A lot of fish, mainly shoals of sardines. There is a current, so I regretted not hiring fins. Like the cenotes, sun lotion is not allowed, so if you want to avoid sunburn, invest in eco friendly sun cream, or cover up. We enjoyed the...More
Cool, clean, gorgeous waters with lots of beautiful fish. We snorkeled into the biggest schools of fish I'd ever seen (these were sardines, but they were still super cool). This place is a nice change of pace from the ocean snorkeling; you see different types...More
Yal ku is basically and inlet where an underground river enters the sea and fresh and salt water mix. There are shaded areas to sit, toilets, lockers, changing rooms and a restaurant. Husband and I have just spent five hours here. We arrived at opening...More
After visiting Dos Ojos we went to see Laguna Yal-Ku.
We didn’t really know what to expect, but the place was nice and not busy with tourists at all! There where so many colored fish in the lagoon! There are turtles as well, but we...More

To answer numerous queries simultaneously: This lagoon is geographically removed from the Gulf, so seaweed is NOT an issue. The wind does NOT seem to affect the turbidity of the water in the lagoon, (bus tours of tourists however will definitely affect the clarity of the water). My wife and I have done Quintana Roo numerous times, so we NEVER do excursions by tours. Save yourselves a lot of money, and have the fun and satisfaction of doing tours on your own time, while saving a lot of money by booking taxis, etc. on your own. We have taken numerous "collectivos" through many trips. Totally safe, dirt cheap. Hasta Luego!
