Cozumel Private Beach and Reef Tour

Riviera Elite crew’s choice for favorite tour!

What's included:

Below you can see what is included in this tour














From the Puerto Aventuras marina, we make our way across the Caribbean to the southern side of Cozumel Island. On our tours we always troll fish along the way. This is an activity anyone on board can participate in and whatever catch you reel in can also be prepared fresh for you by the crew!

Once at the coast of Cozumel, we’ll anchor in front of one of the most heavenly beaches imaginable called Playa Palancar. Here, this spectacular secluded beach meets the warm Caribbean water providing one of the most incredible places to snorkel. You’ll snorkel and swim in the clear water next to a variety of tropical fish, sea turtles, and marine life living here among the coral reef.

When we get to Playa Palancar, it’ll be your choice to you to eat lunch on board or on the beach under a “palapa” shade area with your feet in the sand! Whatever setting you choose, your view will be nothing short of amazing. This is the moment you’ll want to just let go and breathe in a slice of paradise as your crew serves you. You’ll have fresh made guacamole, the ceviche of your choice —either fish or shrimp— and/or cheeseburgers. And of course, the open bar is ready and waiting to quench your thirst! Grab a cold beer, a margarita, or a non-alcoholic refreshment of your choice to enjoy with your lunch.

After this stop, we can make can make another stop if you wish at another nearby local reef, all part of the amazing Mesoamerican Barrier Reef or Grand Mayan Reef System. Again you’ll get the opportunity to swim and snorkel in crystal clear water with sea turtles, stingrays, and all the marine life enjoying life at the reef.

Finally, we will make a leisurely cruise back to the marina. On this journey back, you’ll get to see an incredible sunset over the jungle side of the Riviera Maya coast. It’s, to us, just another gorgeous plus of life in this biodiverse part of Mexico.

This is a great off-the-beaten path tour and truly one of the best ways to experience the Riviera Maya, Mexico!
