If you are in that vacation mode and looking for a good time, come here. If you're shy but like to have fun, come here, they'll get you up and runnin. If you're lookin for a waterpark full of toys walk 20ft down wind and pay $12 a head and do that but I'd still come back here to eat and drink. If you noticed they dont have pro pics on here, they just have visitor pics. They don't try to mislead anyone, they have a great small beach, a water trampoline and plenty of chairs. THE PEOPLE who work here is why this place is known around the world. They are fun and will go out of their way to bring the fun out in you and if you are openminded and energetic the sky is the limit. Spread a little money around and you'll truly unleash the beast. These guys arent cheapskates either. buy a round of shots for you and your bartender and waiter and they will respond in kind, the way it used to be in the states before the PC police took over. And remember the best way to arrive here is fresh off a tour with Chi Chi Charters, they'll bring you here and you'll get the VIP treatment. Or take a Chi Chi tour right off the beach there if you want to begin at CnC. To me , Coz downtown is a huge tourist trap full of peddlars who overwhelm you trying to get you into their stores, they gotta make a living I get it but its oppressive and they should dial it way back, they are forcing people away with their tactics. But out here away from downtown is layed back and beautiful. About those beach vendors, I met a couple of them, Eric and Christian. Very cool and both gave the 2 birthday girls in our group free gifts from the heart without expecting anything, how awesome. We fully expected to run into the tattoo sleeved drunken thug-poser crowd here and even the couple of em that were there didnt bother us and didnt stay long. A side note here, tattoos are no longer unique but rather the new norm instead of the exception and why is it that every guy that gets a sleeve these days is forever wearing sleeveless shirts and thinks hes Lil John or MnM , I dont get it. And why do these guys always strut around lookin for a reason to have a bad day. In my day we didnt tollerate this foolishness, we just had good times. Again we didnt run into that here but we seen a lot of that crowd in town, sausage fest. Go here with an open mind and a focus on having a good time and tip and buy a little , you'll see the magic. These guys made us feel like the only people in the joint and they were hitting on my gorgeous 50yr old wife nonstop, very tastefully and really made her day

We were lucky enough to stay at the Secrets Aura which was within walking distance of Carlos and Charlies. This place is SO much fun!! The staff greets you with hugs and open arms. Good beer selection. Take a good picture with the staff because it will be printed out and offered to you for a price.

We were in Cozumel this last weekend and my family of 7 went to Carlos and Charlies on Sat. Dec 14th. We ordered 7 soda's (cokes, DP and Diet cokes). Only 4 ordered off the menu.1 - chicken fajitas, 1 - chicken tacos and 2- cheese enchiladas. The total price was $108.00 US dollars, what are you kidding me. turns out that when we ordered the soft drinks they put them in souvenir cups, when we told the manager we did not order souvenir cups he acted like he didn't understand English. One soft drink cost over $7. bucks we were totally ripped off. We tried to get this removed from our tab, but of course he didn't understand any English at that point. We did not take the souvenir cups and are Very disappointed in Carlos and Charles, have been there many times but this is the first time I felt totally ripped off. We will never go there again and I will make sure that I will spread the word that they will rip you off.

We wanted a beach day away from our cruise ship. A local recommended Carlos' n Charlies about a 15 minute (at $15) cab ride from the Carnival pier. I was familiar with the restaurant/bar in town but not the beach.

The fun atmosphere and wait staff's friendliness is the same as in other Carlos' n Charlie's locations. The beach atmosphere is a big plus. All sorts of beach "toys" to use for free or in some cases rent. There's no cover charge and your second GREAT margarita is free as well.

If it's fun you're looking for, this is the place!

We visited their gift shop. Went to purchase a $12 baseball cap. Lady at checkout said that our American Express card was declined! That has NEVER happened to us before. She ran it again and told us it still was declined. She told us we had to pay another way. Returning home, contacted charge card co....she was entering numbers wrong so the charge would be declined! They had an Amer. express decal on door and register but didn't want to pay the higher fees this card charges! Would never go back there again!
