My wife and I booked this excursion "turtles and cenotes" from our Sunwing rep at our hotel. We were picked up at the hotel and driven to Akumal beach to snorkel with the turtles. The guide was very pleasant and informed us about the excursion and what was provided (snorkel, mask and lifejacket) The turtles were present and numerous, very nice to see in their natural environment feeding on the bottom of the ocean. The one major downside .....we are avid snorkelers and brought our own gear, but we were forced to wear the lifejacket or told we could not go out on the excursion. I was very unhappy about this as the lifejacket prevents you from diving properly and my main purpose of the trip was to take underwater pictures...We were told that the lifejackets were absolutely mandatory by the government to avoid damage to the reef, however that didn't prevent the mexican photographers from not wearing them and trying to sell the pictures later...very annoying for an excursion we paid $75 for..
