There is also a dolphin or manatee swim you can add on. The one down side is there is no beach. There is a seawall and you take a ladder down to the water. Read Less

We got the beach, snorkel, and lunch package. The beach was great and not overly crowded even though there were 7 cruise ships in port. Snorkeling was excellent as expected in Cozumel. I don't recommend getting the buffet lunch add on. The food was so-so at best, and we were told that when we sat down a waiter would take our drink order. In the 45 minutes that we were there and even after asking someone to get us a waiter no one ever came. We finally just served ourselves at the juice station. The restaurant a little farther down the beach by the dive shops has much better food and is very reasonable. Read Less

Went on our own at recommendation of The Cruise Geeks. $23 for basic admission and we had the best snorkeling experience ever! Staff was great, welcoming us right away and showing us the lay of the land, then checking on us regularly. Man made beach area was immaculate (as was entire park) and had shaded seating, sun loungers, hammocks... all included in f as or and first come first serve. We got a bucket of beers that came with 2 margatitas for $25 and order of guac for $10. All delivered to you. We didn't have to move. Snorkeling was AMAZING. Lots of varieties of fish. They have gear for you to use. We had our own snorkels but used one of their vests. Enjoyed massage for 2 2 30 minute massages) for $60. Got a little teaser (shoulder massage) right on beach. Services provided in a larger hut just behind beach area. Slightly sandy, but very relaxing with the sounds of the birds, the breeze... and a bargain CV compared to shop spa prices! No pressure sell at end FB or product. We did quick walk through on our way out to see what else there was. Saw features, lobsters in lagoon, part of walrus show, gift shop, dolphin area. All top notch. Very clean. Staff helpful and friendly. We know there are costs associated with other activities, but the beach and snorkel experience we got for a mere $23 has us chomping at the bit to return. Read Less

We decided to spend the day at Chankanaab Park. We did an all inclusive package that gave us entrance to the park, snorkeling gear, and a buffet. The Park was absolutely beautiful! Plenty of places to set up camp. We went down the far end and was able to find 2 loungers under a big canopy for 2. It was very nice and comfortable. We snorkeled, which was fun and exciting, although I did have some issues with the inflatable life vest - I tried not to let that ruin my experience. The buffet was pretty good - we found some stuff to eat, though it was a very random assortment of food. The overall experience was very good and we would go back! Read Less

We took a taxi to Chankanaab and spent the day relaxing. The park has a lot of different features, but we most enjoyed lounging in the hammocks at the beach. There is a small area to swim/wade, but most of the beach is snorkeling-only area. There was a lovely replica garden with a bunch of Mayan art which I thought would be cheesy, but was very nice and educational. There was even a class there learning on a school trip while we were there. Read Less

We took a taxi to the park. Cheap and easy. Has a little bit for everyone. If you need a beach where you can walk into the water from the beach this is not it. Swimmers should have some confidence as the actual frontage is rocky, bring your water shoes and waves can knock you around a little. There is beach sand inland and walkway with stairs that get you into waist deep water. Lots of fish, some coral but not a walk into the water place. Beach area has nice beach chairs as well as canopies for shade. Food and drink was good. Myan replicas were interesting. We did not swim with dolphines or zip line. Read Less
