Club Cozumel Caribe – Cozumel, Mexico

Club Cozumel Caribe - Cozumel, Mexico

Last October, I went on a cruise to Mexico with one of my best friends. We went crazy exploring cenotes on our trip, but for our other destination, we just wanted to rest and relax on a beach in the sun. We didn’t even care which beach – but that’s easy since pretty much every beach in Cozumel is beautiful.

We basically came off the ship and jumped into the first van going to a beach. The van took us to a place called Club Cozumel Caribe, which we quickly assumed was one of the touristy places that the cruise ship tours go to, but we didn’t care. The beach was absolutely beautiful so it didn’t matter to us if it was a tourist spot or not.

Club Cozumel Caribe was once a resort, but (if I’m getting the story straight) after a hurricane hit the resort and ruined the hotel, they weren’t able to rebuild due to insurance problems. So the owner made it open to the public for a small fee to get in. There is now a restaurant and bar on the premises, along with a place that does tequila tasting and a tour on how to make tequila, a challenge course type place, and more.

We had a blast for a while just reading from our Kindles and soaking up the sun. We were in the water quite a bit, too, which was perfect. Later, we did the tequila tour and tasting (which was fun AND yummy). It was a great day, and exactly what we needed.

This Cozumel beach was perfect for two girls who just needed some water, sand, and sun. I mean, just look at that water!

    Hello Bailey, hoe you are doing great. I have visited Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tullum. not fan of Cancun but the others were very nice. I did not like cause was too touristy. Is Cozumel suffering the same way or can you still find quite place to spend a nice sun bath? I will cruise in the Caribbeans but still have to choose the itinerary. Cozumel is on many circuits. We will fly from Europe and don t want to make the wrong choice.

    I can’t get over the colour of the water! It’s so vibrant – I don’t think I’ve ever seen water so blue. It must have been an amazing trip!

    I have heard so many great things about Cozumel. And this is just another one to add to the positive pile! The water looked gorgeous and it sounds like you had a very relaxing time.

    In about 7 months we’ll be in the Cancun area and I think we might have a day or two in Cozumel as well. By the look of these great pictures, I think we’ll be in for a TREAT! Clear water, sunny weather, and chilled mental state… here we come!

      Yep – I’m sure you’ll love it! I haven’t been to Cancun; I’ll have to check your site later on to see how you like it.

    I visited Cozumel forever ago on a cruise and have always wanted to go back to see more! We were actually going to do a destination wedding in Tulum and decided not to. We were going to do a day trip to Cozumel to revisit one of the days, but sadly it’t not happening anymore. One of the things I was most excited about were all the cenotes! They look gorgeous! Your beach photos are making me rethink the wedding afterall 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, I absolutely loved the cenotes and we’re going to go back soon (not on a cruise) to visit more cenotes! I’d love to visit Tulum. We’ll have to go there the next time we’re in the area.

    Doesn;t look THAAAAAAAT touristy but like us, you probably found a shot where hardly anyone was in it. hahah
    But wow that place looks amazing that who cares!?

    Another dream destination, Mexico beaches! Damn I need to get off my work desk and travel more.

      Haha, you’re so right – I always try to take shots with less people in them. We were also here during off-season, so it wasn’t as packed as it usually is (thankfully!).

    I would love to swim in the ocean and tequila taste! I heard that Cozumel is a huge tourist destination, though! Good for everyone for accessing the awesome for a small fee, though!

      Yes you’re right, it is a huge tourist destination. Luckily, we were there during low season. I don’t handle crowds well! 🙂

    This beach looks so much nicer than the beach that I went to in Cozumel. My boyfriend and I did a Caribbean cruise with a stop in Cozumel last year and went to a resort to horse ride on the beach and then hang out. This beach looks much prettier with clearer water. Hope you had a fun cruise!

    How sad that the resort was not able to be rebuilt due to insurance issues. But I’m glad to hear that they were able to make it thrive again by making it open to the public for a small fee. The photos are absolutely gorgeous!

      Yeah, apparently they’re doing better as a public place than they ever did as a resort – so more power to them, right? 🙂
