Then we invite you to join us and our staff at PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club, located in the Dzul Ha Reef, for a nice, quiet and relaxing day in Cozumel. These days it seems like every beach club in Cozumel is so packed with tourists that visitors are often wanting and searching for a less crowded alternative. If you like a prefer a less chaotic and more personalized environment when visiting Cozumel, then our quiet and quaint PalMar SMALL Snorkel Beach Club will be the perfect spot for you and your group to come spend the day! We really are the "Best Kept Secret in Cozumel"!!!.

PalMar Beach Club is located just a mile or so south of downtown San Miguel and is enclosed with walls, fences and gates on all sides. As PalMar sits in front of a 10,000 square foot private beachside residence it provides a unique feeling of a more home-style experience. Inside our walls you will find a freshwater swimming pool (great for novice snorkelers to practice their snorkeling techniques), Jacuzzi spa area, showers, rinse tanks, restrooms and lockers as well as available snorkel equipment gear (mask, snorkel and fins) and vests for rent. Surrounding the pool and spa areas is a large decked area with plenty of loungers, chairs and tables for your relaxation pleasure! The grounds inside feature both sunlit areas to soak up our "Caribbean Paradise" rays and also natural shady areas from the numerous trees for those needing to cool off.

You will also find our friendly and helpful staff ready to provide you and your group everything you need to make your stay at PalMar Beach Club a wonderful experience. You will find a quaint snack bar area where you will be able to purchase tasty freshly made-to-order snacks (guacamole, pico de gallo, ceviche, quesadillas, etc.) and a nice selection of beverages (bottled water, soda, beer and a selection of tropical mixed drinks). Our staff is always more than happy to make you a tasty snack or whip up some liquid refreshment during your time here at PalMar Beach Club!

PalMar's Beach and Ocean area is just a few steps outside our gates where you will see our beach area surrounded by a retaining wall filled with sand, palm trees, potted plants, loungers, tables and chairs for any guests that prefer a waterfront, beachside day in paradise There are no crazy jet skis buzzing around constantly nor massive water mountains to scale out front at PalMar Beach Club. Instead, we invite you to enjoy a relaxing day lounging on our beach under our palm trees! If you want to snorkel and swim in our world famous Dzul Ha Reef, you will find an abundance of incredible coral reefs, colorful fish and marine life here at PalMar! The beach-entry is a few steps down from our beach area directly into the pristine waters of the Caribbean. Do not forget to bring your underwater camera to memorize your time underwater! Plus our dedicated staff will keep a watch out for you on the beach and keep the drinks and snacks coming as you need them!

We can and do limit the number of guests inside to a maximum of fifty (50) at any given time to ensure a quality and enjoyable experience for everyone.

I read about your beautiful beach club and would like some information. We have 7 in our party and would like to reserve as indicated on the INSIDER website. M. Denobrega ~ N/A

Dear Sherri - I just wanted to tell you how much my friend and I enjoyed spending the day at Palmar when we were on a cruise last week. Your staff are some of the most gracious, polite, and accommodating gentlemen I have ever met. This was my second visit to Palmar and the first for my friend. She was overwhelmed by the hospitality, and we both enjoyed the tour and explanation of the butterflies as well. Thank you again for a wonderful day at Palmar. Sincerely, JG J Gourley ~ N/A

We have been coming to Cozumel for 20 years. PalMar Beach Club is a perfect place to enjoy Cozumel. The shore snorkeling is the best on the entire Island. The sea life is wonderful; you can safely leave your items in a locker. Enjoy drinks and have lunch. It is not a large loud beach club it is perfect. Remember wonderful things come in small boxes, and in this case it is a diamond location with wonderful staff. The other phrase can be "location, location"! P.

Sherri, We had the most wonderful time with you in May! You and your staff made our weekend there in Cozumel with your great hospitality. The grounds are beautiful, food was great and the snorkeling ~ well my group just could not get enough and were amazed by the tropical sealife there off your beach. We look so much forward to coming back and seeing you again very soon. Tell the staff thanks again and say hello to the family for us as well. Take care:0) ....Happy Cruise Passenger J.

We chose PalMar to spend our day in Cozumel. It was fantastic because there were no crowds at all! We rented some snorkeling gear and had a great time. We're going on another cruise next March and have already decided to come back to PalMar. Your staff was terrific and they DID make the best guacamole we've ever had!! Thank you again for opening up your place. The Bailey's ~ Melbourne FL USA
