About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Cantamar is located just North (the quiet side) of the town square of San Miguel. We are only a 15 to 20 minute walk into town. Also, inexpensive taxis are readily available in front of Cantamar. This non-smoking, air-conditioned, modernly rustic mexicana unit is located at pool level. It offers a private terrace and easy access to the freshwater pool, man-made beach, and the beautiful Caribbean water. There is a freshwater shower and dive rinse tank located adjacent to our patio entrance - PERFECT for divers and snorkelers. The unit has two bedrooms with king beds, and a sectional sofa can accommodate one more adult, or two small children, if necessary. The master bedroom has it's own private bathroom and a spectacular ocean view! The ocean view from the condo living area and swimming pool is just beautiful! There is great snorkeling, with easy ocean access, just steps away from the condo.

Only eight units share a private swimming pool and a wonderful man-made beach, with two palapas for shade, and a lean-to pergola with shade. Maid service, is provided twice a week for a seven night stay. Additional days of maid service can be added for an extra $20 per day. Beach towels are not provided, so please bring your own. The kitchen is fully furnished with a breakfast bar, and the dining room table can accomodate six people. Free, unlimited, long distance to the US/Canada and free high speed wireless internet are also included, along with TV, DVD and CD player(with Ipod docking). Private, gated location right on the ocean. A great place to 'get away from it all'.

Cozumel is a diver's paradise, consistently regarded as one the best places, on this side of the continent, for scuba diving. The island is known for it's consistent 100-150 feet+ visibility and effortless drift diving. The water temperature ranges between a low of 76 in the winter months, to a high of 84 in the summer. The diving, snorkeling and beautiful, clear water make this a great vacation spot for water lovers.

Besides the great water activities, Cozumel has many GREAT restaurants for every price range and taste, and is a shopper's paradise. It's an extremely good value, compared to other high-priced Caribbean island locations.

About Alexandra Beyer

I am a stay at home housewife (domestic engineer) that keeps busy taking care of her hard working husband. We both enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling. I also enjoy traveling, gardening, biking, reading, cooking, eating.......especially at all of the great places in Cozumel that we can't wait to return to after every trip. We both have taken up underwater photography and have gotten some amazing photos!! We think Cozumel is the BEST! It's in our hearts and souls.

Alexandra Beyer purchased this condo in 2002

Why Alexandra Beyer chose San Miguel

We bought Cantamar 102 because, first of all - we loved Cozumel! We think it's the best diving this half of the hemisphere. We also love the people and the many fantastic restaraunts on the island. We chose this location because of the beauty and closeness of the ocean. The water is crystal clear and the snorkeling is great! We are North of town, about a 20 minute walk into town, on nicely paved walkways. That is a big plus for us! The North end is, typically, much quieter than South of town. It is easy to get to from the States, and it is rather inexpensive, compared to going to the Caymans or Bahamas (Cozumel has much better diving that either). We liked the building size and the fact that it was built the 'Mexican' way. Older building, but built to withstand hurricane winds. The building is quaint and private.

What makes this condo unique

We are RIGHT on the ocean, with a beautiful palm tree-lined view. Our condo is right at pool level. No need to go up and down numerous stairs. Diver's dream. Rinse your gear right in front of the bedroom patio and carry 10 ft to patio to dry. Quiet location away from town, but close enough to walk there (15-20 minutes).

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We feel so incredibly fortunate to have stayed at this beautiful condo in Cozumel. It was perfect for our family. The beds were so comfortable. We were able to do everything we loved and the instructions on where to go and what to do was very nice. We have stayed all over the island and although I was always afraid to venture North this was truly a wonderful location. Not too far from town. We were able to walk and find taxis. Thank you for opening your home to us. We would love to come back!

Wonderful and Relaxing Setting

  • 5 of 5

The location of this unit is fantastic, lovely views, quick trips to the pool and convenient walk to town. Snorkeling right in front is awesome, beds are very comfortable, and they have everything one needs. Can't wait to stay again.

