Are you hoping to have the best experience snorkeling in Cozumel? Then follow these tips, and you’ll have a memorable time during your Mexican Caribbean vacation!
All you need are basic swimming skills
First of all, because of the variable weather conditions in the zone, you’ll need to know how to swim without a life jacket. While it’s necessary to wear your vest at all times, actually knowing how to swim will be best for snorkeling in Cozumel.
Relax and enjoy
Since some people feel very anxious breathing through a snorkel, don’t worry. Probably it’s because they’re first-timers or have no experience at all.
Hence, take your time if you’re starting out. Adjust to the sensation of breathing through your mouth before dipping in completely. Additionally, follow these beginner tips and lose the fear!
Float underwater and start kicking softly with your fins. It’s really important to keep your legs straight! Avoid using excessive force when kicking and keep your arms on your side. As a result, you’ll save energy and take longer to get tired.
Inhale and exhale
Furthermore, avoid an excessive use of force. So control your breathing and enjoy the wonders of the Caribbean as you float with tropical fish, rays, turtles and of course, the colorful coral reefs in Cozumel.
Keep the snorkel from filling with water
While most of the hot spots to practice snorkeling in Cozumel are really calm, water can get in your tube or mask. Consequently, it’s very important to keep them clean!
Yet all you need to do is exhale powerfully once, and the water inside the tube will shoot out as if you were a whale!
Finally, clean your mask by raising your face to the surface, slightly pulling the mask from the bottom.
