It's Chankanaab Park, and a very nice area. The snorkeling isn't as good as it was before the hurricane because a lot of the reef was destroyed, but it is still not bad. My favorite place is Xel-ha, but it takes a while to get to. You have to take a ferry to the mainland, then a cab/bus/van to Xel-ha, so you spend a lot of transit time (around 3-3 1/2 hours). We went to Paradise Beach in January, great beach but no so great snorkeling. Chankanaab Park is much better for snorkeling. Have a wonderful time!
