This was our second time visiting Chankanaab, both as part of a cruise. As with our first visit, we found it a great way to spend a day in Cozumel. We took ten minute cab ride from the pier and used the on-line coupons to save a few dollars per person. We all enjoyed the snorkeling, especially the large number... More

We went there for our honeymoon , the cruise set port in Cozumel and we chose the Chakanaab resort for a swim with the dolphins and then relax on the beach. It is a wonderful experience and this place is unbelievable. The beach is sand white and the dolphins are so cute. Worthed all the way

Cozumel's reefs are still recovering from severe hurricane but, WOW sea turtle that hung out and let us get up close and see her for quite a long time while she was munching on coral. decent visibility and strong current made drift dive easy.

This is a beautiful place to go to relax in a hammock, watch a seal show, swim with dolphins, see some ruins, play volleyball, snorkel or just to relax

Agree with most favorable reviews. Just wanted to add info to correct some things mentioned in other reviews. Child is $14. This for basic entrance. Coupons around for a couple of dollars off. For $5 more get Tequila tasting, a T-shirt and some kind of "free" gift. 11 AM and 1 pm a tour around dolphin area include. Seal show... More

This stunning park is huge and has tons of activities and beach. The water is so clear youcan see the bottom from 50 feet up. Go early and stay the day.

Nice place to swim, snorkle and enjoy a day. This is a park that is well visited especially by cruise ship visitors Mon thru Sat. Suggest you try Sun.

There is so much to do here and it is all wonderfully delightful for adults and children! Beautiful beach with lockers and nice facilities. Good snorkeling so you can see statues and coral and fish without swimming too far out. gardens and pond are beautiful and so clean. Mayan area is educational and the tequila tasting is fun. So much... More

Went here as a kid before there were any walls or a building. Used to be a tidal pool with an access tunnel to the sea. You could once see the El Presidente in all its majesty in the distance while snorkeling for the day back in the early early 1980s. It's nothing but a tourist hole. Fat folks that... More
