Day-pass resort in Cozumel, Mexico a great deal for cruise passengers

Updated: 2/13/2014

When sailing into Cozumel, Mexico and looking for fun in the sun, drinks, food, a beach, and all the good stuff, consider a day-pass at the El Cid resort.

The location is right off the cruise pier and you can’t miss the towering hotel with the El Cid emblem on the side of it. If you want a day pass it’s $20 per person and all-inclusive pass is $45 per person.

Here’s the break down:

$20 pass includes use of all the facilities, unlimited wireless internet, pool, beach, and facilities. You pay $20 up front but you get $12 credited back to you for a food/bar credit.

$45 all-inclusive pass includes unlimited food, drink, use of facilities, and snorkel rental.

I did the $20 package but the drinks are so reasonable you can’t go wrong either way.

My favorite part of this resort is that it’s so close to the cruise terminal and you don’t have to worry about making the ship on-time, getting a taxi, or being asked to buy wares on the beach by the locals.

  1. Why didn’t you shoot any actual video of the El Cid? I want to know what the facilities look like. Their website is not very helpful either. Talking heads don’t help me so much, because I’ve just read the same information in your newsletter email.
