We are staying at the GR solaris on May 20th (our first trip to cancun!) and I am curious about the snorkeling situation. I read on here that there is decent snorkeling near Punta Nizuc. I know, it's not the best, but since it is fairly close to the GR solaris, I was wondering if we could just walk down the beach to this location and do snorkeling on our own. I would prefer to do something like this rather than take a tour with a group of people.
Also, does the hotel rent snorkeling equipment or should we just buy some before we leave?
Thanks for your input!
