Playa Chen Rio, Cozumel

(3.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Visit the sandy shores of Playa Chen Rio and splash about in crystal clear water protected from the sea's currents by giant rocks. The beach has a reputation as a great snorkeling location thanks to its high level of underwater visibility, making it popular with both tourists and locals. Take ingredients for an al fresco meal with you, or head to the local snack bar, which offers food and drinks. Bring plenty of sunscreen as natural shade at the beach is minimal. Our Cozumel trip generator makes visiting Playa Chen Rio and other Cozumel attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • With calm sea is a paradise! On one side of the tip has good shallow pools ideal for children and across a Bay with calm waters for swimming. Has two restaurants with shadow space to rest, networks, room for massage, boat trips, in addition to tables with parasols. Recommend for those who drive across the island.

  • As we stopped for we refresh and we achieve the objective, the water is very rich, cold and crystal clear. The flat part is you can take your kids and it is not dangerous since the sea is very strong.
