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!
