Cenote Snorkeling in Cancun — Experience the Cenotes Firsthand

When most people think of snorkeling in Cancun, they likely think of the beach. After all, most snorkeling excursions take place in shallow ocean waters just off the coasts of tropical hotspots. But Cancun is no ordinary tropical destination.

This magical region is home to a number of cenotes, natural sinkholes filled with pristine water, that offer a truly one-of-a-kind snorkeling experience from inland destinations. On our tour, you'll get to swim in subterranean reefs.

You'll get see and touch stunning rock formations, and visit the famous Yal-kú Lagoon in Playa del Carmen. For a truly unique type of snorkeling in Cancun, this is the tour for you.

All About the Cancun Cenotes

Millions of years ago, much of the Yucatan Peninsula was covered by ocean water. As ocean levels decreased through the Ice Age to the modern-day, the water receded to leave behind the peninsula we know today. This great movement of water led to massive erosion and the creation of cave systems and sinkholes connected to the sea.

If you know where to look, you can find bodies of seawater hidden within the land of the Yucatan Peninsula just outside of Cancun. These are the Cancun cenotes. Many of these amazing underground water sources feature truly breathtaking cave formations.

Others harbor a rich variety of marine life. By taking our Cenotes & Snorkeling Tour here at Cancun Adventures, you'll get to experience these natural wonders firsthand.
