You can also arrange transportation with the park ahead of time to make the process even easier.
After arriving at the park, safe and convenient lockers can be rented to keep all your valuables secure while enjoying everything the park has to offer.
Hit the Beach
It’s no secret the beaches of Cozumel are a highlight of the island. Gorgeous blue water and brilliant white sand draw in those coming from all over the world to enjoy this little slice of paradise. Most who walk into Playa Mia for the first time are immediately drawn to the beach and the 500-ft long floating obstacle park anchored off shore.
Along the shore are a number of water activities included in the price of admission such as:
- water bicycles
- paddle boats
- tubes and mats for floating
- beach volleyball

If relaxing is at the top of your to-do list in Cozumel, then settle into one of the many lounge chairs lining the beach and watching the waves roll in with great book and a cool drink from one of the several beachside bars serving up all your favorites. There’s plenty of space to spread out and relax and the calm waters are perfect for jumping in and cooling off.

After exploring the beachfront, work your way towards one of the two pools available for guests.
Along with two pools, Playa Mia features a special splash area for kids called Buccaneer’s Bay complete with a pirate ship, water cannons and plenty of room to splash around!
Oasis Hydro Massage Tub
While the kiddos are splashing, parents should take full advantage of the Oasis Hydro Massage Tub and the thousands of relaxing bubbles.

Protecting the Coral Reef
As part of an initiative to help protect local wildlife and the surrounding Mesoamerican reef barrier, Playa Mia Grand Beach Park is a sunscreen-free beach. Some sunscreen chemicals have been found to promote the spread of the White Syndrome Epidemic. Preventing the spread of the white band reef disease, which is rapidly killing healthy coral reefs all over the Caribbean, is a top priority as we need healthy and stress-free coral if we want it to prevail against the syndrome. Playa Mia encourages guests to protect themselves with UV resistant clothing and hats to block the sun. Working together, you can ensure Cozumel remains beautiful for those who haven’t visited yet!
With multiple package options, it’s easy to customize your Playa Mia experience based on your needs. Cruising with kids?
