Join in the fun with these entertaining and affectionate creatures - give and receive a sea lion kiss (watch out for those whiskers - they tickle!), pet them, watch them jump over you, and be prepared to laugh at their amazing sense of humor!.
The cruiser beaches all pay incentives to taxi drivers and tour providers to stop at their locations all along the new highway route but many small beach operators can't afford these premiums and get little traffic. Located just minutes from downtown and the ship piers but on the OLD beachfront highway, PalMar Beach offers excellent snorkeling and a beautiful fresh water pool! Gates close after 50 people ~ reservations a must! So go & relax away from the crowds!!!

A Personal Note from Sherri "COVID-19 - Stay safe!!"
It's really hard to know what to say during times like these when it seems the world has turned sideways on its axis for reasons that none of us have any control over at all. Everyone is having to wrap their heads around this irrevocably changed state of affairs we are facing now with the spread of COVID-19.
Here on the island last week (3/10) we were in the midst of one of the best High Seasons we've experienced in many years with hotels near full capacity and 35 ships in port. Then, in less than 72 hours (Friday to Monday) we had virtually no ships in port for this week and hotels processing cancellations as quickly as they could check emails or answer the phone. Restaurants and tour providers have sent most workers home and hundreds of taxi drivers have parked their vehicles and are working on a rotational basis to spread around what little business there is.
APRIL 1, 2020 UPDATE: The economic shutdown of the island has continued the past two weeks with only "essential" businesses open and free movement about becoming more and more restricted as time moves on. Public transport is now only operating until 8pm, ferry crossings to/from Playa are down to 1 trip daily and police are patrolling the streets with loud speakers advising everyone to stay in their homes. Thus far only a few cases reported here on the island.
It goes without saying that the economic effects of COVID-19 ravaging other countries has already been devastating to our little island paradise. While we may not yet have many identified cases in Mexico, QRoo or on the island, the economy has been rocked to the core. That being said, everyone fully realizes that countless others are suffering immensely more right now and the best course of action is safety for all.
We appreciate all of you who visit the island and help keep our little tourism economy going and all we can ask for now is that you do whatever it takes to keep yourself and your family safe and away from COVID-19 exposure so that you can be here with us again in Cozumel as soon as possible!!
Meanwhile, we'll keep the Dos X's on ice, the tequila cold and our fishing line in the water until you can get here again! Stay safe!
