Best thing to do in the Riviera Maya- educational, spiritual, and just plain fun! This area is still so preserved and precious- only use biodegradable products before entering the water- it is a ecological biosphere.

Our guide Abraham was first class. Knowledgeable,friendly and looked after us well while snorkelling. The rain gear he provided came in useful! Wonderful bird and marine life. The only downside was poor lavatory accommodation.
