Kukulcan Punta Cancun
is an easy way to see the underwater sights; you donít need a lot
of equipment or training. There are a number of excellent snorkeling
trips offered in Cancun and along the Riviera Maya coast. Favorite
spots include Isla Mujeres, Puerto Morelos, Cozumel, Xel-hŠ and
Akumal. Snorkeling tours should provide you with good quality mask,
fins and lifejacket.
To make sure your mask will be airtight hold it on your face, breathe
in and take your hands away. The mask should stay on your face.
To clean your mask and avoid fogging, spit into it the plastic eyepiece,
rub the salvia around and then rinse with ocean water. When putting
the mask on, move all hair away from your face. The snorkel piece
should feel comfortable in your mouth and the fins should slip on
easily not putting pressure anywhere on your foot.
Since you canít wear any sun block while snorkeling (itís toxic
to all marine life) remember to wear a t-shirt to protect your back
and behind. You can get a nasty burn in a very short time from the
sun reflecting off the water. Shiny objects such as jewelry and
watches can attract the curious barracuda so itís best to leave
them off. Avoid standing or sitting on the coral reef Ė itís very
delicate and once broken takes years to grow back. Never take anything
from the ocean and donít feed the marine life. If you plan to take
photos with an underwater camera make sure itís secured onto you
so it doesnít end up at the bottom of the reef. Your snorkeling
guide will offer you some other tips to help make the whole experience
go smoothly and will stay with your during the tour pointing out
interesting sights on the reef. Most tours include transportation,
lunch and drinks.
