Riviera Maya Sights

Chan Yu Yum

Updated 04/16/2013

Fodor's Review

North of Tulum is a smaller bay, known as Chan Yu Yum, edging the Catalonia Royal Tulum. While it's marginally less protected than Omni Beach, it's also delightfully calm, with flat white sands melting into shallow waters great for snorkeling. Divers are likely to spot turtles, stingrays, toadfish, and perhaps even a nurse shark. Underwater currents can make diving a challenge here. Amenities: none. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.
