Chankanaab National Park#7 in Best Things To Do in Cozumel
Chankanaab is a Mayan term that means "small sea," and the outdoor park is named for its coastal cenote, which features diving and snorkeling tours, dolphin encounters, and a relaxing beach. There's also opportunities for zip lining and touring a tequila factory, along with gardens, nature trails and picturesque grounds for both exploring and relaxing. There's even a spa located on the premises.
Recent visitors raved about the park's diving opportunities and agree that it is the perfect place to bring families and groups, as there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Some reviewers noted it was a touristy experience with an inflated price tag, but most agreed it was a fun experience.
It does cost money to get into the park, but the admission price includes dolphin and sea lion shows, as well as beach access. Admission costs $21 for adults and $14 for children ages 4 to 12. For the best spot on the beach, get there early and nab a spot under a palapa (thatched shelter). Chankanaab is open to visitors Monday through Saturday, between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The park is a quick taxi ride south of San Miguel and just about a 10-minute ride from the cruise ship terminal. To learn more about its facilities, visit the Cozumel Parks website.
