From the moment we walked in the door at AquaWorld, we were impressed and had a great time! I highly recommend AquaWorld for all of your water sports fun! We were treated with the upmost respect and the whole crew was very professional. We will definitely make reservations with AquaWorld for some snorkeling during our next trip to Cancun!!!

Very good experience. The whole crew is superb, reassuring and attentive. We discovered the Cancun Underwater Museum, with masks and snorkels. Thank you to Samuel and his entire team for following us all along! Be careful, you will risk getting sick if you are not used to it… I still order strongly, you will not regret!

A great trip. Samuel and the captain made our excursion a wonderful, exciting, informative and unique experience. The underwater museum was breathtaking. The snorkeling was great. The sea life and corals were beautiful. This was truly a great memory for me and my family. It is not to be missed on a visit to Cancun.
