About PalMar Snorkel Beach Club
PalMar Snorkel Beach Club has been providing a peaceful and relaxing alternative to our clients from the massive tourist beaches since 2001! We are small, yet provide some of the best beach access snorkeling into the world famous Dzul Ha Reef directly off our private beach area. On the beach club side, you will find lockers, restrooms, showers, rinse tank, freshwater swimming pool and jacuzzi and plenty of loungers and table/chairs for your comfort. Our snack bar has a nice selection of tasty local snacks (guacamole, pico and ceviche are very popular) plus a nice selection of ice cold beverages. At the rear of PalMar is our Patas y Alas Butterfly Sanctuary that reopened in 2016. You can do a self guided tour or our staff will be happy to take you through to experience the butterflies and the host plants native to Cozumel. Sanctuary is open Monday thru Saturday and closed on Sunay. We hope you will come visit us and spend the day soon!

I’m rating this establishment so low mainly due to the actions of the server. The food was good and the main meal portions large. The side dish of guacamole was very small and expensive. I think they forget to put the tequila in the overpriced...More
