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 "Surviving Winter's Middle Part"
I've been waiting now for about a week for a really bright, hot sunny day to come along and inspire me to write about our gorgeous Cozumel weather this time of year. And I'm still waiting! I don't know what has Mother Nature ticked off these days but we've just had some real cold snaps every few days since mid- December. Of course it's warm and sunny for the most part of every day but the nights have been quite chilly lately. A lot of islanders have suffered with flu like illnesses believed to be caused by the constant temperature fluctuations.
OK, I admit, everything is relative so most all the tourist here are, of course, still wearing shorts, flip flops and swimsuits and sunning themselves every day. But I've been walking around dazed and confused from the cold wearing my leggings, long sleeve tops and sox! As I tie up my tennies in the mornings now, inside my shoes my toes are like, "Wait, what is this?? We want to be FREE in our flip flops!"
I realize all you folks waaaay farther north have really had some cold weather but I thought it might make you feel better knowing that it's just cold all over the place right now ~ even waaay down here in the tropics! The good news for us here in Cozumel is that any cold snap is really short-lived compared to everywhere else! So go ahead and plan a quick trip down here if you can just to escape the cold weather for a few days! We'll be waiting for you ~ all bundled up in our parkas! ;-)
