The water beckons!
Shells are in large supply as are water sports, including snorkeling. The world's second largest reef is within snorkeling distance, and while the boy and I frolicked at the beach, the husband snorkeled his way to the reef and shot some amazing underwater photos. (see below)
There is more to see at Punta Sur than the just the beach. Mayan ruins, a historic lighthouse, and museum are near the entrance to the park.
