your experience

If you’re visiting Cozumel, get ready for a super fun experience that includes a unique mix of adventure and relaxation! Not only does the island offer a variety of activities to do, but it also has some of the most idyllic beaches to rest by the ocean and work on that perfect tan. An interesting activity you absolutely must try out at the island, is swimming with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery-Cozumel. Their Royal Swim program offers you the chance to interact with two friendly dolphins in their natural environment. You’ll be able to touch, hug and kiss a dolphin, and feel the rush of being foot pushed by them as you rise above the water.

At the end of the program, you are welcome to visit Chankanaab Park. Your admission to the park is included in the ticket. Here, at this natural theme park, sit back and enjoy nature’s beauty, go snorkeling, and be amazed by the diversity of marine life you can see underwater. When you want to replenish your energy, head to the VIP area and feast on a delicious buffet with access to an open bar!
