Swimming is a magnificent method to see the variety that nature has brought to the Riviera Maya in Mexico. Many of the areas on this Caribbean side of the nation are viewed as the best swimming in Mexico.
From Puerto Morelos right down to Xel-Ha, this 62-mile/100-kilometer stretch of the sea presents cenotes, tidal ponds, islands, and the second biggest coral reef on the planet. You can locate your little piece of sea paradise, stay cool on a hot day and, sometimes, add to preserving this valuable piece of the coastline.
While we brought our veils, snorkels, and blades for swimming in Mexico, it isn’t fundamental. Numerous hotels offer them free of charge or a little expense. Pretty much every mainstream swimming scene rents them too, and if you take any visit, the hardware will be remembered for the cost. Life coats are not needed on open seashores (and don’t allow anybody to advise you unexpectedly). Yet, they might be required at intimate scenes and are suggested if you will be in the water for over an hour or going out into more deep waters.
So we should begin with our summary of a portion of Mexico’s best swimming districts, starting at Puerto Morelos and travelling south to Xel-Ha.
PUERTO MORELOS SNORKLEING
Found somewhere between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos is a little fishing town that has become a debut swimming objective and is known for its devotion to ecotourism. It is home to Parque Nacional Arrecife Puerto Morelos, which sits seaward on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef (otherwise called the Great Belt Western Atlantic Reef). This is an ensured sea save and will expect you to wander out with a coordinated visit administrator; you are denied from swimming out all alone. You’ll additionally be confined in your utilization of sunscreen (as referenced above) and be needed to wear a daily existence coat.
Cozumel, the island situated opposite Playa del Carmen, has some great swimming spots, both near and off the shore. You’ll discover great perceivability with clear blue water, a vast swath of ocean life, and the accessibility to swimming Cozumel all alone or with a visit. The Mesoamerican Barrier Reef reaches out through this part of the sea and is situated in the Parque Marino Nacional Arrecifes de Cozumel, offering extra swimming freedom.
We remained at a retreat on the island and had the option to swim directly off the seashore. In the same way as other on Cozumel, our lodging offered swimming visits that had all the earmarks of being very well known. Should you need to wander farther, there are various extraordinary swimming locales along the Cozumel coast.
Here are a couple of best:
Columbia Reef: This is a 5-star swimming site, available by boat or visit. You’ll see coral heads transcending the seafloor, just as a lot of marine life—both huge and little.
Palancar Reef: Located out in the sea, this reef will require a boat or visit. It is known more for its rough scene and transcending developments than its ocean life. The coral gives a source to some vegetation and bright fish, just as ocean turtles; however, you will amazement this submerged underworld. (On the off chance that you SCUBA, this is the spot to visit!)
Dzul Ha: This excellent white sand seashore is an extraordinary method to go through your day unwinding and appreciating some incredible swimming in Mexico. The reef is near the shore, and the profundity is generally shallow at 10-15 feet. It isn’t overly packed and be cautioned that there is no open bathroom on location. Notwithstanding, different eateries around to take a break and appreciate a feast or a beverage sitting above the Caribbean.

CAVERNS AND CENOTE SNORKELING
Cenotes (see-no-tays) offer a vastly different kind of swimming in Mexico than out in the Caribbean’s seawater. These sinkholes, which happen because of the encompassing limestone’s breakdown, become loaded up with freshwater. Cenotes can be outside (both close to the sea and inland) or inside and between caverns. Their waters are obvious, permitting you to see the fish and ocean life inside virtually. They usually have soft, rough bottoms instead of coral or a bounty of vegetation. Since cenotes resemble goliath pools, they might be the most straightforward to swim, and are ideal for amateurs.
Akumal is a public seashore where you can snorkel however much you might want. The seashore itself is beautiful, and the waters are warm and extremely quiet. We found that we didn’t require our blades. Some regions are weighty with ocean grass, so you should stay away from them, yet there are many fish, ocean life, and enormous ocean turtles. You’ll have the chance to swim with Loggerheads, Hawksbill and Green ocean turtles here in Akumal Bay. Along these lines, Akumal gets somewhat swarmed from early afternoon on, so attempt to arrive prior, so you have some an ideal opportunity to yourself.
It took me around 45 minutes to discover an ocean turtle. It was gigantic! An astonishing encounter and I’d strongly suggest looking at this spot! I shared photographs of Akumal Beach in a different post so try to look at it!
