Cancun reef snorkeling (first area):

El Meco coral reef has only 8-12 feet depth, warm water, and few or non-sea currents. With plenty of coral and playful fish schools, this is one of the best spots to enjoy snorkeling in Cancun itself. You may enjoy the first turtle encounter in this area!

Cancun Underwater
Museum (second area):

You have probably heard about the “Cancun snorkeling statues“. We’ll visit 2 galleries: "The blessings" and "Aquarium Family". The Underwater statues creators used a new technique and material for coral to grow on (made with pH-neutral cement, coral, seaweed, and algae are able to grow). The statues also have holes in them, which allow marine wildlife to colonize and feed off the coral.

Swim with turtles Cancun (third area):

Our secret spot to find sea turtles in Cancun! 96-98% of the times we got to see from 1-5 turtles! We might also find rays here. When was the last time you had the chance to swim with marine turtles on their natural habitat?
