What's included?

Snorkel in Yal-Ku lagoon: a little piece of heaven!


  • Find yourself surrounded by many different colorful fish!
  • Enjoy a relaxing time floating with the slow current.
  • Observe closely the abundant marine life.
  • Learn about brackish water and haloclines.


This tropical lagoon was naturally made by the encounter of two different waters: the blue salt waters from the Caribbean Sea and the clear fresh waters of the underground-rivers. This is a limestone inlet surrounded by mangrove where the tropical fish find food and shelter. A true Paradise for snorkel & nature lovers!



Yal-Ku is located 30km (20 miles) away from Playa del Carmen towards the south. And it's only a 10 minute drive away from Turtle Bay.
