Paradise Beach or Nachi Cocum in Cozumel?

Thoughts? It'll be me and DS12. We're total beach people. We'll grab floats and build sand castles, swim and eat far too much.


Thank you!

Do you have a link? I'm not set on either but want to start planning. What the cost and what's included? I'm guessing they're all sort of similar.

I just did Nachi Cochum, but if you have a 12 year old - I think Mr. Sanchos would be a better fit. Nachi is very laid back and I saw hardly any kids or younger people.

I'd do Nachi in a second because of that! But if you want floats and stuff - then I'd tell you Mr. Sanchos. They are right next door to each other. I know Nachi was like $55 for all inclusive. Didn't look at Mr. Sanchos at all for price.

Awesome, thank you! I'll Google and see what I can find.

Paradise Beach is lovely and super kid-friendly. They have big inflatables int he ocean ($12.00 each if you want to use them), snorkeling, a huge pool in addition to the beach and super clean facilities. It is not all inclusive like Nachi, but food and drinks were reasonable and service was great.

I can't compare to any of the other beaches, but I can tell you we loved paradise beach! Very clean & beautiful landscaping. Liked having the pool & the beach both.

Lots of stuff for everyone. My 13 yr old said paradise beach was his favorite part of the whole cruise!

Agree with Paradise Beach! We don't drink so the money is a little high at the AI's. PB is beautiful.

I like the kid friendly idea. Is Nachi not kid friendly?

I won't drink very much either but the AI includes like bottle water and stuff too I think. Thank you so much.



Nachi looks great because its mellow and fairly exclusive as far as crowds. But I do want kid friendly as well.

We did Paradise Beach on our 12/1 cruise and that was our entire group's favorite of all the ports. We had an absolute blast! The beach was fantastic with all the water toys and kayaks...the pool is BEAUTIFUL! It really was the best memory!!!

Sorry if I seemed to imply that Nachi wasn't kid friendly. We have never tried it! Paradise Beach was also my kids' favorite stop/day of our whole cruise. Our entire extended family (adults and kids) all paid to use the inflatables in the ocean and had a blast together. We had the same server the whole day and he set up our chairs, umbrella, brought lunch and drinks... They also had a couple of exotic colorful birds there that kids could hold and have their picture taken. They have a few little shops too with beachwear and souveniers. Very cute.

We did Nachi on March 2012 with our daughters (5 & 3 at the time) & had a blast! It was super laid back and the girls loved it. The pool was fabulous and the food was great as well. Beautiful water & beach and the wait staff paid a ton of attention to us. We really like the AI atmosphere and would go back again in a minute!

My son lived Paradise beach. He was 10 at the time. His favorite part was "racing" his non athletic father to the top of the iceberg. We also did kayaking and paddle boards. I am pretty sure these were included in the cost of the braclets.

Tough choice- looks like I can't go wrong.

I'm leaning toward Nachi as it seems more mellow and less crowded. Paradise looks great too though.

Glad to read so many positive reviews about both.

Anything super in particular you all enjoyed about the club you chose?
