Cozumel has some of the best beach clubs in the Mexican Caribbean. Mostly located on the calm western side of the island, you’ll find everything from pools, sun loungers, food and drinks, plus special touches that are unique to each club.
Cozumel is a popular stop on Caribbean cruise routes, and is also an easy day trip from mainland Playa del Carmen, making it a busy and bustling place most days of the year. It’s a great jumping-off point for some of the best diving tours in the area and also has some impressive Mayan ruins to explore.
But you can’t always be on the go – sometimes you just want to relax, kick back and soak up some sun with a cocktail in hand. So here, we’ll run you through some of the best beach clubs on the island where you can do just that.
Paradise Beach Club is an all-inclusive experience that’s ideal for families. With a picture-perfect beach, as well as the island’s largest heated swimming pool, the cherry on top is the vast selection of water activities, including SUP boards and kayaks, inflatable slides, and other water toys that are great for kids – although Mom and Dad can join in too!
All your food and drinks (served across two restaurants) are included in the entry price, and you can choose to set up camp on the oceanfront sun loungers or focus your day around the pool.
- All-Inclusive – USD $64
- Fun Pass and other add ons – additional cost
Mr Sancho’s is by far the most well-known of Cozumel’s beach bars and it’s deserving of its notoriety. A family-run establishment, it offers an all-inclusive experience but at a lower price point than some neighboring clubs.
Located 15 minutes south of Cozumel’s cruise piers, you’ll find this 1,500 feet stretch of prime beachfront, where you can settle in for a full day of doing virtually nothing while being served delicious eats and all the drinks you want.
You can purchase add-on experiences, including horseback riding and parasailing. Or try out Mr Sancho’s Spa Suites, a luxury couples experience, with your own cabana, private pool, and couple’s massage, on top of the regular All-Inclusive experience.
Entry fee: All-Inclusive day pass USD $60
Buccanos Beach Club is only a couple of miles north of Cozumel’s Centro or main downtown area, making it easy to access straight from the ferry. It’s also one of the most popular options for locals, so you may find more Mexicans here than in other beach clubs – and that’s got to tell you something, right?
Buccanos has beautiful beach frontage – kind of a prerequisite. But, it also offers guests a lovely restaurant serving up simple (and very tasty) Mexican food, a large pool, plus a fantastic selection of tequilas in its store.
Entry fee: USD $20 or MEX $360, for use of the beach, pool, sun loungers, snorkel equipment, and wi-fi.
The Cabana Beach is an exclusive deluxe beach club experience, just south of downtown, with 12 private cabanas kitted out with comfortable sun loungers, your own concierge, wifi and charge points, and the most wonderful rocky beachfront position.
Hammocks are dotted around the frontage, where you can gently sway as you listen to the waves lapping the shore. There are add-ons available, including massages and a photo session, so you can remember the day for years to come. You can also snorkel the impressive Chankanaab Reef using the snorkel equipment included with cabana hire.
This is a popular day trip for cruise ship passengers, so we’d advise you to book ahead.
- Entry only from USD $10 per person
- Cabanas USD $50, including fruit platter, snorkel gear, and towels
