Snorkel With the Locals

Snorkel With the Locals

June 01, 2014

And by locals, we mean the 500+ species of marine life that call the Great Maya Reef home. Parrot fish, sea turtles, manta rays, moray eels, dolphins and whale sharks...all swimming along the largest coral reef system in the Northern Hemisphere. Our friends at The Reef Marina are experts at finding shallow, crystal-clear waters for viewing the kaleidoscope of colors below. A favorite activity of Riviera Maya resort guests, the marina's guided snorkel tours take you to one of two special spots: the Moc Che, just north of Playa Del Carmen, or south to Inna. They'll provide everything you need to slip into the warm surf, including life a pair of fins, a mask and snorkel, so you can start meeting a few newfound friends beneath the shimmery surface.
