Chankanaab Lagoon Beach Cozumel

Chankanaab (meaning “small sea“) Lagoon offers a beautiful beach, but what you’ll stop here for is the snorkeling (or diving). You can jump right in and explore limestone caves that lead to the lagoon. Chuck-full of thousands of tropical fish, Chankanaab is a must-see. While one of you makes use of the full-service beach, the other can snorkel till their heart’s content. There’s a botanical garden here as well.

Make sure you plan at least half a day at Chankanaab. Since the cruise ships bring busloads of passengers here, make sure you arrive early to avoid the crowds.

Chankanaab Lagoon - CozumelYou can rent snorkel and dive gear here. There’s a reef a few hundred feet out (almost too far and too deep for snorkeling). A ship was sunk here to create an artificial reef a few years ago.

Cozumel is very sunny, so bring plenty of sunscreen. Don’t spoil a great vacation with sunburn.


  • Sand – medium-grain white/gold powder, soft, very clean
  • Facilities – full-service with restaurant on-site
  • Shade – mature palm trees/huts
  • Sports – all water sports
  • Notes – can become crowded with cruise ship passengers

Where do the locals go and which beach has live music?
