I just returned from my cruise...and I was at this park...I did the Royal Dolphin Swim here...very cool...I'd do it again and again and again...also they had snorkeling...and I did the Snuba...they put a huge helmet like thing on you and you go down to the bottom with a guide and walk thru it all...very cool...fish were all around us...there are a few places for you to eat and have drinks...they do come to the beach and service you...I did see a volleyball net and mini golf...I enjoyed myself.
Didn't see any water trampolines at Chakanaab but we had a lot of fun there. Snorkeling was really good and you could rent the equipment for cheap right there at the shore. We packed a lunch from the cruise ship so we weren't really hungry there but we did go to the bar and had some great guacamole! I think the teens would love it there--I didn't want to leave!!
We just returned from our cruise 7/29/04. In Cozumel we went to Paradise Beach, which the cruise ship personnel will not tell you about - say they've never heard of it and you won't find it on any of their maps.
A $12 taxi ride will take you to Paradise Beach. It is FREE to get into. The beach is clean and beautiful. There are lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas. There are floats for the water, a water trampoline, an "iceberg" climbing wall in the water, and sea kayaks...all free. There are jet skis to rent - $55 for 30 minutes - and parasailing -
$110 for a tandam ride. There is a banana boat - $10 per person. Bring cash as the only thing you can charge is the jet skis.
There is a bar with, I'm told, purified water for the drinks and ice. There is food to purchase (appetizers, grilled food, etc.) and, of course, drinks. There are changing rooms, showers, and bathrooms, all immaculately kept.
We had 10 high school seniors along on our trip and they had a great time at this beach. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Enjoy!
I have been to Chankanaab twice and have not noticed jet skis or pararsailing.
It is indeed a beautiful park and if your interests include snorkeling (awesome), Snuba, swimming, sunning, nature walks, marine shows, swimming with dolphins, etc., then this place is perfect (more relaxing and educational).
Have not been to Paradise Park but it sounds like it would be more fun for teens. No matter where you go have fun! I love Coz!
