If a cenote or lagoon requires a life vest will I be allowed to use a snorkel vest instead?

i have no clue how you can snorkel with a life jacket. i think there called snorkel vest a tube you blow into to get it inflated.

At the Yal Ku lagoon entrance where they require it. They rent the life jacket kind but we were allowed in with our inflatable vests just had to show them.

I've never had an issue using my snorkel vest anywhere where flotation devices are required.

I've also never been required to wear a PFD at Yal Ku.

Never had any issue. Just showed it and wore it numerous times anywhere it was required.
