    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

    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 USA

    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 USA

    Sherri, We had the most wonderful time with you in May! You and your staff made our weekend there in Cozumel with your great hospitality. The grounds are beautiful, food was great and the snorkeling ~ well my group just could not get enough and were amazed by the tropical sealife there off your beach. We look so much forward to coming back and seeing you again very soon. Tell the staff thanks again and say hello to the family for us as well. Take care:0) ....Happy Cruise Passenger J. Wellborn ~ Cragford, AL USA

    Just wanted to tell you my wife and I have been coming to Cozumel for 20 years and we had one of our best days at your club yesterday. Enrique was great. Hoping you get your butterfly's back soon.... T. Higgins & S. Field-Feb 2015 ~ Hudson, WI USA

    WOW!!!! So glad to have stumbled upon Cozumel Insider and found Sherri and PalMar Small Beach Club. Personable, responsive, tailored, every whim satisfied- from drinks to beach chairs, to the best guacamole ever made, to wonderful conversation with Sherri and staff. This service is simply not found at larger tourist beaches and clubs. We are now loyal guests and will return and return and return. Sherri's story is most intriguing and it was entertaining and awe-inspiring to hear her tell it. Our only regret is that our RC cruise ship was departing and we had to head back to port much sooner than we wanted to. Martin- you are AWESOME! thanks for the photos you emailed and all the coordination leading up to our very short visit. We know you didn't have to do that- but it matters and have made us fans for life. Love you guys! John and Sarah ~ Pennsylvania, USA
