Recommended by an Insider! Food & Beverage / 20% Discount View All Coupons Owned by the same family and open since the 1980's, Playa Corona is one of Cozumel's oldest beaches and has developed a huge following particularly amongst divers. In years past when the only folks visiting Cozumel were divers, Playa Corona quickly established itself as a favorite hang out because of it's pristine, crystal clear waters and tranquil sunset views.

With its multiple shady palapas and pier, Corona is a great place to relax, have lunch, swim in the secure area in front of the restaurant and palapas or enjoy the excellent snorkeling and diving just off shore.

This sand and ironshore beach area marks the end of the good shallow water snorkeling section of Cozumel as beaches farther south are sandy for hundreds of yards out and cannot sustain shallow coral growth.

The principal palapa offers restaurant/bar with a menu of seafood, various other "locals" dishes including panuchos, enchilidas Yucateca, chicken and fish Tikin-xik and a good selection of delicious tropical Caribbean drinks. There are also burgers and sandwiches for the less adventuresome.

Pirata del Caribe is the on-site dive and snorkel shop. Massage is also available to guests.

For those visitors who would like to avoid the cruise ship crowd when ships are in port, this is a perfect, quiet and tranquil spot since no massive ship tours originate or end up at this beach area.
