Chankanaab Park (Parque Chankanaab) is a lovely and laid-back eco-archaeological park just south of Cozumel. There are several attractions on dry land, including faux Mayan ruins and pleasant gardens, plus dolphin and sea lion shows.
The main attraction, however, is the wildlife-rich sea park, which can be explored via rented snorkel equipment. Diving is also offered regularly for those with PADI certification, and the Sea Trek Adventure is a way to dive with a breathing helmet and no certification necessary. Travelers also have the option to swim in a tank with dolphins, manatees and sea lions for an extra fee.
Service is prompt at Chankanaab Park, and English is almost universal throughout the park. Rental vehicles and taxis can be taken the the site, and there are almost always taxi cabs lined up right outside to take day trippers back to their hotels. Experiences such as swimming with dolphins, snuba, snorkeling and scuba diving are not included om park admission. One of Cozumel's premier attractions, the park is often included in shore excursion bookings, meaning it can get crowded when a ship pulls into town.
