The Yucatan peninsula is covered in jungle, and in the past has been home to abundant wild life. All rivers are underground, but do occasionally surface in different size pools called cenotes – the water is spectacularly clear and cool. Take a jungle tour, swim in cenotes or go to one of several theme parks to see the colorful natural heritage of the area.
Xel-ha provides an unsurpassed snorkeling experience. At Xcaret you can see a stunning array of tropical birds, a butterfly park, an extensive turtle reproduction program, a fascinating reproduction of traditional Mexican cemeteries , and much more.
And swim with giant sea turtles at Half Moon Bay, Akumal, or with whale sharks off the coast of Cancun.
