Playa Chen Rio, Cozumel

(3.7/5 based on 260+ 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.
