Throughout the year, the water is beautiful around Cozumel and this webcam shot illustrates just that! And we always have something fun happening out here at the beach! Make plans to visit and snorkel yourself! See PalMar Beach
Now Open in Cozumel!
Let the Cozumel reefs dazzle you as Phocea Mexico dive shop gives you the grand tour of all that Cozumel scuba diving has to offer!
The cruiser beaches all pay incentives to taxi drivers and tour providers to stop at their locations all along the new highway route but many small beach operators can't afford these premiums and get little traffic. Located just minutes from downtown and the ship piers but on the OLD beachfront highway, PalMar Beach offers excellent snorkeling and a beautiful fresh water pool! Gates close after 50 people ~ reservations a must! So go & relax away from the crowds!!!
Now open in their new location, Prima Trattoria is welcoming patrons back with their tasty Northern Italian food menu. Attention to detail, fine service and outstanding food make this owner operated restaurant an INSIDER favorite year round!
Save $$ by getting yourself across on the ferry to Playa del Carmen and meeting up with the tour there! Learn about the ancient Mayan culture at Chichen Itza's enormous ruin site. An educational tour suitable for the entire family!
We are linked up with some of the best run operations on the island.
We will help you find exactly what you are looking for - matching your skill level perfectly.
We also have some great dive/accomodations packages!

A Personal Note from Sherri "Grilled Cheese Anyone?!"
Spring has arrived and for the most part here on the island, “winter” as we know it is behind us for 2015! Seems like only yesterday we were watching the Carnaval parades go by and then welcoming Spring Breakers but even that too has all come and gone for 2015. It was an amazing and incredible season for us not just at IslaMar Villas but at PalMar and with Insider as well. Fortunately we were able to integrate several new staff members into our mix who helped us create a banner year and some incredible experiences for travelers coming to see us!
We are taking advantage of the break from Winter Season to do some Spring cleaning and planting ~ so many projects, so little time before the next wave of tourism comes our way for the Summer. But we’ll be ready and hopefully you are too! It’s time to plan those summer getaways and don’t forget Cozumel when making your travel decisions! Since Summer is a lower season for us than Winter, often you can find incredible savings not only on airfares but lodging as well.
I will close by reminding you all that it is National Grilled Cheese Month in the U.S. ~ a sacred time of year for many it seems….had no idea grilled cheeses had their own month. Go figure!
