Trying to decide between the two. Taking my brother's family who's never been, so want to make a good decision. 1 couple mid 50's, 1 couple mid 40's, a 19 yr old and 11 yr old.

Thinking Chank because it's beautiful and they's have the opportunity to snorkel (which they've never done) from shore, see the iguanas (sp??), dolphins and experience a great beach day.


Thinking of Paradise (I've been to chank, but not para) because it seems to have more to do. The younger ones might like the water toys and there are waverunners and parasailing available. But, I understand the snorkeling is no good. I'd really like to gift my nephews with a parasailing trip.

So......If we got to chank early and left a little after lunch could we get back to the pier and grab a parasailing trip? I know they don't take much time but can't remember where we "went" to actually get on the boat. Any help?

If cost isn't a factor, I think Chankanaab is a no-brainer decision.

Not sure how long your port day is, but you could easily stay at Chank for half a day or more and then cab to PB for parasailing. Good luck!
