The Corona Beach Club is a fairly run down bar and grill that offers way over priced food and drinks for those who want to use their beach. Your choice is to either pay $5 a person to use the beach or purchase lunch and drinks (will probably run you about $25 a person). They do offer a changing area... More

We spent the day at Corona Beach, snorkeling, eating and drinking and enjoying the day without the cruise ship crowds. Met the owner Rogelio Dominguez and had a few laughs, he thought I was an old friend; a little older and less weight! Took some friends who were snorkeling for the first time. A very good place for novice snorkelers;... More

We've been there multiple times over the years, but this time was disappointing. Prices had gone up significantly, it looked more run down than usual and service was not great. The snorkeling has always been good here, which was the only reason we stayed for a while. Some of the best snorkeling area is now roped off. It won't be... More

A quiet out of the way place. Looking for where the locals go to chill out? this is the place. A small bar with typical selection of food it isn't anything special to look at but that isn't the reason to go. Go to relax and enjoy a siesta of a day. Plastic chairs sitting under thatch umbrellas, even has... More

Visited Playa Corona for the first time this weekend. I loved the snorkeling...it was awesome...lots of fish (they are used to being fed here!) and loads of super coral that you can snorkel to from shore. Tons of fan coral and a really pleasant shallow snorkel. The downside was the beach bar itself. This place looks like it hasn't seem... More

First off we came in on the Royal Caribbean vision of the seas cruise. We decided to rent a car as there were six of us and we wanted to see some of the island. First we went shopping downtown which was somewhat of a disappointment. We then went to a ruins on the north end of the island. Our... More

We only had a few hours in Cozumel, as we arrived by cruise ship. I researched beaches with good snorkeling that were nearby. This beach got pretty good reviews, and I've not been to other beaches in Cozumel, but it was much more rustic than expected. The fee to enter is $5 pp. Not bad at all. They do expect... More

This is our all time favorite beach dive! A 30 ' wall with a large assortment or creatures. A great underwater photography dive site. There is an underwater cave at this location and it is posted as such. It is advised to not to enter! It is not a tunnel!

Stopped in Cozumel on our cruise. We wanted a quiet place to snorkel and had seen this spot on TA. For an $8 taxi ride, we arrived and there was no one else there. We spent a couple of hours of pretty nice snorkeling when a cruise tour came along. At first we were disappointed with the group being there,... More

Ok, before I begin, I just want to say that I have nothing against cruises--I'm more of an independent traveler, but I acknowledge that there is definitely something to be said for vacations where everything is pre-arranged for you. Obviously, the downside of getting a package deal is that you won't have the freedom to really get out and explore,... More
