Directions to PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club
PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club is located just south of ALL cruise ship piers between Presidente Intercontinental Cozumel Resort & Spa and Fiesta Americana Hotel - a very short 5-10 minute ride via taxi.
It will cost US $9.00 to $11.00 per four (4) persons via taxi.
Ask the taxi driver take you to the Dzul Ha Reef beach area.
TAXIs do not want you to know about Palmar because they do not receive taxi kickbacks for delivery of guests at this location. Prices are lower for guests at this beach club for this reason!
By Rental Car:
PalMar is located south of town and past all cruise ship piers.
On the NEW main highway there is an overhead sign pointing the way to the OLD highway.
The overhead sign says "Chankanaab, Dzul Ha and Fiesta Americana Hotels".
Exit the NEW main highway to the right just where this overhead sign is and get onto the OLD highway.
You will pass the Presidente Intercontinental Cozumel Resort & Spa and go another half mile or so to the Dzul Ha Reef beach area.
If you pass the condos on your left or the Fiesta Americana Hotel, you just missed us!
Once there, you will see a "YELLOW" sign that says "PALMAR BEACH CLUB ~ NOW OPEN!"
You can't miss it!! I hope to see you there! - Sherri
I am from Quebec and we reserved thru this website. We spent a day there during a cruise stop to Cozumel in March 2016. Taxi ride was short, not expensive and not complicated (if you follow Web instructions) and our experience of PalMar and it's staff was fantastic (no risk, you can trust them). Everything was exactly as written in the Web (including great meal). Water of the pool was warm and clean. For snorkeling, it was the best experience of my life (and I visited full of places in the world whose Turquoise Islands, St. Martin, Cuba, Jamaica, Cayman Islands, St. John, Culebra in Puerto Rico and elsewhere in Mexico) all just a few feet distance from the beach! Go there without hesitation!!! We met owner (Sherri) who was very welcoming. I would visit there again without hesitation. E. Levesque (March 2016) ~ Laval, Quebec, CAN
I read about your beautiful beach club and would like some information. We have 7 in our party and would like to reserve as indicated on the INSIDER website. M. Denobrega ~ N/A
We appreciated the correspondence with information and details on how to get to PalMar and what to expect. We were welcomed by friendly staff and enjoyed our stay. The Caldwells - November 2015 ~ Victoria, TX USA
Thank you to the staff for making our day at Palmar so enjoyable! They were so helpful! Everything was great! L. & C. Abrahams (March 2016) ~ Brockville, Ontario, CAN
BEAUTIFUL PRIVATE BEACH CLUB - I am so thankful to have found this wonderful place! We disembarked a Carnival Cruise ship with about 1500 other people. They headed out on some high priced cruise sponsored excursion, and we headed out to our own private beach, pool, and snack bar...complete with extremely attentive staff! They made FRESH guacamole and pico right in front of us, and mixed up some wonderful frozen drinks as well. We snorkeled to our heart's contentment and watched as boat after boat brought their customers to snorkel on the same reef that we had private access to!! It was so wonderfully relaxing and soothing. I personally recommend that you wear a life vest when snorkeling as the current can be tiring. You can stay out a lot longer with the life vest on! Sherri, thanks so much for making your beautiful property so very affordable! We will be back with our hubbies next time! We look very forward to our next visit. S. Corder (October 2016) ~ Trafford, AL USA
