This is definitely the best place on the island to snorkel, walk right into the water...stick your face in and you'll see fish! Great food and drinks too! Cruse ships make people pay to go on this excursion. They, then give this cute little beach bar a dollar per person. For that dollar, the the cruisers get to use the... More

Loved all the coral and sea life we got to see at this place. $5 to snorkel but free is you buy food and drinks. Beautiful view and great snorkeling.

We visit Cozumel a couple of times a year and always look forward to visiting Playa Corona 2-3 times per trip— especially since Wilma wiped so much out. We usually spend a few hours here, drink several beverages between us, eat a few plates of food, and tip generously. It’s a wonderful place to relax, snorkel, eat and enjoy each... More

Though there were 2 large tourist groups that came through and were quite noisy, you can't beat the view and coziness of this beach. I couldn't get Corona beer on Corona this time but the Sol sufficed. Snorkling gear went up a few dollars, to be expected and if you don't order a $10 minimum of food you will be... More

Shower, restrooms, hammocks, chairs, shades all included here. Stellar snorkeling in a shallow reef garden. You either pay 10$ or order at least one drink and food item. Had great fish fajitas here. Access the sea via slippery steps into a shallow bay. A volleyball court is there as well. No rocks, all sand here

Its 130peso from town to get here, we thought it was free but got charged 5us$ each,quite anoying thing. Snorkling was okey did see some nice fishes. The price for food and beer is overpriced.

This beach club is quite a bit out of the way, and not particularly fancy. Nevertheless, if you're okay with that and really just out for a day in the sea, this is a great place. The reef drop off is fabulous. There is a washroom and hence a place to change, which is always a big plus. We also... More

Randomly found this spot scootering through. First thought it was "touristy", but then found out it had great snorkeling. Saw giant eels, lobsters, barracuda, reef fish galore and even a flounder. If you buy a beer or two, the snorkeling is free and the beer washes out the taste of salt water perfectly. Hammocks and shaded lounging available to hang... More

When we arrived we were approached by a rude worker who demanded $40 for entry. We talked to another kind gentlemen who said we were welcome and did not charge us anything and was very helpful. We stayed and ended up eating there having a great time and seeing wonderful things, including lobster, baracuda, and beautiful purple sea fans. I'm... More

This is a great beach for snorkeling. They do rent equipment ( but I'd recommend purchasing your own mouthpiece) inexpensive, friendly, cold beer, great food, hammocks, but this is NOT a sandy beach where you would take kids or lay out in the sand. This is a very rocky beach. You have to walk across the rocky area to get... More
