Riviera Maya is a coral-filled stretch of Caribbean coastline, famous for its warm turquoise waters and diverse marine life. Get to know the picturesque shores of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula with an insider’s boat tour, where you’ll watch for turtles on open water, snorkel with tropical fish, and take a dip in a secluded cove.

What to Expect

Your tour begins with a comfortable pickup from your Playa del Carmen hotel. Then, head to the marina to board your boat for an unforgettable cruise on the warm, open waters of the Mexican Riviera.

Your guide will give you a safety briefing, so even novice snorkelers will feel at ease as they hit the water. But, before strapping on your gear, you’ll feast on platters of fresh fruit while enjoying the views of the Caribbean coast and keeping an eye out for turtles and other marine life. At a secluded cove, join your guide as you plunge into the shimmering waters to get an intimate underwater peek at colorful corals and 22 varieties of tropical fish.

Head back to the boat for a tasty boxed lunch and a cool drink before sailing to a natural swimming pool nestled among sea coves. You’ll have plenty of time to splash around—or to simply lounge in the sun—before making your way back to the docks, where you’ll be safely transported back to your hotel.

Yes, we stayed at the Palace & the pick up was outside the colonial, so we hopped on the Barcelo shuttle. It was perfect, ENJOY!!
