Avoid the mobs of the other big cruiser beaches and join the staff of PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club for a nice, quiet relaxing day on the beach in Cozumel. Seems like every beach in Cozumel is over populated these days and folks are looking for less crowded alternatives. If this is how you feel in Cozumel, then our quiet, intimate PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club just might be the place for you or your group.
Since it sits in front of a 10,000 sq. ft. private beachside residence, PalMar is more of a home style experience. There are no jet skis buzzing or water mountains to scale out front at PalMar. Instead, guest will simply enjoy incredible snorkeling and swimming right in the heart of Dzul Ha ~ Cozumel's premier beach entry snorkel spot on the island.
Completely enclosed with walls/gates on all sides, PalMar can and does limit the number of guests inside to 50 at any given time so as to ensure a quality experience for everyone. Aside from the amazing shore snorkeling just in front, Palmar has a fresh water pool and spa area, showers, restrooms and lockers as well as a snack bar and beverages and snorkel equipment rental.
To ensure you have the best possible experience, PalMar does require a Reservation & Deposit in Advance (1 Week Advance Notice)! Do not miss this beautiful, quiet beach and a day relaxing under the palms in Cozumel! Please submit your reservation request promptly to enjoy our little slice of paradise!
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
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.

I considered your advice to drop by & remembered reading that most public beaches get really crowded if there are a lot of cruise ships in port. There were 7 ships in Cozumel on Saturday & I was prepared, got off the ship first thing at 9 with husband and snorkel gear in tow & inquired about taxi rates. I was a little apprehensive when the taxi organizer didn't know where Palmar was but I had your directions & coupon printed out so I told them it was between the two hotels and mentioned the beach name & all was well. I then realized it was a blessing for them not to know where I was going - that had to mean it wouldn't be too popular/crowded!
I believe we met your husband Mauricio? He was very nice and made us feel very comfortable, showed us to a locker and we were off across the street. A bit hard to get in the water with all the rocks (this is what makes the water so clear!) but it was beautiful & shallow snorkeling with lots of neat corral - and 2 different 2 ft. barracudas guarded the shore.
When we came back we ordered guacamole and chips as well as a mango and pina colada daiquiri. It was obvious it was all just prepared and really fresh - best guacamole I've ever had, the chips were fresh, and the shakes were delicious. In summary, your location was beautiful, thank you for opening your home as a beach club so we could get away from the crowds, we felt so special! Mauricio was as good a host as he was a chef! We'll definitely be recommending Palmar! G. Nielsen ~ Cruise Passenger
Hi Sherri, I'm putting together our scrapbook from our vacation and wanted to thank you again for your hospitality at PalMar Estate Beach Club! We had a great time at your place in Cozumel. It was nice to have such a wonderful place to go while we were in a place that we had never been to before! I have been giving a lot of people at work your info since I know quite a few of them visit that area for vacations. Thanks so much! The Taylors ~ Portland, OR 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
