Catamaran Excursion Photos!

with snorkeling and natural pool visit

Living from Paraiso Beach, this is the absolute best catamaran snorkel cruise in Playa del Carmen, including unlimited beverages with or without alcohol on board and during the extended visit an ocean natural swimming pool. Snorkeling in Playa del Carmen is always a must on any ocean lover his bucket list, but this is even better because it combines snorkeling with a great Playa del Carmen coastal cruise aboard our brand new very stable catamaran. And, to top it all up a visit to a natural pool. The catamaran also has the advantage of leaving straight from the hotel beach in front of our Paraiso Beach dive center to slowly cruise along the coastline offering amazing view from out at sea on to the splendid coconut tree beaches here and there dotted with impressive hotels. In the other direction you can also distinguish Cozumel Island.  Our first stop is of course a renowned reef for snorkeling, populated by many species of tropical fish and corral gardens that welcome you as if another fish. From there we cruise on to the next attraction, a stop in a natural swimming pool, were you can simply wade and bathe, or walk around in waist deep water, while holding a drink. Enjoy this 100% natural moment in the midst of amazing water and views. We then board again to cruise back to the dive center, enjoying the views roll by with a cup full of drink and a mind full of incredible memories build up during this trip. Whether are alone or with friends and family this is the ideal get away from your hotel beach and pool routine, onto and into the blue ocean.

Daily Snorkeling Trips from the Iberostar Quetzal & Tucan Resort

We go out twice a day to the Inah reef. After a very enjoyable boat ride of about 15 minutes, along the beautiful coastline of Playa del Carmen, we arrive at the Inha Natural Reserve.  Known for its extensive coral population, one enjoys drifting over its fan corrals, brain corrals and sponges in search of the many colorful fish including the butterfly fish, angel fish, parrot fish, yellow tail, grouper and Barracuda.

Daily Snorkeling Trips from the Iberostar Paraiso Resort

Every morning at 10 and in the afternoon at 3 our comfortable snorkel boats head out to the amazing Punta Maroma reef. The direction is south, and for ten minutes we enjoy the view of the coastline. Once at our destination, we gear up and get ready for action! Forty five minutes of snorkeling in the crystal clear shallow waters of Punta Maroma will completely relax your mind with an overview of eels, octopus, all types of coral and colorful fish, sting rays and turtles!
