This beautiful condo is located three miles north of the hotel zone and away from the maddening crowd. It is only twenty five minutes from the airport and near the fisherman's village of Puerto Juarez. This condo has a beautiful beach with views of the hotel zone and the island of Isla Mujeres. The ferry to the island is seven blocks away. Tours can be booked at the resort next door. Convenience stores are within walking distance. Easy walking to the Mayans ruins named El Meco. Minibuses pass in front of the complex every ten minutes and go downtown where the mercados and large grocery stores are located.

About Michael L. Garcia
My wife and I have been in the real estate business in Denver, CO for close to forty years. We took a leap of faith and decided to try international real estate. We love this area of Cancun and go down with our son three times a year for detailed upkeep on the place. The water in this area is calm enough for children.
Michael L. Garcia purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Michael L. Garcia chose Cancún
We looked everywhere from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen to Cancun for a place to buy. This condo was a good buy for our family and was still the real Mexico. It is not overly Americanized with Pizza Hut, Outback Steakhouse, McDonald's, etc. The area is a small fishing village just three miles north of downtown Cancun. The palapa style restaurants in the area serve the catch of the day.

Ok for the price
Frankie was awesome to work with. Clean, convenient, and great for the money. Very secure. WiFi advertised but could not get on a network even with the password. Had to stay one night somewhere else to get some work done. Third floor with no A/C was uncomfortable but not a deal-breaker. Security guard must have been chain-smoking under our window all night and it smelled like there was a fire burning in the building. Those two things, plus the heat made it difficult to sleep.
Thank you for your booking. I'm not sure what happen with the a/c. Frankie usually lets us know right away if it is not working. I've heard nothing from him so far. Sometimes tenants will not close all the windows and doors including the bathroom doors. They need to be closed. The city will sometimes do a controlled burn in the jungle which is across the road. Maybe that was going on. The wifi is down by the pool and will go down occasionally but not often.
Loved the location! Super close to Puerto Juarez to get to the Isla, great local restaurants/Food vendors. Loved being away from the hotel zone, got the real feel of Mexico! Can't wait to go back!
We spent 28 days here in July 2017. It was our first time doing a vacation rental and based on this experience we will definitely do it again. The beach was beautiful. Seaweed does come and go, but our boys (4 and 6 yr old) spent hours building sand castles and splashing in the ocean. The pool was very well used as well. The condo is close to downtown. Buses drive by regularly (9 pesos per person) or you can take a short taxi ride (we were able to get a cab for 50 - 80 pesos each time). The condo is also within walking distance of El Meco (ruins), the ferry to Isla Mujeres (Beautiful island, a must see), several restaurants, Oxxo and the water park.
The BBQ on the beach did not work and you could only get WiFi at the pool or in the laundry room (though it did work on bed nearest the jungle - that was a late discovery). We would have also liked to have a deck or balcony. It would have been nice to be outside when the boys went to bed. Those were the only negatives that I could think of.
The communication was great. Michael responded right away to emails. There was a problem with the AC early in our trip, but Michael and Frankie were quick to repair it.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone. It was a great location, super quiet (almost no one on the beach but us), access to almost everything, friendly neighbors, great communication, great price.
Yes! Best price on the beach, quiet and nice views. It was roomy for 3 of us!!!!
We are coming back again!
Best deal in Cancun!
My family of four stayed 9 days at this condo. We were within walking distance to the ferry that takes you to Isla Mujeres. The kitchen was well stocked to cook on the days we didn't feel like going out to eat. The condo was very spacious. We enjoyed having the beach so close to us. We would leave the windows open to hear the sound of the ocean every evening. I would definitely reccomend.
Great Time in Cancun
Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids) had a wonderful time in Cancun. The Hopelchen condo worked great for us. The private beach and private pool were WELL used by our family. There is a nice public beach and several local restaurants within walking distance. The property manager and owner were quick to respond to questions we had about the condo and the area. The Puerto Juarez Ferry to Isla Mujeres is also within walking distance.
I had a rental car and it was very convenient, however I would recommend buses, shuttles, and taxies instead.
We had a great, relaxing stay and saw plenty of sites.
I thank you for your nice review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and your vacation.
The condo is located on the mainland directly across from the island Isla Mujeres. The ferry to the island is four blocks away. The street to the hotel zone is three miles south from the condo. Downtown Cancun is three miles from the condo.
