What we will do
- Our excursion starts when we take a taxi accompanied by our Costa guide to go to the fantastic Chankanaab Adventure Beach Park, which is situated in a natural reserve, where the flora and fauna are unspoiled and protected.
- A pleasant walk going past sparkling fountains and waterfalls takes us to Dolphin Discovery Cozumel, the world's biggest dolphinarium, overlooking the blue Caribbean sea.
- A briefing with the dolphin trainers prepares us for our magical encounter with the dolphins. This is a great opportunity to learn more about these extraordinary creatures and to appreciate to the fullest extent the emotional trip that we are about to experience.
- And now it is time to meet our dolphin friend! We enter the water wearing a life vest and we meet a merry and playful creature.
- As we stroke its soft smooth skin and listen to its chirping we immediately make friends and so we reach out for a 'hand-to-fin shake'. and purse our lips to receive a sweet kiss!
- This fantastic experience continues in deeper waters where our dolphin friends take us for a fast ride as we hold on to their dorsal fins.
- One of the most exciting moments is the famous foot push, where the dolphins push us through the water at such speed that they propel us out of the water giving us a flying sensation.
- We say goodbye to the dolphins and move on to the Sea Lion Show. These born entertainers will sing, dance and jump about in a show that lasts about 20 minutes.
- For lunch we go to 'The Dolphin View' restaurant for a buffet of Mexican specialities that will give us the energy we need to explore the other wonders of Chankanaab park, Cozumel's most popular attraction.
- We can go snorkeling to see from close quarters the very colourful fish swimming in the blue sea where the park's splendid coral reef lies.
- Nature lovers and those who love peace and tranquillity can visit the beautiful lagoon, a natural aquarium surrounded by lush vegetation, or the botanical gardens, where we find enormous flaming red heliconias and other spectacular tropical plants interspersed with interesting replicas of Mayan ruins.
- The park also offers other amusements for the enjoyment of all such as the Tequila Village where you can taste Mexico's most popular drink, the crocodile enclosure or the Mayan SPA where we can try the traditional ritual steam bath.
- After the visit we return to the ship by taxi.
