    Directions to PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club
    By Taxi:

  • 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

    Sherri: wanted to let you know what a great time we had at your resort. It was exactly what I was hoping for!

    The personal attention was wonderful, as both you and your staff were so friendly and helpful, and we were warmly welcomed as if we were "old" friends. The quaintness of the private home and the nice beach were great, and the fish we saw while snorkeling off your beach were better than the ones we saw during an expensive excursion booked thru the cruise ship in Belize!

    I will definitely recommend your website to others, and I've already told many friends about the Palmar Beach Club. Thank you again for a wonderful time in Cozumel and I wish you all the best in your endeavors. Cathy, Peter and the boys ~ Rochester Hills, MI 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 had a great time and your place was a highlight of the whole trip. Thanks again for all the help and hospitality. I hope to make it back someday and we will pass on all you info to others headed your way. Thanks again!! P.S. - Send me some links on where I can leave some reviews for your place!! Thanks B.

    My son and I decided to avoid the cruise ship excursions for snorkeling and try Pal Mar Estate Beach Club. I read a number of reviews and figured it was worth a shot. We have gone on 4 cruises now and always done the cruise line sponsored excursions and without a hesitation this is by far the best thing we have done. Pal Mar was nice, clean, very quiet and the staff was beyond awesome. One of the most relaxing times we have had. The Pico de Gallo was fresh and hand made and son wont touch tomatoes and such and he ate it all up...wonderful! The snorkeling was a lot of fun and we saw tons of fish, starfish, coral, etc. and even a Moray eel. Very cool and spooky too to be honest. We had a blast and would do it again in a heartbeat. With cab fare both ways, Pal Mar admission, 4 beers for me and two sodas for my son along with chips and Pico we spent only 65$. We snorkeled for almost 4 hours....exhausted but a blast! We must have seen at least 8 excursion trips come through the area we were at and they are there maybe 45 min to an hour and gone. It would have cost us 3 times what we paid to do the ship excursion and we got to relax and snorkel all day. Can't recommend it enough and we will definitely be back when our next cruise stops in Cozumel. Thank you so much for your hospitality!! M. Schomaker-Feb. 2015 ~ Elk River, MN USA

    Just finished cruise to Cozumel 5/23/2015. I had looked at info about PalMar Estate before going but did not make decision to go until the day our ship ported in Cozumel. I was with a small group of 4 and it was hard to communicate with my group prior to the trip. We went downtown first and when that got old real quick, I reminded the group of this location. It was still hard to get approval by everyone. I finally said, "we are taking a chance and going". We got a taxi (the taxi drivers act like they have never heard of it, but we took the information from this site which includes directions). We are so glad we went, it was the highlight of our cruise. The bathroom was clean, the employees were so accommodating, it was away from tourist crowds and the snorkeling was terrific. Only $13 (which includes a couple of beers) each to use their facility and beach. Enrique was an employee there who made us the best Pico de Gallo and guacamole I have ever had and served us on the beach. He was so sweet, we would have put him in our pocket and taken him back to Texas with us if we could. We would go there again definitely! G. Coldwell-May 2015 ~ Dallas, TX USA
