Plan on doing some tours, but wondering if there are places close to shore to explore on our own? Trying to decide if itís worth travel weight to haul our own gear to explore outside of tours.

Hey, only snorkeling that you would be able to do on your own while seeing a few stuff would be renting a kayak and paddling out to the reef. There are a few buoys that you can tie up on and do your own free snorkeling, in most cases you dont see not near as much as visiting Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley or Mexico Rocks but its still ok snorkeling.

Thanks Rush. Still leaning on bringing everything, but the fins. Just feeling like I'll be disappointed if I don't do it. Right now, tired of sub zero temps so all I'm thinking of is warm water and beaches.

Snorkel gear rentals run around $5-10 USD per day rental. Kayaks are about $15 USD per hour. You cannot kayak in the marine parks without a guide.

One Benefit of Snorkeling is the fact that little equipment is required, all you need is a mask, snorkel, pair of ďReef Shoes.Ē or sox, fins, and a lightweight inflatable life preserver, you can fit this stuff easily into your carry on luggage with minimal space consumption (I usually check my Fins on with my luggage). Fins are not always required and sometimes get in your way. Like in Xcalak at the Coral Garden Inn where we stay, we wade out quite a ways on sand untill we start to find Coral Heads at about Waist deep. Then we just put our faces in the water and lay flat watching the brightly colored fish swim about. Also, one can hear the waves crashing on the barrier reef fifty yards or so further out and if they feel more adventuresome can swim out to it. For that I would recommend taking fins.
