What is the difference in terms of what to do at Chankanaab Park vs. Xcaret? One seems much more pricier than the other.
Two reasons for the price difference; Xcaret is on the mainland so you have to take the ferry from Cozumel to get there. The second reason is Xcaret is significantly larger than Chankanaab and has more stuff - a zoo, aquarium, underground tubing river, even a cemetery (Xcaret has a catholic church within it's grounds). They charge much more to enter Xcaret. All that said - I really don't care much for Xcaret. It is tiring to walk around and much more commercial than they claim to be. You can do the dolphins at either place. I prefer Chankanaab to Xcaret because it is more quaint and easier to access.
