We went here late in the day (4:00ish) just to snorkel. WE had a beer and the snorkeling was great, but personally, I wouldn't eat here. It looked a bit run-down. There is still lots of fan coral here and we saw lots of fish.

After discovering that Cozumel is full of these beach parks that remind me of Disneyland, we went searching for small private beaches where we could have an individual rather than a mass experience. Playa Corona offers a small beach and very clean water where you can snorkel. We just swam and it was great. There is an entry fee of... More

First of all I just want to make it clear that I am not reviewing the snorkelling here but just the beach club itself. The snorkelling was excellent and based on that alone I would give 5 out of 5. We chose this place based on previous reviews - it sounded like a perfect chilled spot for some snorkelling with... More

For years, while we stayed at an AI 2 miles south, we have run by Playa Corona more times than we can count (we are distance runners and we run several miles every day we are in Cozumel). This December, we decided to take a closer look at this unique beach club, primarily to do some snorkeling. When we travel,... More

This was my first at Playa Corona but won't be my last. Staff was really nice, prices good. Walk in ocean access, snorkeling pretty good.

This is fantastic for light snorkeling. They have food and alcohol, but that's not the main selling point. This is a quiet, not-busy area with fairly minimal amenities, this is not a resort. There is no pool. It is, however, beautiful and you can see a forest of sea fans, live coral, parrot fish, butterfly fish, longspine squirrelfish, Damselfish, tangs,... More

I am not rating this place based on the food but on the location and the snorkeling. The owner was really friendly and accommodating. We accessed the reef via his restaurant on the beach and it was amazing. The water was very calm compared to the rest of the beaches we had driving by and played in earlier. The place... More

This place is awesome for walk in snorkeling. We saw a large variety of fish just steps away from the entry to the water. Quiet food and drinks are good. Staff was very nice. Had a lot of fun here.

I had found this place online, reading about it being quiet was the selling point. We got a taxi for 120/140 pesos and stayed for a few hours, drinking a couple of beers each. The drinks weren't too pricey but the food was more than anywhere else we had been so we went back to town for food. Was a... More

A favorite of ours and usually not too crowded. Go for sunset or earlier in the day to snorkel. Food is reasonable.
