Our first experience snorkeling anywhere was in Akumal Bay and we lucked into having Marie as a guide! Her love of the area and joy are evident as is her knowledge of the wildlife in the area. We stuck close to her so we wouldn't miss anything and we didn't!!! I actually came face to face with a barracuda!!! We saw many turtles and so many fish that she seemed to know the names of every one! Our underwater camera had died and we were able to buy a dvd from the dive shop for just $28 with photos taken by a local diver who swam with us... great pictures and we were not disappointed! We truly appreciated the fact that Marie cared so much for the environment and watched the movements of our small group as well as the actions of the others. The Cenote was serene and nothing that can be explained but must be experienced! Again, Marie's knowledge of the history and importance of these magical places was astounding and the experience left us in awe and excited to return! I got to see a Mot Mot and her description of them was brilliant! When we went to another Cenote on another excursion we saw another and knew exactly what we were seeing because of it!! She had books on local wildlife and plants/trees and taught us more than we could have hoped! We even shared a butterfly moment that was glorious! :) We left feeling as if we had made a friend and will go back for another adventure for sure! If you only have one snorkeling trip to take...make it this one!
