Pristine Snorkeling — Protected From the Rough Sea
While there are many snorkeling options in the greater Cancun area, few are more unique or more breathtaking than snorkeling in Akumal in the waters of Yal Ku as well as the cenote in the area.
These beautiful, naturally-occurring bodies of water are found inland, tucked away from the currents of the sea. Unique in its geology and dazzling array of marine life, Yal Ku Lagoon offers a truly one-of-a-kind swimming experience.
On our Cenotes Tulum tour, you’ll get the opportunity to explore the popular cenote near Tulum firsthand with state-of-the-art safety equipment and the expert guidance of our tour leaders.
We’ll show you some of the most incredible and easily-navigable underwater caves while ensuring your safety at every step. We’ll also visit Yal Ku Lagoon, a large, shallow lagoon famous for its marine inhabitants.
About Yal Ku and the Cenotes of Tulum
Thousands of years ago, ocean levels began to drop to where they are today. The movement of water over centuries created holes and gaps in the landscape, some of which were close enough to oceans to retain water.
These connected yet mostly landlocked bodies of water are known as cenotes. The greater Cancun region is home to a number of popular cenotes famous for their natural beauty, incredible geologic formations (including easy-to-explore underwater caves), and abundant marine life.
Yal Ku Lagoon, one of the largest lagoons in the region in terms of surface area, is home to a wide range of wildlife and provides safe snorkeling in Akumal for swimmers of all ages. You’ll get the chance to snorkel at Yal Ku on our Tulum, Cenote & Snorkeling Tour here at Cancun Adventures. Learn more about all that our tour includes below, and book with us today!
