One of Cozumel’s all-inclusive resort beaches, Playa Paradise is a fine stretch of pale sand lined by tall palms and sun loungers. Roughly 20 minutes by road from San Miguel de Cozumel, the beach edges the island’s southwest coast. Facing back towards Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and Riviera Maya region, its waters are relatively protected and therefore generally good for swimming as well as other water sports.
Although sea temperatures average 80-85 °F throughout the year, the resort also contains Cozumel’s largest heated pool, which wraps around a thatch-roofed bar. Largely backed by indigenous forest, Playa Paradise is open daily during daylight hours with a small hourly fee for adults giving access to sun loungers and umbrellas. You can instead purchase the fun pass permitting use of additional gear such as stand-up paddleboards and snorkels.
Since Playa Paradise is popular with families, couples and cruise ship passengers it can get busy. Morning visits are therefore recommended.
