Alternate to ABR for turtle snorkelling

The snorkel rules in Akumal  are vague at best.  We have been going there for over 20 visits.  I see more restrictions now.  Can you actually see turtles in the areas that are not off limit and is it free range on Sundays?  We are looking for good turtle snorkeling elsewhere.  I would like off shore snorkeling.  Anyone have a good place to find turtles?  We loved the old days, when very few snorkeling and people respected the coral and wildlife.

    I saw lots of turtles in the unrestricted areas in April/May.

    AASB 2018 created good memories. Getting ready for 2019!!

    We saw tons in the open areas further south from the buoy system.  It's still good snorkeling, and I think the turtles figured out that the crowds hang in those roped off areas and are starting to migrate south.

    I agree. We saw them in November.  No absolutely free range, but once you get away from in front of Lol Ha there is a much bigger area you can range in.
