Tulum Ruins

The calm, clear Yal-Ku Lagoon is perfect for beginner snorkelers. Multi-colored tropical fish are everywhere – if you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of the huge king-parrot fish – along with interesting coral formations. The lagoon’s mixture of fresh and salt water is wonderfully refreshing after a long day at the beach. Yal-Ku is a very special ecosystem, so please help to protect it by not wearing sunscreen or feeding any of the fish. Price includes round trip transport, guides, snorkeling gear and entrance fees where applicable.
