Sorry. I do want to do snorkeling, but I read MAZ isnt very good for that. Should I reconsider and go to PV or Cabo?

Well it seemed like miles and miles....must have been tired due to all the snorkeling. and yes, you are right, only one side has the beach, but you can start snorkeling at one end and end up all the way over to where the first bring you in on the boats. But of course, if you want serious snorkeling, i'd suggest going to the Caribbean side of Mexico and try Isla Mujeres or Cozumel.

If your primary interest is snorkeling, then Mazatlan is not for you. There are lots of great things about Maz, but snorkeling is not one of them.

When the water is just right, there can be as good of snorkeling as PV or Cabo, but that's not that often. Unlike those places, Maz is open ocean, not a bay, which stirs up the water a lot. If snorkeling is your goal, I would look to Cabo more than PV, and Cabo Pulmo is the best snorkeling in Cabo.
