Default Playa Sol Beach Club or Chankanaab Park in Cozumel?

I have a few questions if anybody can help. My husband and I are sailing the Voyager, Western Carribean, next month. The ship offers an excursion to Play Sol Beach Club for $28.00 which does not include transportation. It does however, include open bar, use of facilities and water toys. Would it be cheaper to take your own taxi there and pay for admission? Is this place worth going to? What about Chankanaab Park? Does anyone have any opinions as to which place is better? We are looking for a nice beach to lie out at and to do a little snorkeling. Any suggestions?

We are wondering the same thing. We would like to spend the day at Playa Sol. Does anyone know the admission price if you don't book through the ship? On their website it shows differen't packages but no prices.

Hi Gilligan,

For Beach info, you can check out this website. It gives pricing info.

However, we still are not sure which beach we want to go to. I heard that San Francisco Beach and Mr. Sanchos is pretty good.

Happy Sailing!

We ended up at Paradise Beach not far from Dzul Ha and Chankanaab last Friday. We rented a car from Alamo (VW bug convertible) and drove the coast and just turned into Paradise beach by accident. All watersports were free and the food was great! You pick a lounge chair under an unbrella and the waiter will bring you food or drink. They have a blow up iceberg which you climb to the top and slide down into the water. There is a water trampoline, sea kayaks, snorkeling equipment and water mattresses. They have great bathrooms, changing rooms and showers as well.

It was the best accident I ever came across in my life!

Just so you know, we heard Dzul Ha was good for snorkeling so we stopped there on our way back from Paradise Beach. It was $10 to rent snorkeling equipment for one person, no time max though. Not worth the money especially after being in Paradise the facilities were nothing in comparison!

How far is Paradise Beach from the piers?

Is there an admission fee/rental fee for beach chairs?

Thanks!

How do you go about renting the car from Alamo? Did you do it before you left home?
Thanks
