The best places to snorkel


Snorkeling is one of the best activities you can do in the Riviera Maya. We share our compilation of the best places to snorkel in Cancun and the Riviera Maya.


Approximately 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen you will find a true paradise with white sand, a coral reef and warm waters with abundant fish and turtles, the Akumal beach “Tierra de Tortugas”.

You can arrive by bus or rent a car if you plan a multi-day getaway.

Puerto Morelos

Dive the second largest coral reef in the world! Puerto Morelos is located between the tourist centers of Cancun and Playa del Carmen in the Riviera Maya. Its Arrecife National Park has many sites on the coast with millions of aquatic species, so they are ideal for diving activities and snorkeling tours.

Punta Nizuc

Popular for its coral reef, this place attracts divers and snorkelers from around the world.

The Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA) is based here and offers snorkelling and boat tours for its exhibits.
