Scuba & Snorkeling, Cancun

4.5
#2 of 68 in Wildlife in Cancun
Indulge your inner explorer with a snorkeling or scuba tour from Cancun that allows you to explore coral reefs, sunken ships, and underwater sculpture gardens while swimming alongside schools of colorful fish. Board a vessel of your choice--triple-decker catamaran, sailing boat, speedboat, or submarine--and take a thrilling journey into a marine wonderland, before climbing back onboard for a tasty buffet lunch. For an additional thrill, combine snorkeling with jungle trekking, swimming with whale sharks, piloting a BOB underwater scooter, or touring Mayan ruins at the Tulum archeological site. Most tours, both half-day and full-day options, include gear and round-trip hotel transportation.

Where to stay in Cancun

Cancun's accommodations cater to everyone from spring-break partygoers to distinguished luxury seekers. By far the most densely developed area for hotels is the boomerang-shaped Punta Nizuc-Cancun and the connecting Bulevar Kukulcan, projecting out into the sea and offering prime beach access. Among the stylish resorts, you can find expansive party hostels offering large swimming pools. If you'd like a more independent Cancun vacation, consider staying at one of the private rentals scattered along the coast.
