    The Jet Boat

    This was one thrilling ride!!!! My fiancee and myself signed some little waier for a free beer ater the ride, meaning you are signing your life away,lol! Its a small waiver telling you, that Mexico isnt liable for your ass! But it was so worth it! This boat is quick as it skims over the water and does 360's, it whips and hangs corner like you wouldnt believe. This is a must do!

    wave riding for snorkeling

    by Kara01 Written Nov 13, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On one day of our vacation/spring break we went out on waveriders and did a bit of snorkeling. I think this was my favorite activity on this trip. The water was choppy and our guide was going fast. We had to quickly learn how to speed across the water to keep up. Very exciting. When we got to the desired location....it was beautiful. Mainly because I have never done anything like this before and I was a Biology major at my university. I was a little nervous when I saw the barracuda. I think they are harmless as long as you let them be.

    Breathing Observation Bubble Minisub
    A step between aqua trek (where you walk along the bottom) and scuba diving. No certification necessary. Includes a free video...though our video only lasted about 3 min. Recommend using a wet suit for comfort even if the water isn't that cold.

    Quintana Roo

    by gabriellefox Updated Feb 28, 2005
    Snorkel

    The coast of Quintana Roo is bathed by shallow, crystal-clear, green-blue waters, lined by beaches of fine white sand, punctuated by numerous coves, bays and islands, with a backdrop of lush tropical vegetation. It is here that Tulum stands, on a cliff, overlooking the Caribbean. The most important Maya archaeological site on the coast, it is 127 kilometers south of Cancun.
    Xel-Ha, is a breathtaking combination of jungle flora and fauna, freshwater (sinkholes), caves, and ocean splendor is guaranteed to please all five of your senses. Wander the jungle trails, snorkel to your hearts content, or take a nap on Hammock Island.

    Snorkeling Heaven

    by Chica_Blanca Written Apr 25, 2003
    Good snorkeling at the Camino

    Wherever and whenever you get the chance - snorkel! Even if you aren't the best swimmer, every snorkel tour outfits you with a life vest, so you can just relax and enjoy the undersea show. We enjoy snorkeling off the beach at our hotel. We've also done some of the popular tours, which we've enjoyed.

  • Deep sea fishing

    by lizlynch Written Feb 25, 2003

    It was our last day in Cancun and we wanted to catch some fish. Went out on a six hour trip and it was awesome! Caught loads of Barracuda and I landed a huge male Mahi-Mahi or Dorado. I thought my arms would break.
    On the journey back to shore, the captain allowed us to sunbathe on the bow of the boat with the sun beating and the Caribbean sea cooling us down. It was truly magical.

    A MUST MUST MUST if to take a local tour to the coral reefs and snorkle. Nice transportation, and excellent food at the site. Make sure to bring an underwater camera.
