Snorkeling in Mahahual is Great!

I have had a lot of people in Merida, Playa del Carmen, and on this blog, ask me how is the snorkeling in Mahahual. I was thinking of doing a snorkel story today, but I realized I had already written one. Also I am kind of dragging today.
I spent all day yesterday in Bacalar and David Gustavo Ejido village. I got to see the Ejido farm land and meet with the village elders and discuss plans for developng the area into farm land. It was a long and exhausting day, but a very productive day, and I learned a lot. I will do a story on the trip and village in the next couple of days, but first I have a ton of photos to download. So today I am cheating and sharing an article from last year, but it does talk about snorkeling.
Snorkeling is on my mind today because I have some female friends I met in Merida coming down to stay with me this weekend, and I am taking them snorkeling, it is ther first time here. The seaweed is still bad, but it should not effect snorkeling out around the reef. Trust me if there is one thing you should do in Mahahual if you are here, is to go snorkeling.

I had to get this post in while it is still fresh in my mind. I am spoiled, compared to Mahahual, snorkeling in Playa del Carmen or anywhere else I have been on the Mexican Caribbean and Belize does not hold a candle to Mahahul. I went snorkeling today with some guys from Austria on the beach here in Playa del Carmen.

Austrian guys in surf, they gave up quick to. Austrian guys in surf, they gave up quick to.

It all started this morning when two Canadians from across the hall here, mentioned they were going to Akumal on a snorkeling trip today, and were leaving soon. I mentioned to the guys if you want to get in some good snorkeling, hop the the shuttle with them to Akumal. They said they would rather snorkel here in Playa del Carmen, if that…

    Which area in Mahahual is best for beach snorkeling out to the reef? We are looking at Pez Quadro and Almaplena Eco Resort for our small group so some can snorkel and the non-snorkelers could lounge at the beach….. but would take any other suggestions.
