Best all inclusive beaches/activities for cruise stop

Hi, we are going on a cruise in march. We have two kids on is 15 the other 1 and a half. Can anyone recommend the best beaches/snorkeling with fun kid activities and food? I was looking at Xcaret? Any suggestions?

For starters.....Xcaret is on the mainland. That will require taking the ferry from the island and a taxi from playa Del carmen to Xcaret. Repeat in reverse for your return. It will take the majority of your land time verses just staying on the island. Several Cozumel beach clubs have water toys, good prices on food and drink and should be plenty of fun for your 15 and 1.5 year old. I really don't think all inclusive saves much unless you plan to pickle your livers. Otherwise these questions have been answered repeatedly in the upper right if you are using anything but a cellphone to search. Lots of suggestions and varying opinions a to which is the best.

Hope you have fun

Xcaret is on the mainland and takes time to get there and back. Perhaps you meant Chankanaab which is on Cozumel and has good snorkeling ? There are also several Beach Clubs that are AI on Coz's South West side.

Playa Mia and Paradise Beach would be two to consider.

This assumes that the youngest does not need bungie jumping, go karts or skeet shooting.
