Great snorkeling in pristine waters. Take a waterproof camera for the spectacular underwater shots of wildlife and the statues.

Nice park and beach day with a guide from the hotel who was very conscientious and kept safety in mind while we were snorkeling. A relaxing afternoon. Again, all of the staff at the outdoor restaurant were fun, happy and very chatty.

We loved this place. We did the dolphin adventure and got to swim with them, they pushed us on a boogy board, and kissed us. And then got to meet the manatees. The park itself has a swimming pool, walking trail, bar, restaurant and gift shop. More than we had time to do. The buffet lunch we had was excellent!... More

Great time snorkeling, tequila tasting and hanging out on the beach. Go to the silver store on site. There is zip lining and swim with the dolphins there too.

We had a great time at the Chankanaab park. The reef is absolutely gorgeous. We went on a group and snorkeled around, it was beautiful. We also went to the opening of the cave where the sea meets the lagoon - really nice!

Great snorkeling and very convenient to most resorts. Food is delicious and waiters are efficient. The underwater statues are a great sight when snorkeling.

If you don't scuba dive but don't want to miss out on the reef life, this is a great park to snorkel in. You will see all kinds of amazing sea life, and you may even see the occasional turtle or stingray!

I booked my snorkeling trip for 4 persons for only $35.00 us dollars and It was a 2hr trip. Loved every second of it. Our guide Tigre was great explaining everything to us! Make sure you ask for different prices with the different boats and do not let them give you a higher price.
