5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Chankanaab Park is fantastic. The Sea Lion Encounter was fantastic. Would love to go back to the park and spend more time!! Also swam with the manatees and it was also fantastic. The only negative is the pictures are way to expensive. If they would make the pictures affordable they would sell a lot more packages.

Kids had fun with Lola. We had the same experience as others as far as photos were concerned. The entire encounter is based on photo ops. But you cannot take your own photos, and the ones that they take are crazy expensive.
