Snuba® Reef


Board a comfortable boat and enjoy a relaxed tour to the Barracuda Reef, near the coast of Xcaret.

Upon arrival, immerse yourself and admire the reef with the Snuba® technology, consisting on a snorkel-like visor and a diving regulator, with the difference being that the oxygen tank floats on the surface. This allows you to move freely and appreciate the beauty of the Barracuda Reef.

Dive at your own pace, with the advice of expert instructors who will teach you everything you need to know to practice this activity that is among the best things to do in Playa del Carmen.
