Top Answers To Riviera Maya Travel Questions

It's very dive-centric, but one place that springs to mind is Scuba Club Cozumel, which offers unlimited shore diving on the reef just in front of the property. Better if you can spend some time under the water, but shore snorkeling here is certainly a possibility. They offer introductory scuba courses as well as more technical training if you're interested.

Basically any beach here is good for body surfing -- small but consistent waves. If anything, the waves might be too small. Most all-inclusive resorts have beach access. In Playa Del Carmen, you can access the beach right in town. Try Cancun or the east side of Cozumel for bigger waves, and don't pass up a trip to the ruins and beaches at Tulum.
