Luxury condominium with only 16 residences and private infinity swimming poo
Despite the sheer natural beauty (and wonderful beaches) of Isla Mujeres, the island off the Caribbean coast of Mexico remains something of a closely-guarded secret. But the attractions are numerous here, with lush jungle, abundant sea life and even an underwater museum (the famous Museo Subacuatico).
And then there’s the vibe, classic Mexican beach-town cool (think golf carts on the roads and bike-friendly navigation) with a wonderfully friendly character.
The best part is that it’s all just a 20-minute ferry ride from the tourism hub of Cancun.
So if you are looking for a place to stay on this tiny, 500-meter-wide paradise, we have you covered with our luxury condo.Designed by renowned architect Mario Lazo, Sotavento Isla is new construction offering a one bedroom luxury condominium with a contemporary open floor plan featuring spacious living and dining areas, imported tiled floors, custom-crafted woodwork and cabinetry, granite countertops and ocean view balcony. A premier property on a secluded Caribbean island just off the coast of Cancun in the Mexican Caribbean.
Our condo, is 10 minutes from town and is best accessed by renting a golf cart so you can navigate the island with ease and comfort. On the island there are many wonderful attractions including the Garrafon Park next door and the Ixchel Mayan ruin within walking distance at Punta Sur. Relaxation is the most important feature of this location.
Our new, state of the art facility provides an elegant setting in which to enjoy this unique location combining Mayan history, Mexican culture, Carribean waters, and a multicultural personality with wonderful people and exceptional experiences.

About Robert Dobbs
We have been traveling to Isla Mujeres for over 25 years. During our travels, we have explored many resorts throughout the Caribbean and were most impressed by this island due to it's proximity to the United States and Canada as well as the overall beauty of the island and the warmth of the people. We were so much impressed by the amenities offered by Sotavento, together with its excellant location on this wonderful and beautiful island that we actually bought this home in 2015.

Why Robert Dobbs chose Isla Mujeres
Sotavento Isla offers the finest caribbean views of any property on the Island .Professional property management offering concierge service to our guests from the time they arrive until departure. Fish-shaped Isla Mujeres lies 13km (8 miles) northeast of Cancún, a quick ferry ride away but what feels like a world removed from its glittery neighbor. Despite this proximity, I consider Isla Mujeres a little-known gem filled with historic and rustic charm. During pre-Hispanic times, Maya women would cross over to the island to make offerings to the goddess of fertility, Ixchel. More than 40 sites containing shrines remain around the island, and archaeologists still uncover the small dolls that were customarily part of those offerings. Passenger ferries travel to Isla Mujeres from Cancún's Puerto Juárez and the Hotel Zone's Embarcadero at Playa Linda; car ferries leave from Punta Sam. This place not only has a warm Mexican climate and warm Mexican people, but it has an intimacy combined with a history that makes it a compelling place to explore, either on a superficial level, as day trippers from Cancun can attest, but deeper as naturalists, divers, snorkelers, as those who sink deeper into the beaches, relaxation and beauty of the waters surrounding our location. Sotavento is luxury finished and with its amenities, style and location is a uniquely desirable development. From the roof terrace, a common space upstairs, one can observe sunrise over the Caribbean Sea as well as the sunsets over Cancun that can be enjoyed from our home.

Spectacular condo and breathtaking views!
The minute we walked into the condo lobby our eyes captured the breathtaking view of the ocean and infinity pool. The condo was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed to feel like home. High end amenities and a king size bed were much appreciated after the long beach days. The south end of the island is relaxed and only a $7 taxi ride to the north end of the island. We will be back as soon as we can!
Thank you for your kind comments!
Great location. Beautiful balcony with awesome sunsets. I loved all the communication, before, during and after. Easy to book our ferry ahead of time and just grab a cab ($100 pesos) from the ferry dock. Clean and spacious. Very comfy bed. Golf cart was rented ahead of time and delivered to the condo. Picked up fresh seafood at Marbella (right down the road) and enjoyed dinner on the balcony. Supermarket was a short golf cart ride and had everything we needed. Washer and dryer was great and easy to use. Kitchen had the basics that we needed. Very quiet. We will be back. Thank you Robert for sharing your beautiful home.
One of the best places ever visited

An Incredible Property With Amazing Views
If you're planning a trip to Isla Mujeres, don't miss an opportunity to stay here! The location is perfect on the south end of the island away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The views, facing west towards Cancun, are incredible. A viewing platform on the roof gives a panoramic view of Garrafon Park where you can enjoy a small private beach and snorkeling just steps from the vacation rental. You can also easily walk to The Joint Reggae Bar and beautiful sunsets each morning at Punta Sur and the Mayan Temple.
The property itself is gated, kept well maintained by a friendly staff and protected by an overnight attendant although, in the month I was there, security was never a concern. There is a very nice infinity pool on the west side that gets great sun and allows you to watch the sailboats in the Caribbean as you float on one of the two rafts provided by the owner. There is a garage and parking if you decide to rent a scooter or cart although it is a small island, so it is just a long walk or short cab ride (100 pesos) to Playa Norte or El Centro. The Chedderai will allow you to stock up on groceries and just about anything else you'll need (60 pesos).
The condo is large (about 1,000 sq ft) and set up very nicely. There is a bedroom with a very comfortable King bed and bath with walk-in shower as you first walk in. Plenty of room in the two closets and attached shelving. The washer and dryer in the storage closet and plenty of beach towels are a great bonus and allows for minimal packing. The kitchen has a full refrigerator, electric range, microwave, blender and plenty of counter space. A dining area includes a table and chairs and the living area has a pullout futon with flat screen TV with cable. There is reliable wifi throughout the condo and a two zone AC system for the hottest months of the summer. Other than that, the three ceiling fans, Punta Sur breezes and the sliding glass doors that open completely, will do a proper job keeping the unit cool.
This is a great unit in an wonderful complex of some of the nicest and newest condos on the island. As good as everything else is, it is the views, from the pool, the patio, the inside of the condo, and the amazing viewing platform on the roof that will provide you with some of the best views on island and the final reason to choose this property!
Great place! Location pretty far from the action.
Nice view, king size bed while big took some getting used to
Sotavento is a luxury condo in Isla Mujeres, located along the gorgeous coastline of the island, just a short distance from downtown and Garrafón National Park. Perched on a small cliff overlooking the sea, our guests just have to walk down a short flight of stairs to reach a secluded cove of private beach. Isla Mujeres is well kept secret… a small island located a short distance from the shores of world famous Cancun. It's a beautiful and peaceful place that combines the beauty of the Caribbean, the lush jungle and the grandeur of the Mayan civilization. The island can be reached easily by ferry that departs from Puerto Juarez and different points in the Cancun Hotel Zone from 5:30 am until 12:00 am, every 30 minutes. These landmarks, along with numerous beach clubs / hotels / restaurants are just minutes walking distance from Sotavento Condo: Garrafon National Reef Park is known worldwide for it's beauty and incredible recreational activities like snorkeling, kayaking, ziplining and hiking. The Mayans built a temple to the Goddess Ixchel at the South-eastern most tip of the island. Ixchel was the Mayan Goddess of the Moon and childbirth and was closely associated with the sophisicated Mayan astronomical readings taken here and elsewhere. The remnants of this temple are still there as well as a casual restaurant. It is at what is essentially the most southern tip of Isla Mujeres.
