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.

  • It recommended to know a little more Cozumel in a day, is rent an auto and explore the island. In this regard I recommend that they hire it via the web a few days before, is will save half of what you charge them personally hired. A cheap auto has a fee of $500 while web via $350. In our experience, we made our stop here to eat and enjoy the beach. Excellent place!

  • Quiet place, nice, with two bars (we took the left side, facing the beach). A delicious natural pool on the beach with warm water and a clean strip of sand-rare as it is site of the open sea and a lot of wave. Very good for children. The sea was beautiful, with blue tourmaline color areas and Sun before, we went to see the beaches listed by our cruise ship (Ocean beaches and Playa Mia): two "take suckers", dark water and CROWDED locations! Full of buses and many tourists, "per kilo". In addition to having to pay 20 to 35 dollars per person to enter these sites. Chen Rio is clean, beautiful, funny and more reserved although open. We rented a car and we were very happy to go there. In Cozumel, the best beaches are after the PUNTA SUR PARK, which also has natural pools.

  • Playa Chen Río stands on the opposite side of the island to the ferry, is a very beautiful beach of calm and crystalline waters. A formation of rocks make the landscape even more beautiful and perfect for good pictures.
