This was a lot of fun. We saw a 6' turtle, as well as two smaller ones in their natural habitat, a stingray and a large barracuda. There was a lot of people however, and the snorkeling was mainly over sea grass and the water was murky. But we did see turtles!

Our guide was nice, but not very animated. We saw quite a few turtles but not much else and the beach was very busy. It might have been better to just taxi to Axumel and rent snorkel gear. The cenote stop was very nice and all the family enjoyed swimming in the cenotes.
