Cozumel excursions

I will be taking the 4 night Magic out of Galveston in March with DH and girls, ages 3 and 5. I think I have decided against any Disney excursions as there isn't a whole lot that seemed fun with our age group. I was thinking of doing a beach day somewhere. Please rant or rave about your Cozumel beach experiences. There seem to be so many choices and I can't seem to figure out what is the best option for us. I would be interested in a place with a nice beach/pool and some shady chairs for my fair-skin crew. Oh, and clean!

Thanks for you advice in advance!

Hi--we took a taxi to Nachi Cocom private beach on our cruise a few weeks ago. It's very quiet and laid back. They only let 100 people a day enter. I have some pics on my blog:

If you're looking for a livelier beach, I'd suggest checking out Playa Mia or Mr. Sanchos.

Nachi Cocum. Hands down.


We've taken a taxi to see the Mayan ruins that are ON Cozumel, because we didn't want to take a boat over to the mainland, and that was really, really interesting, but not for children as young as yours. There just really isn't that much to do on Cozumel if you don't go to a beach, shopping, or a bar. With small kids, anyway.

Thank you for sharing your experience on Nachi Cocom. That's where I've decided DS and I will spend our Cozumel day.



I've heard Paradise Beach is also really fun for kids, lots of water toys to play on etc. we're looking for a more mellow experience.

We did Nachi Cocum in January with 8 kids 6yrs and up and I can't say enough about how perfect it was. My kids drove the bartender crazy at the swim up bar at the pool after they found out that they could order virgin bahama mamas and any other frozen drink they could think of! The beach is beautiful and quiet and the atmosphere is really family friendly. Warning- when you first arrive the outside of the resort appears sort of run down which may be a little alarming- you won't regret your choice though!

We did Nachi Cocum with our oldest who was 3 at the time and loved it. Not as crowded, smooth water, nice beach for sand castles (although it's not Destin, FL sand)! Food & Drink right there.

Another fun thing to do is play mini golf. I know Fantasy has this but walk about 5 blacks from the Mexican flag and there is an 18 hole golf course . They have huge lizards there. We have rented a car and driven around the island. We have gone to swim with the Manatee Swim. Much cheaper than the dolphin.
