I would say that this was a "good" day not over the top but good. The guides were nice and very helpful but it was slow the day we were there so we felt like we were just sitting waiting to leave after our snorkel but if your looking for a day to snorkel & kayak this is just that... More

Purchased access and open bar. Drinks plentiful. Some padded loungers and some not. Umbrellas. Beach is rocky but there is one access location with a minimum of rocks. Little vendor huts, massages and a restaurant with bar. Very pleasant afternoon.

In the past, we've had a shady experience with Carnival's excursions. This one was a lot less expensive than what they normally offer. You have a four hour excursion that includes shopping in a flea market type environment for trinkets and a 1.5 stay at the beach. Playa Uvas is the beach that is included in this excursion. Beautiful water... More

Our cruise ship arrived for an overnight at 2 p.m., and upon asking for a beach with a bar and wifi, we got hooked into buying sight unseen a taxi ride and paying resort fees to Uvas Resort. The wifi was marginal. The beach was rocky. But just as I was enjoying being in the water, we got notice the... More

We accidentally came here. We came off a cruise ship and were going to go to Chankanaab - not with the ship, just on our own as we have been to Cozumel before and wanted to take our daughter snorkeling. Our taxi driver advised us of three different places that we could try instead of Chankanaab. He explained that it's... More

This is a beach with food, drink, kayaking, snorkeling. If you buy lunch there you get to use the facility at no extra charge, otherwise you pay $15 each and get an included drink. They put sand bags down in one spot so you can get over the rocks by shore for activities. They have kayaks. Snorkel gear includes and... More

I visited Playa Uvas as part of a Royal Caribbean cruise excursion. We had a great time kayaking and snorkeling. Our guide, Jaime, was great. He was friendly and knowledgeable. The clear kayaks were fun but not particularly comfortable as the back supports were broken. However, seeing the fish swim beneath us was so cool! The snorkeling was good but... More

Enjoyed glass bottom kayaking and later snorkeling on the beach at this lovely local resort. Tasty local cuisine and of course cervesas. Cocktails available. Friendly, helpful staff. Great location on coast with coral close to shore. Shops on location. 15 minutes from pier. Not able to review accommodations as we are here with the Eurodam-Holland America.
