Laguna Yal-kú (Yal-kú Lagoon)

Laguna Yal-kú (Yal-kú Lagoon) Review

Devoted snorkelers may want to walk or drive the unmarked dirt road to Laguna Yal-kú, a couple of miles north of Akumal in Half Moon Bay. A series of small mangrove-edged lagoons that gradually reach the ocean, Yal-kú is an eco-park that's home to schools of parrot fish in clear water with visibility to 160 feet in winter and spring. Entrance is $10 and you can rent snorkeling equipment in the parking lot for $10, a life jacket for $6, and a locker for $2. Sunscreen is not allowed, so bring a T-shirt to keep from getting sunburned.
