We will be in Cozumel the first week of January & will have our 2 children with us (ages 6 & 8). We are probably going to do a reef snorkeling excursion on our own for 1/2 the day but then wanted to hang out at a nice place for the rest of the day. I really don't need the "Sea World" atmosphere (shows, etc) as we can experience that at home, however, I do need a place that is safe for the kids & a place they will be able to enjoy themselves. I want an area that will allow us to snorkel.
From all I've read so far it looks like it's between Chankanaab & Dzul-ha. All things considered, what would you recommend? Are there locations that would be better than the above?
