Best place to snorkle in Cancun

Are there any fish off the beach in the hotel zone?

There are snorkeling opportunity's but not many and usually very sub par off some of the Cancun beaches. Sandy beach bottoms almost always lead to poor snorkeling areas for those in search of marine life. The best area, a short distance off the beaches is the area at Punta Nizuc in the southern hotel zone.

Folks would do far better by planning an excursion to Isla Mujeres or Puerto Morelos nearby for snorkeling.

Do not forget Cozumel...Alittle longer trip,but there is snorkeling all over the island...Cancun has some interesting Cenotes to snorkle...As Dangers posted,Beaches and snorkeling do not belong in the same sentence...
