Snorkel clear calm waters in search of incredible marine life at Yal-ku Lagoon. Explore a beautiful coastal environment with an unusual underwater topography, showcasing exciting small caves and canyons that could harbor seemingly anything, from sea turtles to parrotfish. If you're new to snorkeling or have younger children, this makes the a perfect environment to learn, thanks to calm waters and depths not exceeding 4.5 m (15 ft). Be sure to bring your own snorkel, water, snacks and sun block, as you won't find any amenities onsite. A visit to Yal-ku Lagoon represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Akumal attractions planner to plot your vacation.

Admission 280 pesos + snorkel set (optional) 240 pesos (fins, mask and vest). Unfortunately, there was hardly anything to see (little fish) and the water was very cloudy. But I was allowed to fly after consultation with the drone, which made the lagoon a little better for me in the overall rating. Visually, the lagoon is really worth seeing and beautiful.
