Beach bars, lounge chairs on sugary white sand, and front-row views of the turquoise Caribbean—a day in paradise can be found at one of Cozumel’s beach clubs. Here are our favorites, which provide similar basics, each with their own specialties.
Mr. Sancho’s Beach Club
In addition to the 1,500 feet (450 meters) of beach—one of the longest for a Cozumel beach club—Mr. Sancho’s offers activities like parasailing, horseback riding, Wave Runner rides, ATV rides, and water sports at the Aquatic Park. If you’d rather relax, head to the hammocks or one of the two pools with swim-up bars. The all-inclusive pass features an open bar, buffet, and beach lounges.
SkyReef Beach Club
With its own access to part of Cozumel’s reef, SkyReef is the beach club to choose if you’re interested in snorkeling. Packages include use of snorkeling equipment and beach chairs, as well as a 5-minute massage and a tequila tasting.
Playa Mia Grand Beach Park
If you prefer activities over quiet beach time, head to Playa Mia Grand Beach Park, which features water slides, a floating water park, the Buccaneer's Bay kid’s area, kayaks, water bicycles, paddleboats, sailboats, beach volleyball, a massage tub, and snorkeling above an underwater Mayan city.
Playa Uvas Beach Club
Playa Uvas prides itself on its snorkeling access and guest service. This is the club for you if your main interests are relaxing on the beach and eating restaurant-quality food. Thirty minutes of snorkeling and 30 minutes of kayaking are included with entrance.
