SNORKELLING MEXICO

What makes Mexico such a popular place for snorkelling and diving is the combination of soft brilliantly white beaches coupled with the excellent visibility in the warm and clear Caribbean waters.
The world’s second largest barrier reef runs parallel to the coast and offers superb diving and snorkelling excursions and The Riviera Maya is rated one of the best snorkelling and scuba diving locations in the world with miraculously colourful reefs and a spectacular variety of sea life.

Each hotel can arrange a number of snorkelling and diving excursions to meet your needs but here you can also with dolphins. This can be done as part of a group or private session making this an ideal location for couples or families alike. You’ll have a hands-on experience up close and personal with these magnificent marine mammals which include jumping, hugging and even kissing the dolphins!

BEST PLACES FOR SNORKELLING IN MEXICO

Mexico’s Yucatan coastline sits opposite the northern part of the barrier reef that runs from Mexico down to Honduras. Although not quite close enough to kayak to from your hotel is near enough to be able to do 2 half day snorkelling trips to the reef in one day.

This is also one of the few places in the world where you the opportunity to swim with dolphins

Holbox Island

Located to the northwest of Cancun, Holbox Island is separated from the mainland coast of Mexico by a shallow lagoon, which gives sanctuary to thousands of flamingos, pelicans and other exotic birds and creatures.

Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya boasts some of the best beaches in Central America with hundreds of miles of wide beaches and inviting shallow turquoise waters. The soft, powder sand is a brilliant white and the clarity of vision in the warm and clear Caribbean is superb. 

Tulum

The setting of Tulum is simply stunning with a compact group of Maya-Toltec temples perched on coastal cliffs above the turquoise Caribbean Sea.  Tulum was built in the 12thcentury and these were troubled times in the Mayan world as reflected by its defensive wall and watchtower, rare in other sites.  Despite the beautiful sunrises from here, each doorway faces west and the site is dedicated to the worship of the Falling God or Setting Sun.
