A very good beach, sandy but with vegetation nearby if you need some shelter from the sun. Lots of locals, especially at weekends with their families. Clean, with OK snorkelling too. There is a largish stone monument here, with no advertising or fanfare .... this...More

Off the beaten path from the cruise ship crowd, this is a great place to hang out and enjoy the water. The food/bar is also quite good and reasonably priced.

We walked to Playa Azul from our condo which was about a 10 minute walk. There is no cover to get in which is nice. Not much of a beach but the snorkeling is amazing which is what we were there to do. Prices for...More

The place is quiet expensive and has just few chairs on the beach. They charge you 75 pesos for a tiny dish of French fries and 80 pesos for a dreadful glass of wine. If it's a little bit windy they don't open the beach...More

Hi there. I see you travel with a child Young child as well. I have a 10-year-old boy who likes to do… Well, everything! What do they have there for the basketball hoops, or are there many water toys, like paddle boards? I expect we will snorkel a lot - what did you see when you were snorkelling? (I have been a diver on Cozumel a couple times) You mentioned paths that are good for walking or biking – Do they lead to restaurants or shopping areas? Are there bikes at the resorts? My son spotted a crocodile in the Guests photos on TripAdvisor, It looked like it was near the pool area. Did you see any up close? On my behalf, I have to ask if the AC actually works well there. As a northern girl I sometimes need to chill the room out a little. ;) Thanks. sb

I don't remember renting the umbrellas, though we used them. We bought food and drink there, it was really good! And fairly reasonable. I think that is the deal with many beach clubs on Cozumel. No charge for use of... More
