    From the sounds of things, you've set your sights on the all-inclusive option.

    There are a few companies that will take you out to dive and snorkel. Try visiting http://www.deepbluecozumel.com/ or http://www.diveparadise.com/ for rates. Diving and snorkeling prices vary depending if you need to rent gear, group size, and how long you want to stay out for.

    Chichen Itza is on the mainland. There are excursions that you can sign up at your hotel's travel desk. If you have a car rental, you would have to take the car ferry to the mainland (and back).

Then you would have to drive from Cancun to chichen Itza. There are excursions by bus and by air. Most of the Yucatan is jungle, not a lot of towns.
