“Wonderful for snorkelers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Crystal clean water, great snorkeling and enough to explore to make it a few hours of a day! We loved swimming in between the large rocks and looking at fish. Highly recommended!

“Amazing Snorkeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Such a good experience snorkeling in these lagoons. There is so much under water beauty to see, a good place to spend a full day enjoying. The waters are very calm and tranquil. I loved it.

“great day trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

had a wonderful time snorkeling here lots of fish and cool rock and coral formations to swim through. it was a short cab ride from akumal beach resort and well worth it. all i would recommend is bring water shoes or rent a palapa to leave your shoes at because it is a little bit of a rocky walk. Make sure to bring a underwater camera because there were a lot of great photo ops.
