This is my 3rd visit to Chankanaab Park and I was certainly not disappointed. Beaches were immaculent and clean and staff were attentive but not overbearing. We were a group of 14 and although we couldn't get into the Dolphin Experience, we had a great time just hanging out on the beach, getting massages and snorkeling - well worth the $21 entrance fee. We had chips and guacamole served to us in our lounge chairs and the food was great. This is definitely a worthwhile trip especially for those wishing to get away from big cruise ship crowds or drunken beaches. Snorkeling is excellent and you can just walk right in to the marked off area and see beautiful fish.

Went to do a swim with the manatees....Horrible time! They over booked it! I was in the water there was seven of us to start..then they brought the ship people on to our time took the manatees away from us the ship people had some kind of excursion were they went into the water with all the animals for 5 mins... They took of payed time....then wanted to charge $35 for one pic they wouldn't let us take any pics and made us pose alone so they could screw us out of more money... Would never go back!!!

Stephanie G,

We will be passing your complaint to the concessionaire regarding the time spend with the manatees and the photo prices. As an independent, private company, they set their own prices for the different activities they offer.

The Royal Dolphin Package Trainer made it easy to ride two dolphins through the water in under 30 minutes. The Mayan culture trail is a good introduction for students and adults alike.
English is not a problem at this park.

As a day trip out from our cruise ship we had been uncertain what to do in Cozumel. Firstly we went to the nearest Mayan ruins, an interesting couple of hours. We then asked our taxi driver to take us to a local beach and this is where he took us.
A small entrance fee but well worth it to us. A clean tidy beach with sun beds which cost no extra, bar service, clean toilets and a snorkelling experience we will never forget. It was like swimming in a big fish tank, wonderful.
When we left, one of the gentlemen workers hailed a taxi for us and we were back on the ship in plenty of time for sail away.
They also had swimming with dolphins here which was quite expensive but had we been here with our children when they were young I am sure it would be worth very penny. Maybe one day with our grandchildren we will be back for the dolphin experience

The children had a wonderful experience swimming and interacting with 2 of the 22 dolphins there. Snorkelling was good too!
