Stingray Encounter


Enter the stingray sanctuary of the Mexican Caribbean; like their nurse shark cousins, this is a very friendly species to interact with. Swimming with stingrays is an adventure that you’ll never forget.

Begin your activity on a platform where you'll see them up from up close, feed them and even feel the softness of their fins. During the activity, a coach will guide you with very important information about the rays and their role in the marine world.

Next, you will snorkel in very clear and calm waters, ideal for admiring the way they move as if they were flying under the sea.

Enjoy this encounter in a natural paradise!
