Soliman Bay is unique to most of the Yucatan coast as it is protected by the reef that runs right along the mouth of the bay. This protects the bay from big waves and creates the perfect setting for snorkeling, kayaking and swimming. The guests at Nah Uxibal, www.nahuxibal.com, and along the bay return year after year to enjoy this tropical paradise.
You see a big variety all around the bay, but especially around the coral heads where the fish hide and live. If you kayak out to the reef and tie up to the buoys, you will see a even more fish along the reef. Be careful about rip currents and be aware of the tides. Always wear a life jacket to be safe! We wear long-sleeved shirts to protect us from sunburn and keep our bodies warm when snorkeling. If you kayak out to snorkel, take a mesh bag or string to tie your paddles and gear on. Many a paddle has floated into shore, and countless flippers and masks are lost when getting on and off the kayaks.
