I AM LOOKING FOR INFO ON CHANKANAAB PARK,ENTRY FEE'S FOR ADULTS AND KIDS 8 & 10, SNORKLING EQUIPMENT RENTAL PRICES, CAB FARES FROM PIER TO PARK AND ANY OTHER HELPFUL INFO YOU THINK I MIGHT NEED. IS IT CHEAPER TO DO THIS ON OUR OWN THEN TO TAKE ONE OF THE SHIP'S EXCURSIONS?
I was there in November. I think the cab fare from the downtown ferry dock was $5.00 and the admission to Chankanaab was $8-10. No need to do this through a ship shore excursion. It's a piece of cake on your own and cabs are readily available.
You can rent lockers and snorkeling equipment for a nominal fee. We spent a week in Mexico and the nachos we had at one of the Chankanaab restaurants were the best.
Darlene: Don't forget to take a walk through the botanical gardens. You can even hook up with a guide to tell you about the various plants and ancient artifacts. There is a recreated "mayan dwelling" . And your daughters will enjoy seeing the iquanas everywhere.
