Playa Del Carmen Snorkeling

The 23rd most popular snorkel dive spot in Mexico.

South of Cancun on the eastern tip of the Yucatan, the snorkeling at Playa Del Carmen is not known to be very good since most of the coral is dead. With that said, the best of the Playa Del Carmen snorkeling can be found off Coco Beach.

After a long day of snorkeling, try heading to the Mamitas Beach Club or the Canibal Royal Club in North Playa del Carmen.

To reach the snorkeling in Playa Del Carmen by air, you will need to fly into Cancun International Airport (Aeropuerto de Cancun - CUN). Many of the high-end beach resorts have an airport shuttle van, otherwise it is recommended to take a taxi. Renting a car to drive around can be hazardous do to the potential for unwarranted police stops resulting in required immediate cash payments.

Note: while snorkeling here, keep in mind that from November through March you might encounter bull sharks right off the beach.

Overall, Playa Del Carmen is the 23rd most popular snorkel dive spot of all 40 snorkeling dives in Mexico.
