Default CHANKANAAB PARK

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?

Hi Darlene,
You can easily catch a cab at the pier and go over to Chankanaab park.

Here is a link to their web-site where you can get additional information:

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.

Thank you both for the info, the more I find out about Chankanaab the more excited I get. My daughters are both asking about all the "pretty fish" they are going to see. Thanx Again!

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.

That cab fare is per cab, up to 4 people. There is a board at the taxi area that lists all the fares for different points on Cozumel.

We were there in April, with 2 kids ages 6 and 11, I believe the snorkeling equipment was about $8-10 which included, mask, snorkel and fins.

Is there a beach there also? We will be there with children and grandparents and my parents would rather sit on a beautiful beach. Is this the place to do all of that? Is there local shopping also?
