Can't beat the price! $15 for beach free drink snorkelling and kayaking. Chaise lounges and umbrellas too. Not the most beautiful beach but sandy enough for a young family. Gorgeous snorkelling

Purchased access and open bar. Drinks plentiful. Some padded loungers and some not. Umbrellas. Beach is rocky but there is one access location with a minimum of rocks. Little vendor huts, massages and a restaurant with bar. Very pleasant afternoon.

In the past, we've had a shady experience with Carnival's excursions. This one was a lot less expensive than what they normally offer. You have a four hour excursion that includes shopping in a flea market type environment for trinkets and a 1.5 stay at...More

It was a last-minute excursion offered on the ship. They announced they would be adding a combo Cozumel shopping/Playa Uvas excursion. It was very cheap (like $30/person), so we thought, "Why not?" If I was going to do it... More
How close is Playa Uvas Beach Club to all the attractions at Chankanaab? Is it actually connected so you are able to enjoy both? Can you just "walk over" to the main park? Thank you!

I have not visited Chankanaab, but it is a short 7 minute walk from Playa Uvas to the Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park. The Chankanaab reef is behind Playa Uvas as well, I believe. The snorkeling is beautiful!

About how much should a taxi ride for a family of 3 from the cruise ship cost to Playa Uvas cost? Do you offer longer snorkel times?
