Another option for snorkeling and/or diving is the local cenotes. Cenotes are fresh water pools that originate from underground rivers. They come in many shapes and sizes, and have clear, cool water. Some are great for swimming and snorkeling, and others you can explore with guides with scuba equipment. These water-wonders are located both in the jungle and near the ocean, and may be private or public.
Fishing is also available in the area. There are several boats for hire just up the beach from our Villa. Additional boats can be found in Akumal and most beach locations.
