If you love the sea and getting up close and personal with marine life… this information is especially made for you!
These are the must-do aquatic actvities in the Mexican Caribbean. Create unforgettable memories by trying a few with your friends or family members during your next vacation in Cancun, Playa del Carmen or the Riviera Maya.
Snorkeling and scuba diving are two of the most popular water activities in Cancun and surrounding area. Two of the best places to snorkel and dive are Isla Mujeres and Cozumel, two magical islands where you will find a colorful array of fish of various sizes and shapes, coral reefs and rays, sea turtles and other marine life. Cozumel is a world famous diving destination due to the face that the Mesoamerican Reef is just off shore. The most popular place to snorkel on Isla Mujeres is Garrafón Park, where you can also go kayaking, ziplining, or just lounge around by the pool all day.
Jungle Tours, which take place among the mangroves of Nichupte Lagoon are another fun water activity. You pilot your own small boat through Nichupte Lagoon and then out into the Caribbean to a coral reef to snorkel. Expect to see schools of tropical fish, sand sharks and rays.
A relaxing, fun and unique way to enjoy the Caribbean is from a rented yacht or catamaran. Go sport fishing or a simply enjoy a relaxing cruise with your family, friends or partner. If you’re lucky, you may see a dolphin or two while you gaze out over the turquoise blue water. Ask the capitan if you can go to Isla Mujeres and drop anchor at North Beach to work on your suntan.
