Default Tell me about Playa Mia Beach in Cozumel

Can you take a taxi to Play Mia Beach and enter the beach area or do you have to have excursion tickets from the cruise ship to get in? Are you able to get a lounge chair? What are the costs of drinks? Any info will be appreciated. We can't decide whether to buy the excursion tickets that include drinks or go it on our own. Is the area safe?

Cozumel is one of our favorite ports. It is a port that you can easily do on your own without a ship excursion.

If you are looking for a beach resort that is ala cart, then I would recommend Paradise Beach.

We are a family of four and all inclusives like Playa were never a good deal for us because we drink..but not alot.

Paradise Beach has a beautiful new pool. There is no entrance fee, but they do charge $2 for a lounge chair.

The wristbands are OPTIONAL at $12 per person. This includes a ton of nonmotorized land and water toys. The boys always get them..hubby and I do not.

Frozen drinks are $7. (I can't drink more than one)
They also have water and soda. Great food and drinks that are all SAFE.

Taxis to any beach resort in Cozumel will run you $12-15 one way for up to 4 people.

Hope that helps....have a great cruise and a wonderful day in Cozumel.

You can take a cab to Playa Mia and buy admission at the gate. Doing it this way you get to choose how much you want to pay. They offer different levels from basic entry to an all-inclusive with open bar and lunch. Frankly I think the basic entry is the best bargain and just pay-as-you-go for food and drinks. Lots of loungers, a freshwater pool, shops, etc. It is a pleasant place. Cabs are always waiting to take you back to town or the ship.
