Seeing the turtles was the part of this excursion adventure that I was really looking forward to. We saw 7 turtles, 3 stingrays, fish, and coral reefs. It was so enjoyable and was totally amazing to be able to see these beautiful animals in their home environment. Booked this excursion as a half- day tour and was split with a... More

A must-do in Mexico! Only a 2 hour all round trip but we saw lots of sea turtles in their natural environment, rays and even a barracuda! The water was clear and turtle calm. Would really recommend this trip.

We booked a snorkeling tour from Bahia Principe property and it was well worth it!. We took a short boat ride to Akumal and we were not disappointed. The water was clear and in addition to different varieties of coral and fish we saw a lot of green turtles. We enjoyed the trip and we highly recommend it!

We brought our own snorkel gear to the public beach and just swam out and started snorkeling. Parking is $5. I don't recommend a guided tour as they take out throngs of people and you may not get a good view. However, don't feel bad if you do go on a guided tour since someone needs that money! Anyway the...

We heard about this beach and had to see for ourselves. We went to Akumal dive shop to rent equipment but were late in the day getting there and they were about to close. Instead I chose to buy my family of 5 snorkel gear. A little pricey but well worth it. One of the employees in the dive shop... More

This beach s free to the public just have your own gear or rent for a price and walk out and start snorkeling. I swam with three different turtles and saw some beautiful tropical fish. Next time we're in Tulum will do a day trip for sure.

Snorkeling with Fab was a joy. He made it a lot of fun and seeing the Turtles, Sting Rays and colorful fish was quite an experience.

This was one of our chosen activities when renting a car whilst staying at Tulum. Mask and snorkel rental can be done on the beach or at various shops before you get there. We chose the beach where for $25 pp, we got a guide and joined another family on a tour of the Bay. Well worth the extra $5... More
