The Great Maya Reef is the largest reef in the Northern Hemisphere, and plays host to a huge number of native fish and coral species. Scuba trips are widely available, and snorkeling equipment can be rented or purchased from almost any resort. For those who would prefer to avoid the open ocean, Xel-Ha natural aquarium is a freshwater snorkeling paradise.
