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.

    Dear Sherri - I just wanted to tell you how much my friend and I enjoyed spending the day at Palmar when we were on a cruise last week. Your staff are some of the most gracious, polite, and accommodating gentlemen I have ever met. This was my second visit to Palmar and the first for my friend. She was overwhelmed by the hospitality, and we both enjoyed the tour and explanation of the butterflies as well. Thank you again for a wonderful day at Palmar. Sincerely, JG J Gourley ~ N/A

    Sherri - Thank you so much for allowing us to use the Palmar Small Beach club. The staff were fantastic. They took very good care of us. The fresh pico was perfect. The grounds were very clean and beautiful. And no hassling salesmen anywhere. We plan on coming there again on our next visit to Cozumel. Thanks again - The Hamiltons G. & A.

    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!

    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

    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.
