Chankannab Park is recommended for those who love to snorkel. Hhowever, it does not offer a nice beach. Just down the road you will find Paradise Beach which the whole family will enjoy. Entry is free with nice lounge chairs & umbrellas. It is a $5 pp fee if you wish to utilize all the water toys like kayaks, snorke equipment, floats, climb the iceberg and use the water trampoline. Food and drinks are excellent as are the clean rest rooms and showers. Paradise is a great way to spend some relaxing time on a beautiful beach. Tell Tom that Nana says hello.
Bon Voyage

Just got back from Cozumel. If you want to snorkel, I highly recomend Dzul Ha (sp?) small, but very nice, not as crowded as some of the others, and snorkelling is excellent right off shore, as is Playa Carona. Paradise and San Francisco beaches have all the toys which the kids will like but crowds as well, which to us, was no different that any southern Florida beach... it all deopends what you're looking for.

Hi,
Is it easy to get a cab on your own to go to paradise beach in cozumel? How long is the cab ride from the pier to paradise beach and what is the cost per person? Are there plenty of cabs that stay there to get you back to the ship at different times during the day?

My husband and I went to Chankannab Park and did the helmet dive, but if you don't want to do that, in the same place (20 to 30 feet away) there is the Dolphin Encounter, Snuba and the Swim with the Dolphins. The beach is small but clean and you do a little snorkeling there also.

Don't know what it is like at spring break but the last time we were there the ship stopped at Calica (mainland across from Cozmel) and were pleasantly surprised by Xcaret. It is an ecological park with underground rivers you can swim, lagoons with thatched roof rest areas (bars close by), swim with dolphin opportunities, shows performed by locals, resturants, pools for animals (we saw our first ever Manatees), areas with flamingos and macaws out in the open (not in cages), places to snorkel, snuba etc.

It was unlike anything we had ever seen in the states.

Mr. Pancho's is also another great beach with fun things and beach toys.Playa del Sol is also very nice.
If you want a snorkeling Adventure then i would strongly suggest you book a Ship's tour to the Palencaar Reef - Amazing!!
