There's nothing like the view from the top! Imagine sitting in a hot tub on the balcony of your penthouse, watching the glorious sunset, sipping a chilled drink with gentle ocean breezes caressing your skin. Ahhhh!!
Next morning, you wake up early, eager for your first dive trip, or your beach chair with a book down on the ocean. You get your gear, head down the elevator and wait at your private boat dock to be picked up. Or you just settle into your lounge chair with a good book and snooze away the day.
Does this sound like the vacation for you? If so, come stay at Casa de Esperanza (House of Hope), a spacious, diver/family-friendly penthouse where you will find the finest drift diving in the world! It doesn't get any better than this!
Casa de Esperanza is in the penthouse (8th floor) of the gorgeous condominium building right across the street from City Hall. You are 3 blocks from downtown San Miguel (Cozumel), a 2-minute walk to the shops along the ocean, and yet you are far enough away from the tourist bustle to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and quiet.
From the balcony, you can enjoy the view that goes for miles across the Caribbean Ocean to Playa del Carmen, the Riviera Maya and Xcaret.
Two bedroom suites (one king and one queen) each have their own private baths that are fully accessible.
If you want to eat in, you can take advantage of the fully equipped kitchen with utensils and various small appliances.
Wireless high-speed DSL is available so bring your laptop!
The elevator takes you to the lobby (where there are laundry facilities) or the basement/garage, directly opposite the entrance to the beach and the tri-level pool. Tables with umbrellas and chairs, chaise lounges, palapas are on the clean white sand beach and by the pool.
There is a boat dock and dive rinse tanks; you can be picked up by any dive or tour outfit or scuba/snorkel right off your private beach. A secure storage locker is in the basement, so you don't have to cart your heavy wet gear up and down.
Across the street is Chedraui (a combination WalMart, Safeway, and Walgreen's) and the local Cineplex movie theatre, where you can sometimes catch the new release movies in English even before they hit the U.S.!
If you don't feel like cooking, there are many fine restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. Or you can hire a personal chef to come make meals for you. There's also a delivery service that will bring meals from many of the restaurants in town.
If you want authentic local food, stroll down any of San Miguel's side streets or go to the Mercado. The people are all delightful and friendly. The culture is warm and inviting. It is safe here!!!
Your multilingual, full-time American management and concierge service provides daily maid service and can arrange for any number of activities--day trips to Xcaret, renting a scooter or car, babysitters, even private chefs.
By the way, Cozumel is listed in travel magazines and by travel agents as one of the safest places to vacation in the world!!! This still applies now in 2013.
