Full description
Spend the ideal half-day on the Caribbean Sea: combine snorkeling with turtles and a cenote swim for a fun day out in the sun. After pickup from your hotel in Cancun or Puerto Morelos, your guide will drive you the 1 hour to Akumal Bay, a natural habitat for sea turtles. As you gear up, your guide will give you an overview and explain the rules of interacting respectfully with the turtles. Then, it’s just a short swim from the beach to where the turtles are. Free of strong waves and cloudy water, this is the perfect location to admire the beauty and grace of these animals as they interact and feed on seaweed at the bottom of the sea. Along with sea turtles, you’ll have the opportunity to observe other wildlife that lives near the coral reef of the bay.  Your next activity is a swim in a beautiful cenote. Here, you can relax and enjoy the fresh waters of this natural swimming pool in the middle of the Mayan jungle.
