Chen Rio is the talk of the town now. As the name would indicate "Chen Rio" got its original name because of a river that used to flow through it. The roadway before hurricane Wilma cut off the flow between the sea and the mangrove swamps. Well, thanks to Hurricane Wilma The river is back! Only this time instead of building a road over the river and filling it; They put a large drainage system under the road to let the natural course of the rive flow unimpeded.
The lush vegetation between the beach and the cove makes it ideal if you would like to experience flora and fauna mixed in with your beach. Chen Rio is one of the best Cozumel Beaches on the "other side" of the island.
