About the Property

Private Guest House

Sandy beaches, stunning sunsets, and beautiful blue waters. All are on vibrant display at our tropical guest house at Los Alcatraces on Cozumel, Mexico’s largest Caribbean island.

Perfect for a romantic getaway, our accommodations give you the privacy and safety of your own place, plus the convenience of having knowledgeable hosts on-site.

Structured like a small boutique Hotel, our en-suite bedrooms have their own private entrance. Guests share the pool, garden, and covered patio.


The bedroom features a queen-sized bed with butter soft, 1000-thread count Egyptian cotton linens you can sink into after a long day. There is plenty of closet space for you to store your belongings as well as a locked safe for your more precious items. For an extra jolt in the morning, brew a fresh cup of organic coffee from Chiapas in the comfort of your own room.

The en-suite bathroom is stocked with toiletries and towels so you don’t need to worry about taking up space in your suitcase!


Our relaxing garden is the perfect backdrop to start your day, watching hummingbirds whilst you sip your morning coffee.

Since the average daily temperature in Cozumel is 75°F (24°C) or higher year-round, you’ll want to take a dip in our refreshing pool to cool down. We also have lounge chairs for you to work on your tan, too.

If you would rather explore the Technicolor coral reefs in the Caribbean, we also have a rinse tank and clothesline to wash and dry your scuba gear after a busy day of diving.


Our guest house is located within walking distance of the town center. We’re just far enough away from all of the tourists to give you a taste of the real Cozumel. You can mingle with the locals at nearby markets and enjoy authentic cuisine.

Cozumel is a scuba diver’s paradise! The island offers an array of beaches (many of the “iron-shore” variety), each teeming with intricate coral reefs and endless sightings of beautiful marine life.

If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience on the beach, head over to a Beach Club. For a small fee, you can rent a lounge chair and unwind under the shade of a thatched roof.

Whether you’re coming to get away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, or to explore the beauty Cozumel has to offer, we are here to assist you every step of the way. Book your tropical holiday today!

Los Alcatraces Cozumel Includes: Coffee Maker, Organic Coffee from Chiapas, Electricity, Maid Service, Filtered Water, Wifi Internet, Cable TV, Pool, Refrigerator, Air Conditioning, Room Safe, 1000 Thread Count Sheets, Shampoo, Soap, and a Dive Gear Wash Tank.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: WHO ARE WE Back in 1992, I came to this tranquil place in Mexico because I sorely needed a dive vacation. It was a time in my life to listen to that little voice in my head and re-group, breathe and lead a saner life. Then in 2009 I met my beautiful wife Silvia on the island and the permanent transformation started. On a vacation trip to Cozumel in 2011 we immediately fell in love with a casa called Los Alcatraces! What’s not to love about an authentic Mexican casa with a tropical garden, a cooling pool, and an outdoor area in the shade? Our favorite activity living here is diving. Visibility is almost always spectacular, ranging from 80-100 feet on average thanks to the calmer waters. This makes for some great scuba diving and snorkeling all year long. We love the fact that Cozumel is extremely laid back without an attitude and is safe! Buying our first guest house, we furiously went about renovations inside and out to create an oasis guests could enjoy. We really focused on what we wanted as renters. Jump forward 5 years, and we love sharing our casa with others who also have a dream of an authentic Mexican experience. CONFIDENCE We work in both the background and with the guests looking for an island escape. Silvia has extensive knowledge of the travel and resort industry from her time spent with Vista Del Mar Boutique Hotel, Cozumel Bar Hop tours, Odyssey Tours, and Royal Holiday Club. My background as former owner of a restaurant helps me offer outstanding customer service to ensure your vacation dreams are reached. That little voice has never left us and we continue to listen to our clients in order to improve and offer what we consider to be THE BEST VACATION EXPERIENCE on Cozumel. GOAL Our goal is to create a luxurious tropical ambiance where vacation memories are created on beautiful Cozumel Mexico. We are here to assist you in making that possible whether celebrating a wedding, honeymoon, or a much needed vacation!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
WHAT OUR GUESTS THINK “Both Greg and Silvia were very accommodating and gave me great suggestions and recommendations for restaurants and sites to visit.” “Silvia and Greg are friendly and attentive hosts with plenty of great recommendations for places to eat.” “The innkeepers Greg and Silvia are friendly and professional, helpful and intuitive to guests needs.” “Silvia has this wonderful knack of being around when you need her yet you would never really know someone else is living on the property.” “We were in Cozumel to dive and Greg and Silvia did their utmost to keep us well rested and watered in between trips.” “Host Greg gave us amazing food recommendations, rental car information, and the dive crew that could not have worked out better.” “Greg and Silvia were wonderful and basically we can’t find anything to complain about!” “Greg and Silvia are kind, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the island.” “But the hands-down best part of staying at Los Alcatraces was Silvia and Greg.” “First of all Silvia and Greg were wonderful hosts, and happy to accommodate us in any way.”
