Snorkeling Excursion in Cancun

My sister and I will be in Cancun March 1st through the 6th and will be staying at the Riu Palace Peninsula. Looking to get a recommendation for a good snorkeling excursion, but not an all day tour that is close by, any suggestions?

If you are staying in Cancun, you probably don't want to come to Isla specifically for snorkeling (but there are many other reasons to come). The snorkeling on Isla Mujeres is not great. In fact, you'll probably find better snorkeling in Puerto Morleos, just about 15 minutes south of the Cancun airport. Go snorkeling one day and take another to come visit Isla Mujeres.

You can do the Jungle Tour which would be the closest, and is a 2 1/2 hr tour. You drive your own little speed boat to Punta Nizuc to snorkel.

Here's a link that tells more about it
