We stayed on playa Norte and took a golf cart down to the south side for a few hours of snorkeling. If you want world class snorkeling in deep water then go to Cozumel. This is a nice laid-back place to spend a few hours....More

We stopped to take a peak. The intention was to stay and snorkel but after checking out the water, it was too wavy and others mentioned the poor visibility. This is not one of the top 10 beaches anywhere. The facility looked dated. Washrooms clean...More

The "reef" consists of one piece of coral and a bunch of sunken barrels. Beach chairs, etc were fine. We didn't eat there.

We paid 70 pesos to access this tiny beach. This includes chair rental and an umbrella if they’re still available. The beach is very small with a concrete jetty on each side - so you really can’t go anywhere. There is some snorkeling but very...More

Doesn't open until 10:30am. Small beach area that is roped off from boats. Water entry is shells and pebbles, kind of painful. Water has pretty color. Snorkeling is a joke. Bathrooms are minimalist, no toilet paper, no toilet seat.

We where there with two small children. They offer snorkeling gear but we did not have the possibility to try it. The people that tried it saw a lot of fish. The beach is quite small but a lot less action than playa Norte. Friendly...More

Yes, used mask, mouth piece and flippers (the flippers for an extra charge, but I don't think it was too much). Next time though, we'll probably take our own - at least the mouth piece.
