I'll be bring the children to Cozumel March 24 for the day and they want to snorkle. All of my kids have been spoiled by learning to snorkle there and nothing else seems to compare. They aren't super strong swimmers and my oldest only wants to snorkle for about 15 minutes, so I need a place where there is some sand for them to play in (it doesn't need to be a great beach - just some sand) and really good shore snorkeling. I thought about the Palancar reef snorkle, but I'm not sure that I want to spend 35 dollars for my oldest to sit on the boat. I'll be traveling alone with three kids and leaving one on shore while I take the others out on a boat is not possible. We have been to Chakanaab before and it was great, but might want to try something a little different this time especially with the admission fee being raised.
Can you give me any suggestions? I'll be traveling to Coz from 3-9 to 3-13 and will be able to check out your suggestions for myself before I bring the kids. Yes, two visits to Coz in three weeks- I love my life!
