Paradise awaits you in this 2,780 sq. ft. wonderful and luxurious two stories penthouse with mesmerizing Caribbean sights. This is the place to really relax and forget about it all. “It is huge, and look at the incredible view!” are the two main comments we immediately get from our guests.
The photos speak for themselves, by far the largest condo in the beautiful and exclusive Cantamar building (more than twice the size of the other ones), a two stories penthouse with the greatest view in the building & island; this relaxing seaside property will embezzle you from the first moment. It has a big living and dinning room as well as a large kitchen, upstairs you will find a huge main room with a large balcony with an awesome view of the Caribbean sea and private bathroom. Another room next to it also with ocean view and another room with jungle view, both these rooms sharing a 2 shower full bathroom.
Towels are provided in the condo (3 for the beach). We are located in the second floor, no elevator, but there will be someone to carry your luggage when you arrive.
Calling to the States is free and we have wireless internet and dish cable TV . Our in island agent is available to answer every question about the island.
If you are a large family or a group that wants to have independency inside the condo this property is ideal for you, Cantamar is an exclusive building with just eight condos located in the quiet North side of the island, a mere 15 minute walk from the town of San Miguel, unlike the south side properties that are far away from town -meaning expensive taxi trips- and crowded by cruise ship tourists and their taxis. Also south side condos are mainly located at public beaches, so forget about getting the privacy you take for granted at Cantamar.
The presidential house is located 800 feet from us, and there are many good reasons for it: we have the best sea colors, sights, and snorkeling right out of the condo. Our man made beach has plenty of beach beds as well as two palapas and a wood pergola, our pool has an incredible aerial effect, and there is plenty of beach beds next to it. There is a ladder to access the sea and our Oceanside is known for having the clearest shoreline water in Cozumel, so relax & enjoy!
You want to relax, have a romantic getaway and be at ease with your children? This is the place to do it! There is a Jack Nicklaus less than two miles away, and you can go south to a public beach for wave runners, parasailing, and more. You are an Ironman fan? There is a cycling & jogging course just outside our condo! And swimming training in the sea is incredible.
We have central air both in the lower and upper levels, and also ceiling fans in case you want to avoid the cold air conditioning breeze before an early dive.
Scuba diving & snorkeling in Cozumel is breathtaking, having been a dive master myself I constantly got appraisals from divers all over the world about it, the deep, night, current, reef diving are unparalleled, including the world renowned Cenote dive, found only in the Yucatan peninsula. The condo is equipped with a diving gear rising tank & shower, and you can be picked up for a diving excursion on our private pier.
You also have a large selection of restaurants with delicious local and international food, you may go into town to discover them or just relax in your condo. There is also a very large shopping selection in town, both local & international.
However if you are looking for a party condo for Spring Break, please do not bother to call. We are a quiet, relaxing location and wish to stay so to the benefit of our guests.

Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: We are a Mexican family that has enjoyed Cozumel since the 1940´s and we consider the island our second home, we are originally from Mexico City and we are related both to the cultural sector in Mexico as public cultural trust fund manager, and to the water treatment sector designing plants & supplying equipment for it. We try to spend as much time as possible in Cozumel and see to it that our condo feels like a home and not like a cold, unpersonal hotel room.
Why the Owner Chose Cozumel Island: We really think we managed to find an exceptional place in an exceptional island and we feel great knowing our guest enjoy themselves in it. We were the first to purchase so we had the chance to choose the best condo available, both the large spaces & incredible views have made a big diference for us. Cozumel is the place to fall in love with.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: This is an easy one: our condo is by far the largest in a great building, the rest of the condos are less than half our size; you have the living & dinning & kitchen areas on the first floor and the bedrooms in the upper floor, so if you want to have a nice dinner (in a superb glass, 10 chair dinning table) with the kids sleeping upstairs, not in the next room, be welcomed to do so. Also our great balconies in both floors will let you admire the unique sunsets or have a Caribbean view outdoor meal. Our large living room will allow you to sit and relax with your friends. The beach and pool are private (not many of these in Mexico since beaches are considered federal property), and we have direct access to the sea and our private pier to be picked up by boats.
