We had a great time snorkeling and saw a lot of cool fish. You could actually see the oil in the water from sunscreen though. They sell the biodegradable kind there.

We were expecting more of a cenote experience with crystal clear water. The influx of salt water from the ocean creates poor visibility as the fresh and salt waters mix. There were a few fish but we weren't impressed by the numbers or variety. We enjoyed snorkeling in the cenotes and in Akumal Bay far more.

Go early, and if you can bring your own snorkel gear. The place with black letters have friendly English speaking people with lockers, bathrooms and showers and a neat short walk to the lagoon. 14 dollars to enter 3 dollars to rent a locker we brought our own snorkel gear. Lots of fish

Beautiful snorkelling here, we visited from Secrets Akumal on a bike tour! Worth a visit! Visit here earlier in the day to avoid the crowds!

Loved it. Went with wife and 3 ‘kids’ from 9 to 20 and all enjoyed it. Don’t swim out towards the sea. Head across the lagoon to the far side from where the steps walk you in. Lots of life teeming in the rocks at water’s edge over there. We wasted time batting rough waters and with fewer fish by swimming towards the sea. Seems like fish like the fresh water coming from inland better.
The facility was very nice and good (a tad slow) friendly service. We hit the one to the right as you drive in. They says the statues add to the ambiance and this is the ‘original’ place of the 2. Once you hit the water, they’re probably really similar. This place was a welcome new adventure away from seaweed-littered beaches nearby. Reasonable cost, too.
