Visited palancar 12 years ago & always wanted to return. Finally went back today & was really sad to see it has become overcrowded with no interest in providing decent food or service

We have been going here for the last three years when our cruise stops in Cozumel. This last time the prices were higher and the service and food did not seem to be the same quality or quanity as in the past. Perhaps new owners?

We stopped briefly as part of a tour, enjoyed some delicious Nachos ( ask for their hot sauce - wow!). We paddled in the sea, but did find the beach narrow, and water shoes would have helped with rocks.

6 of us will be arriving on the Carnival Fantasy on Saturday, July 8. Can you please tell me how much the taxi ride will be to get to Playa Palancar? Some of us would like to snorkel. Can we arrange for a snorkel trip after we arrive? The last time we went to Playa Palancar we snorkeled the Columbia and Palancar reefs and it was awesome. We love your beach! My husband is a little timid in the water. Is there any snorkeling close to the beach? Thank you kindly for your help!
