Why Visit Cozumel?

Cozumel is situated next to the world's second largest coral reef system, the Belizean Reef and offers a spectacular collection of colorful coral, underwater canyons and caves, aquatic life and slumbering hulls of past Spanish galleons to explore. A serene and intimate Caribbean island, Cozumel is located 12 miles off the Yucatán Peninsula's Riviera Maya and is surrounded by year-round temperate, crystal-clear water of vivid turquoise and indigo blue. The leeward side of the island harbours an incredible reef system in its calm waters flanked with white sand beaches; the windward Caribbean coastline's strong surf washes against limestone outcrops forming sheltered coves and bays. Cozumel remains an island of primarily untouched jungle, palm groves, lagoons and native wetlands creating a sanctuary for aviary and tropical wildlife.

About Arnie Purisch

Our family lives in Southern California and enjoy traveling and a very active lifestyle. We learned to scuba dive many years ago and knew that this was an activity that promised travel to exotic places. Our first trip to Cozumel had us hooked. The spectacular reefs, clear and warm water, and the varied underwater life beckoned us back on several more trips.

One day, while relaxing in a hammock at the neighboringl hotel, Plaza las Glorias (now the Cozumel Palace), we decided to wander next door to the under construction El Cantil Condominiums, which had for sale signs on the property. We hadn't really thought about buying another place but the building with its unrivaled location on the island, the fact that it was obviously a top tier property, and the certainty that Cozumel was going to be a regular destination in the future put the purchase notion on the table. On our next couple of visits to the island, we were shown a variety of properties up and down the island, from other condos to houses. Many were purchase worthy but none rivaled El Cantil in amenities and location. By that time the North Tower was under construction, it was clear that we weren't the only one's who had arrived at a similar decision. Almost sold out.

What a wonderful escape!. We spend only 4-5 weeks down here a year and each time we return, the slower pace, the welcoming ambiance, and the drop dead gorgeous view from our terrace immediately put us in vacation mode. As foodies, we have been pleasantly surprised by the number and quality of restaurants. Food for the body and spirit.

There's not been a time that we haven't resolved to spend more time down here. In the meantime, we will have to make due in Southern California. Living in two vacation destinations. Life is good..

Arnie Purisch purchased this condo in 2008

Why Arnie Purisch chose Colonia Andres

Location, Location, Location. Upscale. Not just a vacation rental but truly a second home.

What makes this condo unique

Right on the Caribbean. Every time I look out at the beautiful sea, close enough to touch, I am mesmerized. The jacuzzi hot tub on the terrace, with a cold drink in hand is one heck of a way to enjoy the spectacular sunsets. It never gets old.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have visited Cozumel 3 years in a row now and are about ready to start planning for year #4. We always stay in the same apartment/condo at El Cantil. It's our favorite vacation spot! Huge 4 bedrooms so we've been able to invite different friends and family every time. So open and beautifully decorated. Ocean views in the two master bedrooms. A huge patio with your own jacuzzi that over looks El Cantil's private beaches and the infinity pool that leads into the ocean. There's a dock or steps to a little cave so you can walk right out for snorkeling. Everything you could need is right within walking distance, restaurants and souvenir shopping are everywhere! We always rent a keep for a couple of days to explore the island. I highly recommend the 4wheeler off roading & horse back riding. Our favorite restaurant is Rastas on the other side of the island, their mai tais and coconut shrimp are to die for! I cannot recommend this place enough, it really feels like our second home, lol, our 4 year old asked if we could stay for 8 months this time and I don't blame him at all.

