Fodor's Review

South of the resorts, down a rutted and potholed road and way off the beaten path lies the serene Playa Palancar. The on-site dive shop can outfit you for trips to the famous Palancar Reef just offshore. There's also a water-sports center, a bar-café, and a long beach with hammocks hanging under coconut palms. Amenities: food and drink; showers; restrooms; parking (free); water sports. Best For: snorkeling; swimming.