Let me simply start by saying that our stay at Cantamar was hopefully the first of many to come. My husband and I have been traveling to Cozumel for over 20 years. Each trip we have sought lodging on the north shore. It didn't take us long to discover the fantastic snorkeling that exists right outside the "doorstep". The accommodations were, to say the least, very comfortable and clean. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't made available for us. AC (that actually worked really well ;+) plumbing, purified water, places to lounge, bedding, living spaces (both indoor and outdoor), kitchen and especially the pool, were well kept, clean and user friendly. The outdoor shower was nice to rinse off after going into the ocean. With two full baths and two bedrooms (both king beds) - this condo is perfect for two couples. We shared the condo with my sister and her husband and had a blast! The staff was available if we had questions about anything. Prior to the trip, during and even after - Lexi (condo owner) was only an email away, and so very helpful. She made sure our arrival would be smooth and we would feel welcome. Lexi made us feel like family. If you are interested in renting a condo with some of the best snorkeling from shore on the island - Cantamar is the place for you. This unit is right on the pool level. There is a partial wall and some shrubbery that keeps the patio area private from the pool. Going down a few stairs to the beach level and getting into the water to snorkel is very convenient. Getting a taxi into town is quick and easy OR a nice 15 minute walk. If you are looking for a bit of peace and quiet, away from the "all inclusive crowds" - this is the place for you. Oh... did I mention affordable?

Five years ago my wife and I booked Cantamar 102 for our honeymoon. I was immediately struck by the beauty of the water, the gorgeous view and stunning sunsets that can be seen from the condo. Throwing open the curtains in the morning reveals a front lawn of crystal blue Caribbean water with a cruise ship lazily floating by. The man made beach is wonderful to sit and watch the sun set, cigar and drink in hand. The interior of the condo is clean, lively decorated and furnished with everything needed for a long stay. If we had decided to stay in the condo all week we would have only needed to run to the grocery store one time. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the guest & master bedrooms can easily accomodate a couple each with their king sized beds. The two bathrooms in the condo are also great, there's never a rush or a wait. Internet was 20mbps and very reliable during our last visit. The TV is modern with HDMI inputs in case you want to bring an Apple TV for a rainy day or for the kids. The VOIP phone makes calling home a breeze and the local phone makes calling places in town easy. Cantamar is only about a mile away from the center of town; it's outside of the hustle and bustle of the cruise ships but close enough that a 15 minute walk gets you almost anywhere you want to go. Want to skip the walk? Take a cab. Cabs drive by very regularly and can provide a cheap, two minute long ride into town. We have returned two additional times since our honeymoon and always enjoyed the condo. My wife loves going into town to visit the spa, get a cup of coffee or go shopping. I love to sign up for diving in the mornings and hit Casa del Habanos for a great cigar. Snorkeling off the dock is excellent as there is a small reef nearby with lots of fish. This place is home away from home! I only wish we could visit more often :)

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 young teens) stayed in April for a week. The condo was just as described and the view was spectacular! The condo was equipped with everything we needed for our stay and was very clean. We had breakfast and lunch at the condo most days. The snorkeling at the condo was great, as good as any we experienced on the island. We snorkeled and used the pool just about every day. We walked into town easily and took a cab back most days. The restaurants Lexie suggested were all great. Definitely try to venture off the cruise ship strip as the restaurants near the port are more expensive. We hit Buccanos, Chakanaab and money bar bar for some different snorkeling experiences and all were excellent. Lexi was great to deal with (I had lots of questions), she responded promptly. We were glad we opted out of the all inclusive resorts and choose a condo, we got to experience more of the island and the locals than we would have otherwise. Not being able to drink the water was no issue for us at all, the condo had plenty of fresh water for drinking. We are back home wishing for the beautiful view, spectacular sunsets, watching the cruise ships come and go and the laid back atmosphere of beautiful Cozumel. I would definitely stay at this condo again should we ever venture back! Loved every minute.
