Default Costa Maya and Cozumel with kids -- need help.

What excursion is best for kids in Costa Maya and Cozumel? My kids are 8 yr. and 5 yr. Can anyone personally recommend a good suggestion for either or both locations?

For Cozumel we went to Chankanaab Park for the day. They have a nice beach, shade huts, beach chairs, restuarants, bars, restrooms, lockers, and showers. They also have a botanical garden and a replica of Mayan ruins. They have a sea lion show several times during the day. This is also where you do the dolphin swim and/or sea lion swim. We did the sea lion swim and the Helmet Diving here. Even if you don't do either of the swims you can see the dolphins. There's snorkeling right off the beach. My kids brought dry cereal from the ship and it really attracts the fish.

In Costa Maya we rented a golf cart and went to Mahahual. It's a very rustic village with a nice beach. The only thing I didn't care for was I found the vendors there to be very pushy. If you stay at the pier there is all kinds of shopping, a pool, restaurants, bars, etc. We're going back in April 2005 and plan to go to Uvero Beach. We spoke with some people who went there and they had a great time. I wouldn't recommend the ruins as you're traveling with children. Its about a 2 hour ride to get to them.

Hope this helps.
