I highly recommend Garrafon de Castillo for beginner snorkelers! Great visibility in five feet of water, a great lunch & chillin’ day trip on Isla Mujeres.

Such a great place! It's only $70 pesos per person for access to the beach, beach chairs with umbrellas, shower and bathrooms. This is the only beach that you can really swim at on the south end of the island. Plus bring your snorkel mask...More

$5 usd or 70 pesos gets you a day pass to use their beach chairs and umbrellas. Water is beautiful and inviting. Iguanas lounge all over the grounds while you take in the impossibly blue water. Only drawback I found - between the hotel's guests...More

Amazing place to take the kids for the afternoon. Great snorkeling, lots of critters to be found. Cheaper than the bigger one up the street.

Yes, used mask, mouth piece and flippers (the flippers for an extra charge, but I don't think it was too much). Next time though, we'll probably take our own - at least the mouth piece.
