riu snorkling directions

If you are standing facing the beach at the Riu, in which direction is the best snorkling?

When are jellyfish most prevalent during the day? Mornings?

If there are any jellyfish in a given area depends more on the direction of the wind and the currents than the time of day.

Hmmm, that's interesting - guess I should read up on that sort of thing. Something I don't want to encounter...

In the 5 times I have stayed there I have never seen a jelly fish.

Good to know - I like being in the water and snorkeling, but am always freakish of those.

Jelly fish are found in Jamaican waters...... mostly closer to Ocho Rios. They dont have a schedule, they can show up anytime. They are more popular after a bout of weather and mostly late evenings.

Thank you for your honest answer. The last time I was at Runaway Bay, what used to be Breezes, a guy was out swimming in the morning and came back with horrible, nasty stings along his legs. Just scared the hell out of me, about going out snorkeling again. And with the reef area close to this Riu, I really want to do some snorkeling, but worry about the jellyfish.
