PalMar's SMALL Snorkel Beach Club


One of the island's most beautiful ocean-side estates invites guests to spend an unforgettable day in their lush, green gardens by the sea.





Pool area and bar








Relax and spend a quiet day pool-side basking in the warm rays of the sun or discover the underwater secrets of the Caribbean just a few steps away from one of Cozumel's best snorkeling beaches. Step into the crystal clear turquoise water and spend hours gazing at the colorful corals, sponges and fish that call this home.

Pool Area and bar
In addition to underwater beauty, PalMar Estate is also now the home of Cozumel's first Butterfly Sanctuary. Patas & Alas Butterfly Sanctuary opened within PalMar Estate in the Fall of 2006 and features as many of the species that are indigenous to the island as possible.

    My family and I (my husband and two boys, ages 9 and 6) were on a Disney cruise last week. During our stop over in Cozumel we spent a few hours at PalMar Beach Club. I had booked it beforehand with lots of help from Martin. I followed his instructions and arrived at PalMar without any trouble at all, for a $10 taxi fair. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate with us, with it being a drizzly, cloudy, windy day. We had planned on snorkeling but the water was too rough. We relaxed by the pool and had some delicious snacks and drinks. It was very quiet and definitely away from the congested tourist areas and cruise crowd. The staff at PalMar were very, very friendly. The beach area was very nice and looked like it would have been a fantastic place to spend a nice sunny day. I would recommend this location to anyone looking to spend a quiet relaxing day in Cozumel. If we are back in the area we will visit again. Thank you for your hospitality!

    Sherri, We just returned after a great cruise on the Carnival Holiday. We took a taxi from the cruise pier to Palmar Estate Beach Club and spent about 1/2 a day at your beautiful place. We toured the butterfly sanctuary with your wonderful guide who was informative and very gracious. I also spent quite a bit of time talking to Juan and he was delightful. We relaxed, ate chips and salsa, drank pina coladas and soaked in the sun. What a delightful place you have and a wonderful staff that made our visit great. Thanks and if we get a chance to recommend your place to others we will surely do that.

    PS: Your website warned us that the taxi drivers may not be too helpful when asked to go to Palmar Estates and you were correct. After asking 3 drivers who all sort of turned up their noses at us and acted like they had never heard of your place or the butterfly sanctuary we found one that would listen. I told him it was between Hotel Presidente & Fiesta Americana and he said OK. Anyway we got there in only about 6-8 minutes from the pier. Dale and Cathy Carlson ~ Louisville, KY

    Sherri and Mauricio thanks for a great day at Palmar Beach Club. We loved the SMALL size of your Beach Club and you made us feel special. The Snorkeling was wonderful. The Snacks were perfect. We loved your swimming pool and the ability to change our clothes after swimming in the clean bathrooms. We will return! Andy & Patti ~ USA

    I spent the day at Pal Mar Beach Club with my two sons. It is a marvelous place. For the first hour, we had the entire pool to ourselves, then one family joined us. It is great to be away from the cruise ship crowds at other beaches. The pool is large, and the surroundings luxurious. The beach is small, but nice, with direct access to the reefs. The food/snacks are delicious, and the price is right. I highly recommend it. T. Brinker-April 2015 ~ Glen Ellyn, IL USA

    We chose PalMar to spend our day in Cozumel. It was fantastic because there were no crowds at all! We rented some snorkeling gear and had a great time. We're going on another cruise next March and have already decided to come back to PalMar. Your staff was terrific and they DID make the best guacamole we've ever had!! Thank you again for opening up your place. The Bailey's ~ Melbourne FL
