Enjoy a fantastic Snorkeling Tour in Puerto Morelos
The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, is the second-largest in the world, and runs parallel the Yucatan Peninsula where Puerto Morelos is located. This barrier reef is closer to Puerto Morelos shore, than any other area of the Riviera Maya. This is the reason why Puerto Morelos has become one of the best places to do snorkeling. https://www.canadatransfers.com/regular-tour/morning-snorkeling/ In 1988 this section of the reef became a protected area, currently known as Puerto Morelos Marine Park. It is illegal to swim out to the reef from the shore. To protect the reef, all snorkelers and divers must go out to the reef with accredited guides and pay 5 usd extra for a reef tax per person that goes directly to the conservation of the reef.
THE CENOTES IN PUERTO MORELOS:
Cenotes are sinkholes through limestone, leading to flooded caves and beautifully blue fresh water pools. There is a road of 41km/25miles from Puerto Morelos to Leona Vicario, which is a small and typical village. Along this path known as the route of the Cenotes, are located some of them to visit and enjoy snorkeling or swimming in its crystalline and fresh waters.
These are the names of some of them: Cenote Mojarras, Cenote Boca del Puma, Cenote kinha, Cenote Zapote, Cenote Siete Bocas, and Cenote Popol Vuh. Nowadays locals and visitors alike love the fact the Cenote’s water is cool, providing refreshing relief from the hot, especially on the humid summers.
For the Reef and Cenote snorkeling tour you can do it on a private service tour. https://www.canadatransfers.com/private-tour/cenote-and-snorkel/
