very good. I do not know what you are looking for but there always seem to be some unattached ladies around but it is not a "singles" resort. It is a large resort with a lot of activities but easy to get around and has an adult’s only pool.
    I really like the on-site dive shop there, Underwater Technical World aka Aqua Excursions, they are on facebook. They do three boat dives a day from the beach as well as day trips to Cozumel, Puerto Morelos and the cenotes. They will do night dives if there is enough interest. I never found a problem finding a good insta-buddy although I interviewed them first.
    I am hoping to go back again this winter if everything works out.

    Might want to consider making Playa del Carmen your base...nice beaches, a wide variety of hotels, and it's very easy to go out and socialize if you want. Most dive shops in Playa offer diving in Playa, Cozumel & the cenotes so have access to a wide variety of dive experiences. Lots of marine life to see including our winter visitors...the bull sharks! For hotels, there's the Playacar section if you are interested in large all-inclusives. If you prefer smaller hotels, there are many in town, both on and off the beach. For a small AI experience right in Playa, a lot of people like Hotel Mahekal (formerly Shangri-La) as well as Las Palapas. Both are pretty low key, on a nice beach in the northern section of the city. Have a great holiday in Mexico wherever you decide to stay.
