Cruising to Cozumel, Mexico with Kids

Cozumel, Mexico my favorite port of call on a Western Caribbean cruise!  I’ve been there a dozen times and I still haven’t seen and done everything (probably because I’m notorious for returning to the Mayan ruins each and every visit)! So here are some places I intend to check out in the future, and maybe you’ll want to visit too.

Chankanaab Adventure Beach Park: The park is a quick ten minute taxi ride from the cruise ship terminal. Tickets include a slew of activities that the whole family will love… sea lion show, dolphin Caribbean / Mexico!
presentation, manatee exhibition, crocodile exhibition and eco archaeological tour, and of course huts, hammocks and chairs on the beautiful beach!  For an additional charge guests can take part in snorkel tours, scuba diving tours, snuba tours, seatrek tours, spa treatments, or swim with dolphins and manatees.This is one of the best adventure parks in the

The Mayan Cacao Company: This is an interactive history tour that that even the kids (best for age 10+) will enjoy. A lot of great Mayan history is shared by the attentive tour guides. You'll learn about the cacao and why the cocoa became essential to the Mayans in the early days to how they still keep
traditions going in present day.  They even teach guests how to make chocolate at home. There’s free tastings and the chance to purchase snacks and chocolate drinks!

Discover Mexico Cultural Park: The goal of this park is to give visitors an authentic and unforgettable experience of the culture, history and the rich traditions of Mexico. It’s such a great place! And while the tequila tasting is for “kids” 18 +, kids of all ages will enjoy the authentic Papantla Flyers show, which combines daredevil acts of bravery with deep historic traditions from Veracruz.  It’s also a lot of fun to wander the outside grounds to view the miniatures that take you from Mexico’s beginnings to present day. The kids will love the little figurines! The air-conditioned museum has many interesting artifacts from the past and folk art as well as a powerfully exciting video collage.
