Underwater Maya Snorkeling Tour

    What to Expect
    You will start at the "lagoon", this is a sheltered bay with no predators, a beautiful reef with colorful coral formations and fish everywhere you look.

    Come and see it with you own eyes! When you will be thinking it can't get any better than this after swimming in a beautiful natural lagoon full with life, you will head to a fresh water Mayan "cenote". Cenotes, as called by the locals, are natural crystal clear fresh water holes in the middle of the Mayan jungle. Here, you will go snorkeling through a maze of stunning rock formations that took millions of years to form. You can even see fossils on the walls!

    The visibility in the cenotes is 100+ ft so it seems like you are flying and natural light comes through perfectly into the water forming beautiful curtains of light you can almost touch. Prepare to be in awe and take incredible pictures.

    After swimming in the cenote you will go to the jungle surrounding the cenote where you will see many jungle animals like spider monkeys, wild boars, deer, crocodiles and more.

    I was really looking forward to this trip. In some ways it more than lived up to expectations, in others it was a bit of a let down. The pick-up was flawless. Two people (guests) didn’t bother to turn up which delayed matters but that was hardly the fault of the trip. The bus

    Paulino, Dani, & Gio were our guides. From the time Chris picked us up at the Royal the trip was well planned. We took the ferry to Cozumel and from their took the boat to pick up the dive equipment. Then we got to experience three separate dives that were absolutely amazing!
