I will be in Cozumel Feb. 4 with my daughters ages 17, 11. Originally we planned to hop a cab to Chankanaab where we could snorkle, enjoy the beach and swim with dolphins, then stop in at Senor Frogs before heading back to our ship. NOW I'm not sure what to do. The girls can do without the dolphin swim but we'd still like to snorkle and enjoy a full-service beach. I thought about paradise beach club but it just looks too much like the Florida beach atmosphere, you know. Any suggestions? What is teh jeep excursion like? Any other place like Senor Frogs that is open? Thanks!

Paradise Beach is an excellent choice and I wouldn't discount it at all, but if you want to get away from the cruise crowd, you could also visit Playa Palancar afew miles past Paradise Beach. Both beaches are back to normal and offer full services.

The Shrimp Bucket is open and ready for business. It is located in the same mall as Carlos and Charlies and Senior Frogs, it just didn't have the same exposure. It is owned by the same company as the other two.

Have a great visit to Cozumel!

We just got back from San Francisco Bch.
Its right next door to Paradise Bch. Although it received damage to its giant Palapa covered restaraunt, I liked it better because of the pool and food/beer. Paradise bch was quite a bit more crowded too.I liked the fact that San Fran has a good size pool with swim up bar. Plus the food was great. Paradise Beach seemed to have a better beach because of the water toys at though. What the heck, use both. They just require you to buy some food or beer to stay at the beach free of charge.
We loved it, and would do it again, and the taxi ride was only 13.00 us dollars each way.

Umm, I must be missing something. I don't believe that Playa San Francisco has a pool...but Playa Mia does. Is this what you are speaking of?

No, it had a pool,and Im sure it was playa San Francisco.(So said the sign)
Its right next door to Paradise Beach(which also had a sign). They are side by side seperated only by a rope.

Actually, there is a fresh water pool at San Francisco Beach. I do not know how long it has been there though - perhaps it is a relatively new addition.

Cajun Girl, since you will not be traveling until February - maybe Senor Frogs and Carlos 'n Charlies will be back in business by then. Ian may be able to keep us posted on that.

Ooops sorry for the misinformation. Playa San Francisco used to be my beach club of choice, but with all of the new options, I have moved on. The pool was not there the last time I spent the day there.

Hi just wondering about the san francisco beach and the paradise beach, is it a resort type or just a public beach? and we can just walk in and use it and buy some food?

Carmen,
Paradise Beach and San Francisco Beach are both public beach clubs. There is no entrance fee for either but water toys, food, drinks, etc. are all available for a fee. You can get the specifics about each of these clubs along with photos (pre-hurricane) via this link to a special report written by Tom Ogg for Port Reviews:
