In Water Adventures Part I, I took those three activities on one day. You can imagine how soar my body turned to on second day. But my adventure spirit still went up, so I decided to have jungle tour and snorkeling together. (Sorry that I could not take pictures while we were doing water activities, you can imagine lol)
- Jungle Tour: Water BMW + Snorkeling: Live show under the sea
Some say jungle tour is the most fun activity they have in Cancun! I kinda agree with them. My boyfriend and I took the same boat and he navigated our own boat on a breathtaking voyage across the Nichupte Lagoon. It was like driving a BMW on water. The good thing is there was no traffic at all so that we could drive freely but still followed the guider’s boat. We drove about 20 mins and got to a very light blue ocean area which shined under the sunshine. After 1o more mins driving, we reached the coral reef area which seemed like we were in the middle of no where (no land surrounds in your sight at all ) Then we put on our goggles, life jackets and snorkels and prepared to jump into the ocean. Sounds dangerous? Yea, I was totally freaked out about jumping into Caribbean ocean (who knows if my lifejacket can support me and help me float or not). But I did, and took me a while to learn how to breathe under water with snorkel. Underwater sightseeing was fun because we could finally see living fish and living coral reefs so close and no need to stick our faces on the walls of fish tanks!! However, the Punta Nizuc coral reefs were not colorful and wavy as I imagined.

- Fish spa: itchy and natural
After an exhausting adventure, my friend Olivia and I were attracted by a fish tank with many small black fish surrounding people’s feet. That’s exactly the same fish spa I watched on TV long time ago. The fish spa is originally from Japan and is very popular at Japanese spa centers. Using authentic Garra Rufa fish, also known as “Doctor Fish”from Turkey, they are fed on human’s dead skin cells. Maybe it sounds a little scary, but actually it is a treatment, a kind of therapy and also an small adventure. When I firstly put my feet into the water, those little fish immediately came near my feet and started biting. It was very itchy (I could not help laughing) and took a while to get used to it. Well, about the result, it was…ok but worth trying.
