Stopping in Cozumel’s cruise port during your time at sea? If you are looking for a short day trip, the Tequila Beach Club Cozumel might be what you are looking for. A cab ride through the area takes you to this beach side area.
Carnival Cruise Lines gifted me the cruise to get to this port of call, but this excursion was paid for by me.

This was my first cruise and first cruise port, so it was pretty exciting to finally be there. I really had no idea what to expect from this experience, but it was a nice time. So let’s find out a little more.
About The Cozumel Cruise Port
The Cozumel cruise port is a beautiful stop. It is so much fun wandering through the shops to get to the taxi area for your excursions. Just a short walk from your ship, it is a beautiful and colorful part of your port of call.
What Is The Tequila Beach Club Cozumel?
Welcome to our Beach Club located in Cozumel Island, the perfect place to spend an amazing day at the beach with friends or family, food and drinks! We manage all inclusive packs, open bar packs and also a basic one. There’s also a pool you can enjoy anytime and floating games on the sea!~Description from TripAdvisor
How Can I Get To Tequila Beach Club Cozumel?
The beach club can be accessed by taxi. Since there was a group of us, we paid around $25 in USD(cash only) for a nice air conditioned van to get us to our destination. Just head to the taxi area to be shuttled off to your adventure.
How Much Does It Cost To Get In?
For $20(USD), you gain admittance to the Tequila Beach Club Cozumel. You get a 4-hour window to enjoy the area and get a welcome shot of tequila if you are of age. Any food or drinks you purchase are extra. They have other packages available that are all-inclusive, which may be better suited for families.
Does The Beach Club Accept U.S. Dollars?
Yes, the beach club accepts USD. I usually take a variety of bills so that I have exact change. Some places may give your change in local currency. I don’t know about here, since I had exact change.
I did not notice anywhere if they accept credit cards, so I am not able to comment on that form of payment.
Do I Need To Speak Spanish Here?
As always, it is always good to be able to speak the local language. Two of the ladies in our group were fluent, so it was very comforting to know that they could help out. Most of the staff spoke English, so it wasn’t a problem at all.
Things To Enjoy At Tequila Beach Club Cozumel
There are some great food and drink options available in the bar area. There are nice covered areas for you to sit while you enjoy your food. We did not take the time to eat anything because we were only there for a short while.
And, of course, I couldn’t go to a place with tequila in the name and not try a cocktail. Loved the souvenir glass that came with it.
The drink cost $15 USD, and was quite tasty, too. Can’t enjoy a beach without a good beverage.
Of course, you can’t visit a beach club without taking the time to lay on a beach chair and enjoy the view. The chairs fill up pretty quickly and there are some umbrellas scattered around, but they are snatched up quick.
There are also some water toys for the kids, and well the adults too, to enjoy while you are on the beach.
The One Unexpected Thing At The Beach Club
One of the most unique things about the beach club is the availability to get a fish pedicure. Yes, a fish pedicure! What is that? Patrons dip their feet in a tub of water filled with small fish called Garra rufa. Garra rufa are sometimes referred to as “doctor fish” because they eat away dead skin found on peoples’ feet, leaving newer skin exposed.
These lovely ladies took advantage of this unique experience.
Not too many people could say they did that on vacation. Nothing like relaxing, having a beverage, and enjoying an unusual beauty treatment.
Final Thoughts About The Tequila Beach Club Cozumel
Since I had never been to Cozumel before, everything was new to me. I was lucky, though, to share this experience with the new friends I met on the cruise. Having some ladies who spoke the language fluently and didn’t mine me tagging along was great for this side trip.
Make sure you check out the blogs of my travel friends, too.
And while it was a nice place to stop, if I would end up back in Cozumel, I probably wouldn’t go back here. In order to get the true, all-inclusive experience, you need to pay more. The beach is smaller and rocky, despite being so pretty. It may have been more worth it if we were there for a longer time(not just a cruise port of call). And while the staff was nice, it just wasn’t the place for me.
