          Chetumal is closer, but as of this date only has connecting service thru Mexico City.

          Rates vary by room choice, as well as seasonal discounts in off-peak times. But social media is not the appropriate venue for availability questions, please contact us for individualized service.

          What is it like to swim from the beach? Looking at photos I see dark shades in the water and am wondering if it rocky or coral and tough on the feet.

          Not rocky or coral. What you see is turtle grass. It just goes 10-15 ft out then the water is clear all the way to the reef. Great snorkeling.
