Snorkeling Huatulco
by: Anonymous

I don't have a lot to compare it to (I have snorkeled in Riviera Maya and Antigua as well) but I loved the snorkeling in Huatulco. Hundreds of large fish, not a lot of coral. We hired a boat and he was able to show us stuff we wouldn't have found on our own and couldn't reach from shore. Saw turtles and dolphins on the boat ride. We also drove to a couple of spots and enjoyed swimming with hundreds of fish!

Snorkeling Huatulco
by: Anonymous

I have snorkeled in the Mayan, Antigua, California and Huatulco. Huatulco was my favorite. We hired a boat and also snorkeled from shore. The shore snorkeling was a real cultural experience. The beach was absolutely packed and we were one of the few non-Mexicans there. We snorkeled with hundreds and hundreds of fish at 2 beaches. They are both a short taxi ride away from the resort area. We saw turtles and dolphins on our boat tour as well as many other types of fish pointed out by the guide. No coral.

Snorkeled at Cades Reef in Antigua. Saw lots of colorful fish and coral that is starting to come back but was somewhat disappointed. Also snorkeled from the beach at Long Bay, just as good, more fish, less coral, and Half Moon Bay where I swam with thousands of tiny fish and saw a green eel.

Saw mostly turtles in Akumal, Mexico but loved snorkeling cenotes as well.

All are good, just different. Trying Hawaii and St. Lucia this year.

Jet Ski Snorkel Tour In Huatulco
by: Anonymous

Hi everyone. We did a jet ski snorkel tour when we were in Huatulco and it was a blast. We stopped at some small secluded beaches to snorkel, ones that the big boats could not reach. It was beautiful snorkeling, even better than in Cancun. The name of the company was Huatulco Watersports. Hope this helps. I highly recommend them!! Barb from Toronto.
