Here are some of my personal favorite activities:

John Pennekamp coral reef state park: the first underwater park in the U.S., John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park encompasses approximately 70 nautical square miles. While the mangrove swamps and tropical hammocks in the park’s upland areas offer visitors a unique experience, it is the coral reefs and their associated marine life that bring most visitors to the park. Many enjoy the view of the reef from a glass-bottom boat tour, but visitors can get a closer look by scuba diving or snorkeling. Canoeing and kayaking through the park’s waters are popular activities; fishing is permitted in designated areas. Visitors can enjoy walking on short trails, picnicking, or swimming at the beach. The visitor center has a 30,000-gallon saltwater aquarium and nature videos are shown in its theater. Located at mile marker 102.5 overseas highway in Key Largo.

Theater of the sea: an educational and entertaining marine animal park where performances are up close and personal. At theater of the sea you can swim with dolphins, sea lions, and stingrays in their natural salt water lagoons through our interactive swim programs. The lagoons, and lush, tropical gardens at are home to atlantic Bottle-nose dolphins, California sea lions, sea turtles, tropical and game fish, sharks, stingrays, alligators, marine invertebrates, colorful parrots, and birds-of-prey.

Indian Key State Park: Indian Key, on the oceanside of Islamorada is an 11-acre island deserted except for the ruins of a town that existed there in the early 1800s, where men made a living off salvaging boats that had gone aground on the reef. Get adventurous and take a boat ride to visit and experience some warm, tropical sunshine and unique maritime history. In 1836, Indian Key became the first county seat for dade county. At that time, this tiny island was the site of a lucrative business-salvaging cargo from shipwrecks in the florida keys. Accessible only by canoe or kayak, visitors come here to swim, sunbathe, and hike. Fishing is also a popular activity. Boat and kayak rentals are available from Robbie's Marina . Located on the oceanside of u.S. 1 at mile marker 78.5.

Lignumvitae Key State Park: do a walking tour of the beautiful hardwood hammock, and also enjoy viewing the Matheson House built in 1919. The entire experience provides park patrons with a look at island life from a “time gone by.' The virgin tropical hardwood hammock that thrives on this island was once common on most of Florida's Upper Keys; most of these forests have been lost to development on other islands. In 1919, William J. Matheson, a wealthy Miami chemist, bought this tiny island and built a caretaker's home with a windmill for electricity and a cistern for rainwater. Today, his hideaway is the visitor center for this island forest. Ranger-guided tours are given twice daily, Friday through Sunday. The park is accessible only by private boat or tour boat. Tour boat services, as well as boat and kayak rentals, are available from Robbie's Marina. Located one mile west of U.S. 1 at mile marker 78.5.

Florida Keys Wild Bird Center: The Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center began quite by accident in 1984, when a veterinarian asked a woodcarver to help with some injured birds. The center is located in a natural setting alongside the bay (at mile marker 93.6), where you can see the real Florida Keys. When you visit, bring your camera! You'll find plenty of healthy, wild, and beautiful birds around -- along the boardwalk, up in the trees, and down along the bay. But the center isn't just for the birds!! Solution holes, cap rock, & pneumatophores are all around. Minnows, crabs, and sunsets appear regularly along the bay. Bromeliads are abundant along the nature trail.

Robbies Marina - 'amazing,' 'breathtaking' and 'impressive' are words we often hear from first-time visitors to the end of our dock. What they're referring to is the school of 50 to 100 tarpon that come here daily and linger for hours. Occasionally, a tarpon actually rises up from the water in a powerful flash of silver and green to meet the fish as it leaves your hand. It's a sight to behold! Maybe the 'silver kings' just come here to see the humans, but toss a baitfish among them and the water churns as these monsters and the resident pelicans vie for the snack, causing quite a spectacle.

Robbie and his wife Mona started feeding scarface 18 years ago. Scarface appeared floundering in the shallow waters near the dock; Robbie saw the struggling tarpon and, thinking it had swum too shallow and gotten stuck on the bank, went out into the water to free it. He lifted the fish and saw that the right side of its jaw was torn open. Hoping to revive the tarpon, Robbie placed it in the oxygen-rich shrimp tank and called old doc roach. The doctor showed up with his wife's mattress needles and some twine, and scarface became the first known tarpon with stitches. After several days of force-feeding, scarface showed good recovery and weight gain; six months later he was released into the waters off the dock. Afterwards, scarface continued to frequent the docks; sometimes bringing a friend. Soon more and more of the fish began to appear. Today, the tradition continues, with visitors from all across the world coming to marvel at the spectacle and offer these magnificent creatures a snack.

About Julian Acosta

We love our place and think you will too.

Julian Acosta purchased this condo in 1999

Why Julian Acosta chose Islamorada Area

Our families have been spending memorable vacations in the florida keys ever since 1999. Ever since we got the place we get to it every chance we get. So, much so that we purchased another unit in the same building in 02. We definitely have been infected by 'the key's disease' and look forward to many, many years of happy returns.

What makes this condo unique

What 's to love? Everything! The views from our private beach, our 5th floor viewing deck, the marina and just about everywhere you venture on the property. The heated pool, the gorgeous sunsets, friendly people, billiard room, fitness center, library and bonfires on the beach!

Relaxation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had the pleasure of staying at this condo for 8 nights - wish it could have been more! The condo itself has everything needed for a very comfortable stay and we really enjoyed some quiet time sitting on the parkside patio watching the squirrels play and enjoying the sunshine. Everything is so well maintained and the sunset views are breathtaking. Julian was also very quick to respond to any questions we had and for us Canadians who may not possess a “Winn Dixie” customer reward card for groceries, this is thoughtfully provided with your keys and saved us over $40USD on our groceries.

Looking forward to our next stay and it will be for more than 8 nights as there is still so much to see and do in the area!
