We have now been to Chankanaab twice in the past year--visiting on cruise ships in Cozumel---the Costa Atlantica in Feb 2010 and the Grandeur of the Seas in Nov 2010. We lucked out both visits--good weather. This park is a short taxi ride from the cruise ship port (about $10 US each way). The entrance fee is high $17--but you can stay and visit all day. It has a well developed park and facilities, a large shopping area and restaurants. It offers a ride the dolphins experience for all--which is awesome. It has a childrens beach area. And then it has what we went for--a great beach, palapas, facilities for snorkeling and diving. The palapas are everywhere and part of your fee. Their are changing rooms, and for $10 you can rent snorkeling equipment. You enter the water right away through great platforms. But be aware--it gets deep fast to about 25 feet. You can snorkel around and see all kinds of tropical fish--saw baracudas and rays this time.There is a Christ statue to visit in about 25-30ft of water, and many Spanish cannons in the bottom to explore. Nice thing--is that you can stay all day there--there is no rush like on the snorkel and dive boats--which you can see come and go outside the protected Park area. We basically spend the whole day here snorkeling and relaxing. You can see the cruise ship port down the coast and it is easy to return--no trouble.
