Default Chankanaab Park / Paradise Beach

Does anybody out there know how the repairing, and rebuilding of Chankanaab Park is going? We are supposed to go to Coz at the end of April 2006 and wondered if the park might be open by then.

Also, anyone been to Paradise Beach that could tell us how things are there? Wondering how the beaches are now and if the restaurant and bars are open? Can you still get a massage on the beach? Do they have venders? Whats available?

Thanks butterfly

We have a cruise booked that includes cozumel in Feb. 2007. Although I have been there many times, I am praying all is fixed and up and running by the time we head that way. Let us know what you find out!

According to other posts, Chankanaab is going to try to reopen in February or March.

Paradise Beach is open for business and is fine. You can always e-mail Tom and he can tell you first hand.

Default Chankanaab park/Paradise Beach

We were at Paradise Beach two weeks ago and it is very nice. Had a strawberry smoothie and chicken nachos (delicious). They wait on you at your beach chair, but are never pushy. Sure hope Chankanaab will be open by Spring, but the land traveling out to P.B. is just decimated. Sure wish we had visited Chankanaab in past years. I wanted to meet Paradise Tom, but he wasn't there that day.

We are just devastated about Chakanaub. Love it there. Conquest Jan 22, 2006 includes Cozumel. Where is Paradise Beach? Maybe we can go there this time.

Paradise Beach is past Chankanaab Park. It is beside San Francisco beach. Just grab a taxi and tell them where you want to go. Here is a map to Cozumel, it has the beaches on it.

Default Concierge in Cozumel

Any questions on Cozumel, I refer to a friend that lives there. She is a concierge there, so she knows everything and everyone.

Default Paradise Beach Cozumel

We were at Paradise Beach last Friday (wow, it's already been a week).
Our first time there and we loved it. Usually go to Chakanaub (sp) but were sad to hear it was being repaired. I understand it will be open again around March, but Paradise Beach was fantastic. As far as the cab ride, always ask first, but we paid $13 each way with two of us in the cab.

Have fun and happy cruisin.

If you had the choice now between Paradise Isl or Chankaubab - which one would you choose? Of course, thats after the repair, but compared to before the storm.
