Our family will be in Akumal staying on Half-moon Bay. We have a 10 yr old and a 13 year old who have never snorkeled. We are going to Akumal specifically to have a "snorkeling" vacation. Any advice on:
*Beginner boat snorkel guide/tour of outer reef...afraid my 10 year old will get tired or scared swimming so far out initially...I know we can do it on our own but want it to be an easy fun experience the first time. would Half-Moon Bay be best for this?
*We want to do turtle snorkel tour, which outfit is best...again I realize we can do this on our own but it might make it easier more fun the first time to have some help getting out and finding them? This would need to be in akumal Bay correct?
*It seems even we could do Yal-ku completely alone...no tour ...if we have our own equipment
*If you were going to see a cenote..which would you pick? We do not need to snorkel...I would just like them to see a cenote that is really underground ..a lot look from the pictures like they are sort of above ground? Could be wrong here. We won't have a car so will need a tour to pick us up...any recommendations? My husband hates tours so less schlock is better
I think that is it...thank you so much...
