Yal-Ku Lagoon is a stone's throw from Akumal Beach and is a good spot for beginning snorkelers early in the day (before the daytrippers from cruise ships or other resorts get there) or late in the day (after the daytrippers have left). Parts of the area still have a wonderful variety of fish and it is not an overpriced theme park (like Xel-Ha or Xcaret). The water is a mix of fresh and salt, so there are areas where it appears a bit "greasy", but by and large it is a good experience. They do not permit sunblock, so take a T-shirt to protect yourself from burning.
