Explore Mexico’s rich culture on a combined Discover Mexico and Chankanaab National Park excursion. Begin at Discover Mexico Park, where you will be immersed in the country’s vibrant culture and traditions. A brilliant 4-screen video collage takes you from the Riviera Maya to Oaxaca, and on to Chihuahua, bringing one of the world’s oldest and richest cultures vividly to life.
Trace the evolution of Mexico’s ancient civilizations as you tour replicas of Chichén Itzá and other Aztec, Maya, Olmec, and Totonac pyramids. The Spanish colonial era is reborn in the park’s reproductions of grand monuments, cathedrals, and the Paseo de la Reforma, Mexico City’s elegant boulevard.
Stroll through tropical gardens ripe with coconuts, papayas, and bananas. Head to the Museum of Popular Arts and admire rare black-clay pottery, carved wooden animals, brilliant textiles, and other handcrafts fashioned by native artisans.
Stop at the souvenir shop to take home your own arts and crafts, much of it exclusive to the area. Fortify yourself with quesadillas, chimichangas, or ice cream at the snack bar, and enjoy the amazing aerial show by the Papantla Voladores Flyers.
Then head by taxi to Cozumel’s popular Chankanaab National Park for the second half of the excursion. Don snorkel gear and mingle with rays, sea turtles, and hundreds of colorful fish in the crystalline waters of the unspoiled coral reef. Your guide will lead you to the best viewing spots.
Back on land, join the interactive sea lion show, watch the playful antics of the park’s dolphins, or take a guided tour of the park’s botanical gardens, home to huge, fiery heliconias and other tropical plants.
Kids can blow off steam at the playground, or play in the shallow waters of their own small beach inlet. At any point during your time in the park, you can refuel at one of its 2 restaurants, or simply enjoy a book in the shade of a palm tree.
