A snorkeling trip is a family favorite for a Puerto Morelos vacation and with good reason. The coral reef you can see offshore is part of the Mesoamerican Reef, the world’s second longest, and it is famous for its spectacular elk horn coral gardens and rich marine life.

When snorkeling you will spot schools of fish such as jacks, grunts, blue tangs, porkfish and Atlantic spadefish near the crest of the reef. Solitary species such as parrot fish and trunkfish seem unperturbed by the strange intruders to their world. Pairs of angelfish sail regally by and tiny rainbow-colored fairy basslets, squirrel, damsel and butterfly fish shelter among the corals. You may even be lucky enough to see rays, eels and turtles.

Local dive masters know all the best places in this protected National Marine Park for snorkeling. Ask your Concierge to arrange a trip for you.
