Snorkeling in Chankanaab Park


In Chankanaab Cozumel, you can go snorkeling right off of the beach or from a boat. Boat excursions usually include around three stops at different reefs with different coral features and fish. These three-reef snorkeling trips often offer a more personal experience, depending on the time of year and time of day.

Beach snorkeling gives you access to many different species of fish and the underwater sculptures. These sculptures make for some fantastic photo opportunities, so you may consider bringing underwater photography gear or purchasing an underwater disposable camera.

One of the best aspects of snorkeling in Chankanaab Park is that the reefs are found in shallow water. You don’t have to be an expert swimmer to enjoy the amazing underwater views and you won’t need any specialized gear.

You never know what you might see when snorkeling in Chankanaab Cozumel. You could see a school of snapper swimming in a tight cluster looking for food. A gentle ray may swim by as you dive down to inspect a coral formation. Some of our guests have even seen dolphins and manatees up close and personal.

More information about Cozumel Mexico


No island in the Caribbean is more famous for tourism than Cozumel. The island is off the Eastern Coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, and part of the Quintana Roo State. Cruise ship passengers and independent visitors love Cozumel for its friendly people, great food, laid back atmosphere, and endless outdoor adventure opportunities.

Chankanaab Resort


Tourism is the basis of the local economy, and it’s something we are proud of. We want to provide our visitors with quality Chankanaab resort experiences whether taking a tour, sitting on the beach, or snorkeling in the ocean. The name Cozumel comes from the Mayan word “Cuzamil.” This word is part of a larger phrase that means, “Island of the Swallows.”
Cozumel is the third-largest permanently inhabited island in Mexico, but the population is still relatively small. Cenotes are a common feature on Cozumel. In fact, the lagoon near our beach cabanas in Chankanaab Cozumel is actually an underwater cenote.

Cozumel is known for its rich and abundant sea life, but you may be surprised to learn that there are some small land animals in the area. Keep an eye out for elusive Cozumel fox, Island coati, and raccoon. The island also has populations of iguana, crocodile, and blue land crabs.

You will especially love the warm climate, which is perfect for everyone who enjoys an ocean swim or soaking up some rays from the sun. The Cozumel Reefs National Marine Park was established in 1966 to protect sensitive marine life on the island, especially the delicate corals that make up the reef. Chankanaab Park lies in this National Marine Park and we take great pride in ensuring it’s well maintained for future generations.

A brief history of Cozumel


If you’re traveling to Chankanaab Cozumel, you probably would like to know about the history of our area. It is believed that the island’s first inhabitants came to Cozumel in the early part of the 1st millennium A.D. These people were the Maya, although some older artifacts associated with the Olmec have been found on the island.

The Maya Moon Goddess was named Ix Chel, and there were temples built during the ages in her honor. Women desiring fertility would come to these temples to honor the Goddess. You can still visit some of these Cozumel ruins today..

The Spanish people first came to Cozumel in 1518. The first explorers were greeted peacefully by the native Maya people, which is vastly different from events on the mainland. It is estimated that around 10,000 Maya lived on the island at this time, but smallpox would soon decimate the population to less than 400.

Pirates often attacked the island in subsequent years, and many Cozumel natives moved to the mainland to avoid these vicious attacks. In the mid-1800s, people once again settled on the island. In 1949, San Miguel de Cozumel was recognized by the Mexican government, allowing it to grow into what it has become today.
