This was my 8th trip to Cozumel and my 8th trip to Playa Palancar. We like it because it is quiet, uncrowded and caters mostly to a crowd wanting to relax. There are not many water toys to speak of. I may have seen 1 or 2 jet skis but they stayed way out and away from the shore. There is no entrance fee. There are beach chairs and plenty of chairs and hammocks in the shade. The restaurant is very good and reasonably priced with soft drinks or alcoholic drinks. They rent snorkeling equipment. They only thing that was different this year was the house that sits just to the north of it is now being used by Carnival Cruises for an excursion. They allow something like 25 people to use the house and they have a private chef, beach chairs, etc. There were signs this year with private property posted and the excursion people stayed over there. They really did not make much of an impact. At the most I may have seen 75 people on the beach. They want to take your picture when you enter but you are under no obligation to purchase but we always do. This is a nice place to spend a relaxing afternoon.
