Default Chankanaab National Park or XCaret in Cozumel

Going on RCL cruise to Cozumel in August. Which park is better Xcaret , which takes a boat ride and bus to get to, or Chankanaab National Park which is closer to the port?

We have never been to Xcaret but have been to Chankanaad Beach. Go on your own to Chankanaad. You can do things on your own schedule. Cost 10.00 taxi ride and 10.00 each to get in and 6.00 to rent snorkle,fins, and goggles. Snorkeling was great and the beach is very nice. Clean restroom/showers, food, and don't forget to get a "pineapple man". Enjoy

Hi Larry,
Chankanaab Park is just a short taxi ride away, so its closer than Xcaret, but I hear both are great :-)

Hi Larry,
We were at Xcaret in January and had a very nice day. The park was great and there was so much to see and do-just not enough time to do it all! Since we put in at Calica, it was only about a 5 min bus ride away.
We have been to Cozumel numerous times and just tonight decided that this next trip we are definitely going to Chankanaab Park and spend the day there since we'll be putting in at Cozumel. We have not spent time at the park yet and are really looking forward to it. My money would be on Chankanaab since you'd be saving a good hour or more each way that you could spend at the park.
Have a good trip!

XCaret is definitely better if you have the time. Lots to do and see. Great food. You won't be bored.

But if you are short on time, Chankanaab is great too.
