Riviera Maya half-day snorkeling excursion and private beach club in Puerto Morelos. The best day of your vacation awaits.

This exciting half-day excursion from Cancun and the Riviera Maya begins in the early morning when you’re picked up at your resort and warmly welcomed by your friendly driver. You’ll be taken to Petempich Bay, bordering the southern tip of Cancun, for a Puerto Morelos snorkeling adventure at the gorgeous Coral Reef National Park.

Settle into the private Puerto Morelos beach club vibes and get your masks and fins ready for an underwater adventure that will change your life. This is one of the best places in the world to snorkel, the Mesoamerican Reef which stretches from Cancun in the north to Honduras in the south is an immaculate setting of natural beauty. Snorkeling in a protected area is an immersion in truly spectacular eco-systems of multiple types of corals, marine plants, and of course, tropical fish!

A Riviera Maya snorkel excursion to explore two unique reefs and make lots of fishy friends

You’ll depart from the Puerto Morelos beach club on a small motorboat with an expert captain and crew. Your guide will instruct you on how to snorkel and get the most out of your underwater journey. Group sizes are extremely limited to ensure that you have personalized service and attention to maximize your experience under the sea.

The first stop on your Puerto Morelos snorkeling adventure will be at one of the shallower reefs for just under an hour, and then it’s onward to a second, deeper reef. These barrier reefs are home to more than 65 species of coral, and more than 500 species of fish. Not to mention numerous endangered and protected species such as the gracious and elegant sea turtles of the Caribbean.

Unwind and refuel with a buffet at your private beach club in Puerto Morelos

After your sensational snorkeling excursion, you will have worked up a hearty appetite and thirst! It’s time to indulge in a delicious buffet and open bar at your private Puerto Morelos beach club. Did you know that Mexican food is a designated “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” by UNESCO? Dig in and refuel with the delicious flavors and freshest ingredients of Mexican cuisine by the sea.

Find the idyllic spot under a palm tree and sway in a hammock for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Feel the sand between your toes as you sip an icy cold drink and soak in the peace of the tropical sunshine. Listen to the sounds of the waves and watch the clouds float by, smell the salty sea and feel all your stress just melt away. Try a delicious “michelada”, a favorite cocktail of locals with a mix of cold beer and spices, or go traditional with a margarita on the rocks with lime and salt on the rim. Salud! Cheers!

At the end of this half-day Riviera Maya snorkeling excursion, you’ll be transferred back to your resort with memories of a delicious experience. You’ll never forget the Puerto Morelos reef and being pampered at a private beach club in paradise.
