Was able to go snorkeling at Cozumel, Mexico. It was a great experience! I had a problem with my equipment and that made me a bit nervous to begin, so I grabbed a life preserver and carried on anyway. I have decided that I am going to buy my own equipment if I ever decide to go again. The company we went with had the cheapest snorkels and masks that I think are made. Had a hard time not getting water in my mouth but finally was able to work around it. Then the tie on my life jacket broke. Not a good experience as far as the equipment, but for my first time - it was incredible looking down at the coral reef!
