Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park  Cozumel | Mavic Pro Drone 4K. One of the biggest appeals on a cruise for us is that it has something for everyone in the family. It is sometimes hard to replicate that during the shore trips. We visited the Caribbean island of Cozumel, in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, last January on a cruise stop. We were fortunate to have spent a day at one of our favorite excursions – Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park. Chankanaab was a conservation area and a natural reserve and was established as a national park in 1980. This wasn’t the same as the National Parks we were used to visiting here in the USA. This looked more like a beachfront resort. The word Chankanaab means Chan (small) Kanaab (sea or ocean) in Mayan and was so named for the natural lagoon within the park. Now filled with numerous tropical fish, this was a remnant of an old Mayan settlement. It was also used, at one time, by pirates as a refuge since the lagoon was fed by underwater caves. Swimming is not allowed in the lagoon to protect its fragile ecosystem. No matter its past uses, it was undeniably stunning. www.theworldisabook.com
