NileGuide Expert Says:
Best, least crowded place to swim and snorkel.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Bring your own snorkel equipment.
This lagoon is like swimming in a tropical fish tank with big limestone formations. The lagoon itself is public property but there are a few land owners that have access points. One such owner has opened his entrance to the lagoon to the public and charges $110 pesos for the privilege. He also rents snorkel equipment and has a small snack bar. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Around the shore of the lagoon are tables and areas with inspiring sculptures, where you can spend the day reading, eating and playing around the water. It's a great way to spend a day with the family. The lagoon is at the end of the Akumal Playa road.
