where are good snorkelling areas?

Im looking for places with calm water and beach access..


Country: Mexico


undoubtedly, two of all my favorites places is in Yucatan. you know isla mujeres , cozumel , cancun or Cuatrocienegas Coahuila region had studied for NASA and many universities of the world.regards!!!
Although Puerto Vallarta, Cancun and Cozumel are some of the more famous spots for scuba diving, there are also some great spots off the coast of Cabo San Lucas and La Paz. Depending on the length of your Mexico beach vacation, you may want to take a day or two to explore all that diving has to offer. Day trips, as well as longer boating excursions, are widely available. Winter is by far the best season for scuba diving, as the highest number of sea creatures will migrate to the warm waters of Mexico. If you plan to dive during this time, be sure to book ahead, as tours do fill up. Whether you'll be taking your first dive or your hundredth dive, the scuba diving Mexico offers is truly world-class.
Well yep Ive snorkeling in Cancun and it is a great experience, near to Cancun is Isla Mujeres!! Just fantastic!
The Best Snorkelling is : Cozumel.

The pacifi side is very hard; the currents are too hard, Cancun is a great place, but you will need to travel in boat quiet of bit to snorkel, Playa del Carmen is nice too ( XEL-HA AND XCARET) big water parks, but if you want to discover the bigges reef in the world for diving or snorkelling called PALANCAR" VISIT Cozumel.

Check my web site under photos and videos you can see the marine life underwater or serach under youtube" dive with jimmy"

San Carlos and Puerto Peñasco in Sonora are easily reached by car, have calm waters and great beach access.
Go to cancun or merida
definetely Isla Mujeres and Cozumel,try also Holbox,chance to swim with the whale shark,is awesome
Definitely Cozumel, other spots i would recommend are Isla Mujeres, Xel-Há, and los Cabos. Hope this helps!
Well here in the Riviera Maya I would have to say Akumal, Isla mujeres, Cozumel and Holbox
But if you want my personal opinion the best place in México for mi is Cabo pulmo in Baja California Sur.
You won’t believe your eyes.
1 hour and 45 minutes from Cabo is the The Aquarium of the World. Also known as Cabo Pulmo. Cabo its self has great snorkeling as well.
I snorkeled in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, last year with sea lions. There is plenty of beach access in the whole area. However, I had to take a boat to take me to the sea lion area, but it was worth it. If you are flying Puerto PEñasco has a an international airport. If you are driving, it is located no more than a 4 hour drive from Tucson, or Phoenix, Arizona.
Check this please,

On the southern Baja area, Cabo Pulmo by far is the best. It is the only Live Reef in the southern Pacific waters. Also, in Los Cabos Chileno Bay, Santa Maria Bay and Palmilla Bay are the best for snorkeling and swimming.
