Overview

A visit to Cancun and the Mayan Riviera is not complete unless you dip your head beneath the azure seas and meet the amazing inhabitants of the coral reefs.

The breathtaking abundance of exotic life and the crystal clarity of the sea make this area one of the world’s snorkeling and diving hotspots.

Take this delightful trip to Puerto Morelos and enjoy snorkeling in warm shallow waters close to shore. Strict environmental guidelines have kept this lovely reef unspoilt.

Go nose to nose with an astonishing array of tropical fish like the color-changing groupers and amazing invertebrates such as corals and sea anemones, jelly fish, octopus, crabs and lobsters.

Food, drink and transportation are included so all you have to do is enjoy yourself.

Itinerary

Enjoy some of the best snorkeling in Mexico on this Snorkeling Adventure at Puerto Morelos – Cancun.

The reef at Puerto Morelos is part of the Mesoamerican Reef, also called the Great Mayan Reef. This is second largest reef system in the world!

Puerto Morelos snorkeling is spectacular because the reef in front is declared a National Marine Park. Its usage has been strictly controlled and as a result is healthier than other reefs in the area. The reef is rich in marine life including many species of coral and fish.

At the start of the day you will be picked up from your hotel in Cancun. At around 9:00am you will arrive at Bahia Petempich and will be taken out by boat with an accredited guide for snorkeling at a shallow place. Later you will be taken to a deeper place.

Creatures you may see include groupers – which change their color to match the background, flashing from spots to stripes to solid colors as they move from sand to coral – plus rays, lobster, eels, nurse sharks, turtles and more.

Lunch will be provided at a beach club, after which you can relax on the beach before returning to the reef for one last snorkeling session.

At the end of the day, you you’ll be dropped-off back at your hotel.
