Action and Adventure | Snorkeling, Scuba, Spear Fishing
Snorkeling and scuba diving is available through a local tour operator in Zihuatanejo. You can also snorkel in the ocean right in front of Playa Viva and see lots of sea life, however it is open ocean so swim with a buddy. As a special bonus, we can pair you with a local spear fisherman who can teach you how to catch your dinner.
"We all loved our stay. The resort is beautiful and the staff is the best ever. We loved them all. Yoga was great each morning. The food was exactly what we wanted. The kids loved the pool. Our only complaint was the biting bugs. They feasted on us. Maybe it is the time of year and would not be as bad at another time. If you can find an answer for the bugs your place would be perfect. Thank you for creating such a wonderful vacation. "
Snorkeling Boat Tour - Take a boat from the beautiful Zihuatanejo bay to a remote coral reef with calm waters, a white sand beach and plentiful aquatic life. No snorkeling experience is necessary, your guide, Paco, will be in the water with you giving tips and pointing out the wonders below. Facemasks, flippers and lifejackets will be provided, as well as water and juice. The boat is covered, so those sensitive to the sun will have plenty of shade. After visiting the coral reef, the boat will tour the perimeter of the Zihuatanejo bay, where you’ll find great views of La Ropa Beach and the city of Zihuatanejo. At your option, we can stop in town for lunch and enjoy a few cold cervezas
Meet Your Guides: Paco was born and raised in Zihuatanejo, and currently runs a scuba diving and snorkeling shop called Adventure Divers, in La Madera Beach.
