Went to Chankanaab state park to swim with the manatees. Was really great. Booked thru shipmate and was only 120 for 2 ppl. RC wanted that for one but idk what else that may have included. We ended up Buying a picture package that was 130 on top of that but got over 115 pics. Also included a buffet for the 2 of us and endless alcohol & sodas. It also included snorkle gear for 2 and a snorkle private beach. The beach and park are wonderful. The water is gorgeous. My only complaint is I was hoping for some good taco's but the buffet was American food with a tiny bit of stuff to make your own nachos. Would do this again. Loved it.

We stayed at the Royal PDC and had a nice time. It was an adults only resort so that was great! You also had access to the Real across the street. The pool was awesome, beach was a little small but we walked down a ways and explored the area. Always felt safe.

Highly recommend XPlor, Xel-Ha, Coba Mayan Ruins. XPLOR is cool because it has a little of everything. UTV, cave swimming, Zip Lining. Xel-HA is great for snorkeling, cliff jumping, lounging, dolphin swi Coba I liked because it is one of the few ruins you can still climb. Most you can only look at.
