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!
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, 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
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
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
Sherri and Mauricio thanks for a great day at Palmar Beach Club. We loved the SMALL size of your Beach Club and you made us feel special. The Snorkeling was wonderful. The Snacks were perfect. We loved your swimming pool and the ability to change our clothes after swimming in the clean bathrooms. We will return! Andy & Patti ~ USA
