Is snorkeling better in Akumal or Puerto Moreles?

Jump to last reply

Hi. I'm staying in Playa del Carmen October 2nd. Due to time constraints, I need to select one snorkeling destination. I'm trying to choose between Akumal and Puerto Moreles for snorkeling. I would think that snorkeling would be better around Puerto Moreles since it's a national park and the coral more protected and part of a large reef. But this doesn't appear to be true because I can't find much information on the snorkeling??? There's much information out there about Akumal. In my experience, the best snorkeling has been in places with less snorkelers and more live coral. Since Akumal is such a big snorkeling destination, I was wondering if most of the coral is dead from all of the activity?
Can someone please tell me what they would recommend? I was hoping to hear from someone that has snorkeled both sites and can compare the two. To give some background, I've snorkeled St. Thomas, St. John, Bahama's, Florida Keys, Cancun, and Caymen.

Thanks so much!
