Snorkeling at Chankanaab Beach

Today we are going to take an adventure under the sea, exploring one of the most beautiful destinations on Cozumel. The island has some of the most amazing underwater attractions found anywhere in the world. Cozumel is a Mecca for divers and snorkel enthusiasts. Once you hop in the water it is easy to see why. The National Park protects part of the Mesoamerican Reef, the second largest in the world. There is so much to see in the protected waters off the coast of Cozumel.

There are many reasons to visit Cozumel, and the beachfront should be the main reasons. Where it lacks in sandy beaches it makes up for with rocky features with fish to swim alongside. We have been to a few incredible locations on the island, so when we finally had the chance to explore Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park we were quite excited.

There are some really great coral structures located here, with easy access right on the shore. What makes this spot so amazing is there is a lot of beautiful coral to view close to the shore, which makes it accessible to swimmers of all skills. There is a handy staircase to help lower yourself into the water. There was an abundance of beautiful colours and curious fish.

The “Arricifes de Cozumel National Park” is one of the most incredible places we’ve explored in Mexico. It is located on northern edges of the Mesoamerican Reef, which lines the shore of the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize and Honduras. It protects some of the most beautiful habitat in the world.

We are excited to share one of our latest videos from the underwater world of Cozumel. This video explores the reef at Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park.

Snorkeling on Cozumel – Chankanaab Beach

Cozumel has many great attractions, but the real magic is found under the sea. We have tried to take advantage of our time living on the island, exploring as many of the underwater attractions available to us. Most of the best places to explore are located along the shore. In February of 2020, we finally got to explore the waterfront at Chankanaab Beach.

Chankanaab Beach Club is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the island. It is located inside the National Marine Park of Cozumel. As you can tell, it has some pretty special sights for those willing to jump in the water. We will certainly go back again.
