There are some beach clubs that are very built up and fancy, but Corona was fabulous for the snorkeling, and the man who owns the beach club and everyone who works there are wonderful!

We loved snorkeling here! It is more low key than some of the other beach clubs. The food was just so-so but I'd come back for the snorkeling!

I say it's more like a 10 minute drive, depending on traffic by the port. It cost us $12 for me, my husband and 3 yo son by taxi.

We will be in Cozumel in 2 months and wanted to know if the Corona Beach Club had lockers. Also, some reviews have stated there was a cover charge and others have said no cover. We would stay all day for lunch, drinks and snorkeling. Thanks everyone for the great reviews of this place. Look forward to our cruise.

Corona Playa beach club does not have lockers and there is no cover charge. Great snorkeling right from shore!
