“Little Garrafon is on the Cancun Bay side of the island just a little further south than the big national park. The price is 60 pesos for a day of snorkeling at a protected cove. They serve simple food and good drinks plus provide all the gear for renting. One of our favorite spots for enjoying the day. ”
