This is a beautiful reef but on the day we dove it windy surface conditions had stirred up the sediment a bit reducing visibility. It was still an impressive reef with huge coral mounts.

This park offers excellent snorkeling and swimming. There is a fee to enter the park. It's close to the hotels and piers.

We went for half a day, nice for some snorkelling and a great beach area to soak up some sun. A little pricy for what you get

I didn't dive while I was there. But I don't think you need reservations. There is a dive shop located directly on the beach at Chankanaab and I think you can book right there. But I am not positive. Cozumel has some great... More
