We did the Royal Push / Pull Dolphin Encounter at Chankanaab (again). The staff were awesome and the food was very good. I've read other reviews about it being hard to get the "free" adult beverages at the open bar--it was the other way around for us to the point that we had to tell them no more. The park is all very well organized and thoughtfully done: restrooms, lockers, PFDs, pictures, restaurants, park attractions, etc. The facilities and grounds are immaculately kept. Yes, pictures are not cheap but you have a professional photographer with you taking a ton of awesome pictures for around any hour--so it's probably a lower price than a wedding photographer. I think we paid $240 for 4-people and I actually consider that a bargain. We got 4 hardcopy prints, a coffee cup with 1 print, a CD of all 266 pics, and were also able to download them from their site then next day. We also did snorkeling on our own and got a $5 snorkeling rental deal per person instead of the usual $15. We loved snorkeling among the statues and cannons on the bottom. While the dolphins were the highlight, we also had an awesome time with Santiago in the Mayan village. We wished we had more time to spend with him. He dressed us in traditional Mayan garb and then did a Mayan reading of sorts in the sweat lodge. It was a super awesone execursion and we had an even better time than the first time we went there in 2016. My only disappointment was that we wanted to spend more time there.
