So what do the drivers do while you are off being a tourist?
The kids want to swim with the dolphins in Chankanaab but we also would like to tour around the island with Tours Plaza - see the ruins that are there, the choc factory etc. Is this doable?
If you decide to shop for an hour or so, what do the drivers do, wait somewhere?
I haven't been to Chankanaab but I have toured several times with ToursPlaza. They will do whatever you want to do and will park and wait while you do whatever activity you are interested in. You pay by the hour with a minimum of three hours. You will find their website if you Google ToursPlaza or Facebook.
However I have to say your itinerary seems a little ambitious! I don't know how long you are in port but I would email Edouardo and ask his opinion regarding timing. He is usually very efficient and prompt at replying.
Bear in mind the dolphin swims are at set hours as far as I know so you would need to work around that. You also have included in that fee the entrance fee to Chankanaab which, from what I have heard, can in fact be a day's destination in itself. Unless you are just going to go in and do the swim I am not sure that you will fit in all you other activities. There is a second dolphin swim in Cozumel at Dolphinaris which is on the edge of town. I don't know if that would fit in any better with your plans.
