Snorkeling Advice- staying at Iberostar Paraiso Lindo-Akumal how far?

Jump to last reply

My wife and my 3 daughters and I will probably be staying at the Iberostar Paraiso
Lindo at the end of June.

My middle daugher and I love to snorkel and we are aware that there is no good
off beach snorkeling at the resort.

How difficult is it to get to Akumal from Iberostar Paraiso complex?
Should we ride the $4 "bus"?
Will they let us back on with wet towels and wet snorkel gear in tote bags?
Where is the best spot to enter the water- most variety of sea life?

Is there anywhere else we should go for good snorkeling?
Is it worth paying for a half day trip from the resort to a reef?
Should we try to get to Cozumel for a day and how do we go about doing that?

Many thanks in advance for your advice!! :-)
Mark
