What's Located Around Playa Azul

The sparkling beaches on Cozumel are undoubtedly the most enticing outdoor sights in the region.

If all you can think about is the beach, Playa Azul is set in the perfect location for you. This lodging is located along the shore, so tourists can spend all of their time soaking up the sun if that will make them happy. No matter the time of year, there are crowds of people who come to this popular part of Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean, making for a lively beach atmosphere; however, this means it can get packed with people during the high season.

Nearby Beaches

Of course, since Playa Azul was built directly on Santa Pilar, laying out in the sun is one of the main attractions here. Located on the northern strip of San Miguel (North of the Cozumel International Airport), Santa Pilar is a long stretch of beach that features calm, shallow waters, perfect for swimming. The area is somewhat popular with tourists, particularly as you get closer to the hotels.

Isla de Pasion is the closest to the resort. This sunny spot is a convenient taxi cab ride away. A private island off Cozumel, the beach here is set up as a resort play area, with everything from play areas for kids, watersports for adults, and hammocks swinging in the trees for everyone to relax in.

You may also like nearby Sunset Beach where there will be plenty to keep you busy. Set on the beautiful west coast of Cozumel, Sunset Beach is indeed a wonderful place to cozy up in the sand and watch the sunset. In the hours leading up to the sunset, however, visitors can spend their day swimming, sailing, and sunning.
