THE ECO PARKS OF COZUMEL

Cozumel parks are one of the area's biggest attractions. Xcaret and Xel Ha alone attract over 2 million visitors a year. When you've had a chance to experience them, you'll see why. All the parks on this page are located on the mainland Riviera Maya, except Chankanaab Park, which is the biggest park in Cozumel. It's like a scaled down version of Xcaret and Xel Ha, with good snorkeling from the beach. We offer discount tours to all of these locations, and many more. Sian Kaan and Rio Lagartos are a birdwatchers paradise, with over 350 different kinds of birds.

COZUMEL PARKS FAQ's
Q: WHICH PARK SHOULD I CHOOSE?
A: We recommend Xcaret for families, as there is so much for the kids to see and do. It's really a spectacular place. Xel-Ha is a great place to spend a day, relaxing and snorkeling. There are plenty of things to do at Xel-Ha as well, but not as much as Xcaret. Chankanaab Park we recommend for anyone who doesn't want to have to ride the ferry over to the mainland. It's conveniently located on Cozumel Island. We especially recommend it if you want to swim with dolphins.

Discover Mexico is a unique theme park showing the cultural history of Mexico, and can be easily combined with another excursion, including Chankanaab Park. Rio Lagartos and Sian Kaan are both incredible nature preserves. Anyone interested in birdwatching or ecology of the region should definitely check these out, but they are long days from Cozumel, so they're out of the question for cruise ship passengers.
