Full of fish and limestone caves, Chankanaab Park is sure to be a very memorable part of your Cozumel beach vacation. 

If you are going to be doing some scuba diving we recommend a proper dive with a scuba diving tour guide. 

In order to create an artificial reef, a ship (The Felipe Xicotencatl) was sunk just offshore from Chankanaab Park. This makes the Chankanaab Reef a great place for experienced scuba divers.
