Garrafon Reef Park takes advantage of the natural reefs, cliffs, and ocean by creating a haven for those who love splashing around in the water. Offering a number of water activities, a restaurant, and a bar, this is a great place to spend a day.

This water park is filled with fish and coral, perfect for snorkeling and even offers snorkeling equipment, as well as guided tours of the park to help guests see as much as they can. They have several docks to enter the water from, and ropes throughout the water to help you find your way. In addition they also have a zip line that you can use to fly overhead. For those who do want to go a little further from shore, Garrafon offers boat charters that will go into the ocean to some of the deeper reefs and coral.

Garrafon Reef Park is located on the island of Isla Mujeres, 4.2 miles south-southeast of Downtown Isla Mujeres.
