Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: David Hammer is an attorney in Weaverville, a small town in the foothills of the Trinity Alps in Northern California. He was in private practice for 23 years and County Counsel for Trinity County for 6 years before he retired in 2004. For 4 years David devoted most of his time to community service projects. In 2008 he again started practicing law part-time as the attorney for Trinity County Child Protective Services. David enjoys SCUBA diving, sailing, salsa dancing, hiking, skiing, and public service projects. He has been a member of Rotary International for 37 years.

Why the Owner Chose Cozumel Island:
For several years, I wanted to develop rental units for tourists, both to generate income and for a winter vacation home. As an attorney, I had helped a client buy a duplex in San Carlos, Mexico. In December ‘96, my youngest son and I drove the tourist corridor between Cancun and Tulum, continuing south to Chetamal and inspecting property in every town and fishing village in between. On New Years Day we took the ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel. I liked what I saw. Beautiful beaches, crystal clear water, friendly people, and a healthy economy. It has the same small town atmosphere of my home town in California where you can walk the streets at night in safety. Cozumel is a world premier SCUBA diving location and has unique Mayan ruins. There are excellent restaurants, large supermarkets, friendly people, a one of the best Carnival celebrations in the world.
