We will be in Cozumel for one day on RCCL. We want to go to the beach with our 7 yr old. We do not want to go to one with drunk college students all over the place or where they have inappropiate activities for my 7 year to watch. Which of the beach clubs would be best?
It truly depends on how "active" your 7 year old is.
I recommend Paradise Beach because it is a FREE beach resort. They do not charge an entrance fee. They do not charge for the use of the lounge chairs, tables, umbrellas, CLEAN restrooms, changing rooms or the Internet at the bar. Lockers are available for $4 for the day.
All they ask is that you eat/drink while you are there.
They do offer an OPTIONAL wristband (which means the kids can get it IF they want to...but the parents do not have to) which is $10.00.
This gives you unlimited use to the water toys such as: 2 water trampolines with a bridge, an iceberg, kayaking (there is a minimum age to do it on your own), snorkeling, floats (individual and multi person) and land toys like a bungie trampoline. You can even climb a coconut tree (WHICH I DID LAST WEEK!!! woo hoo) They also have life vests for use for folks want to use them.
We were just there last week and they are getting 3 more GREAT water toys in....but I am not certain of the delivery date. One is a super slide that is going to be great for younger kids.
If the 7 year old climbs the iceberg, be aware that it is a difficult climb and remind them NOT to position themselves under someone else climbing.
Chankanaab Park is $16 each for adults (you can find a $2 coupon on the internet) and I am not sure what they charge for snorkeling. They do have the best beach snorkeling, but be aware that there are times when you have to be a fairly good swimmer.
A taxi will be $12-15 one way to any of the beach resort for up to 4 people.
Have a great day in Cozumel!!!
