We went here after Discover Mexico. Very nice beach area and very nice walking tour of Botanical garden. It would be a great all day place to take children and hang out on the beach. Dolphin experience looked fun and there is a seal show also.

My husband and I spent our Carnival cruise ship port day in Cozumel at Chakanaab Park in Jan 2014. We took a taxi from the port to the park (quick and easy!). Paid the $21 per person entrance fee and next we grabbed a spot on the beach overlooking the beautiful blue sea. The beach is really wonderful and can be private if you walk from enough away from the entrance. The scenery was amazing and you felt you were truly in paradise. We had our own private lounge chairs and umbrella too. We rented snorkel gear for $15. The staff is very friendly on the beach (a little pushy at times) and willing to please potential customers. The chicken nachos were good. The sea lion show was entertaining as well. I would recommend Chakanaab Park for a low key beach day that has a little something extra to anybody!

This was a fun way to spend the day. We were there from 10:30 -3:30. We drove our own car, but there were tons of taxis. It was chilly when we arrived, so we did all the non wet attractions first. (Sea lion show, dolphin talk, mayan ruins, tequila area and alligator area, plus just walking around) This took about 2 hours.

We got chairs and palapa and just relaxed and people watched. We brought a picnic lunch and ordered drinks from the waiter. When it began to warm up we went for a snorkel. Lots of fish to see, but lots of people also. Spent about 45 min. We rested and people watch some more and got back in for another snorkel later. Much less people and more fish on second try. (Although both were good.)

Admission is $21, but lots to do and see. This would be a great place for kids, lots of shallow water, pool, shade... We brought our own snorkel gear.

As a side trip from our resort we spent the day here. The snorkeling was good. They have several things that are visible as you are snorkeling that make it fun. The fish were very friendly and not afraid. Swimming with the dolphins was a lot of fun. We did not pay the $$ for the pictures (we didn't even look at them) The beach was nice. Make sure to take your own towels (even if you have to sneak them out of the resort). We were told that we could rent towels but then there weren't any available. We ate a nice lunch there that was authentic Mexican. Make sure to take some cash for extras and tips.

There's plenty here to do to spend 6-7 hours, from snorkeling to the sea lion show to the swimming-with-the dolphins experience. In regards to the latter, the dolphins seem to be well cared for by passionate and knowledgable staff and trainers. It was really great touching and getting pulled along by the dolphins in the pool. My only complaint was the exorbitant price for photos, the only packaged offered my girlfriend and me was an $80 CD, nothing a la carte. I understand that money from the photos help fund the center, but even if there was an option to pay $20-30 for a few photos, we would have paid it. So unfortunately we left without photos.