THIS CONDO HAS IT ALL!!!! We had an amazing time while staying here. Everything from the front door men to the maid service to the cook at the house, was absolutely perfect! What each of us loved about the condo: My husband loved that we could easily access the pool and snorkeling right out the back door. My daughter loved how easy it was to also get to said pool and to go across the street for "street food." My son loved being able to run to the town every morning on his morning run and I loved the convienence to the town and ferry. We had our laudry service done which allowed for packing less clothes and had dinner prepared one night after a long day of diving. Everything truly was perfect! We felt safe and well cared for. Further, it was easy to get a car for the day right at the condon through the front door guys. Finally, the owner was very responsive and quick to reply to all our needs/ questions! Kudos to all! Note to others: we loved the island on Sunday as that is the only day that no cruises were in port. We would come back in a heart beat! Truly an awesome experience all around.

Can’t wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Can’t wait to go back and I would definitely stay here again. This is our second time in this condo complex. Staff is excellent and the condos are very well appointed. Grounds are very clean. Jacuzzi got a little cloudy after a big group was in for awhile. Otherwise pool is very clean. Deck sunsets are the best. Will be back. Host is excellent in communication.

Beautiful Property & Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is spacious, well equipped & tastefully decorated. It’s location is ideal - right on the water & easy walk to bars & restaurants. There’s a grocery store right across the street which we visited often. The Carnaval parade was right out front so it was easy to participate in all of the festivities. We enjoyed the pool area every day. We had 9 adults in our group & the 4 bedrooms with bathrooms was perfect. Arnie was great to work with & very responsive. The representative from the management company was very responsive as well. We discovered a leak under the kitchen sink & she had someone there to repair it within the hour. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cozumel & are already talking about a return trip.

Wonderful property! Highly recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at this El Cantil condo during a post-Christmas holiday getaway and we could not have been more pleased with the property. The condo itself was well-appointed, clean and comfortable for our family of 7, with a spectacular ocean view. We are divers and our dive company picked us up each time right at the El Cantil dock. The pool was beautiful and a perfect daily source of entertainment for our 1 year old. The property manager was extremely helpful and responsive. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Relaxed in Cozumel

  • 5 of 5

When you walk in, the sign says "Relax" and you do because the view of the ocean is fabulous, the condo is beautifully decorated and spotless, and you can walk to restaurants and food stores. There is no need for a rental car, but there is parking if you choose to rent a car. Also diveboats came right to the dock.

I appreciated all the extra utensils in the kitchen, especially the upscale blender that made great frozen drinks. Cooking was easy. Also I appreciated the internet speed. I had some work to do, and had no trouble with the internet. There were also staff around that were very helpful when we needed anything, inlcuding helping me rent a car. Great vacation.

One of the reasons we bought our condo at El Cantil was the location; it's great to walk almost to everywhere. And the property has its own pier for on-site pickup from one of the dozens of dive operators.The diving on Cozumel is world class. Once you dive here you will see why.

The relaxation of sitting in our Hot Tub with a drink and just watching the Caribbean off our terrace is priceless. The sunsets are magnificent!

The locals are very friendly and welcoming, and the amenities on the island are amazing. Entertainment and recreational activities are as expected in a such a popular destination. In addition to all manner of water sports and a variety of land based excursions (e.g., zip lining, ATV tours in the jungle, Mayan ruins) there are clubs with live music, movie theaters, golf (watch out for crocodiles at the water holes!), shopping, bars and restaurants. Restaurants abound with local and international fare, ranging from from casual to elegant.

There always seems to be something going on in San Miguel, the main town on the island, from yearly events like the Carnival and Iron Man triathlon to frequent musical or other cultural events in the two main town squares, one of which is across the street from the condo.

Cozumel is only a short ferry ride to the mainland town of Playa del Carmen. This section of the Yucatan is known as the Riviera Maya and is famous for being home to some of the world's nicest beaches up and down its coastline. Snorkel with the whale sharks off of Isla Mujera, enjoy water based theme parks such as Xcaret and Xei-Ha, tour the awe inspiring Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza and Tulum, and snorkel or dive the cenotes, the underground river and cavern system unique to the Yucatan peninsula. Cancun with all its attractions is about an hour north of the ferry in Playa del Carmen.

We hope you will enjoy our second home as much as we do and come stay with us soon.
