About the property

Studio Apartment - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 2)

Put your life on island time. Wake up to the sound of waves and stunning Caribbean sunrises.

Nestled on the edge of the friendly neighbourhood, La Gloria, Casitas del Mar offers you the opportunity to share the welcoming local ambiance.

Collect beautiful shells and sea glass as you stroll along the rocky and sandy shore or relax on the patio as you watch the world, and perhaps a few dolphins, go by.

Ideal for singles, couples or groups of friends, each suite has been tastefully decorated with a Mexican flair. Your Canadian hosts, Joyce and Bob (Isla residents since 1993), have carefully equipped each suite with everything you need to make you feel at home.

Ocean front and ideally located at mid-island (see map) you have easy access to all island sites by walking or a quick, inexpensive taxi ride. Casitas del Mar's studio apartments are perfect for those who desire a true Isla experience.

With only a 5 minute taxi ride to Centro (downtown), you will have the best of both worlds.

The bus line is 2 short blocks away. Secured WiFi is provided and a well-stocked grocery store, several convenience stores, laundry service as well as several neighborhood restaurants and take-out stands are also within easy walking distance.

Cancun Airport to Isla Mujeres;: You can take a bus, van or taxi (prices vary) from the airport to Gran Puerto in Puerto Juarez.. The round-trip crossing takes 20 minutes each way and costs 146 pesos (approximately $11.00 U.S.). Once on Isla Mujeres take a taxi to Casitas del Mar. The cost is 40 pesos (less than $4 U.S.). Detailed information on how to get to Casitas del Mar from the airport will be sent with your confirmation.

Incredible hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was consistent with all their other reviews on the internet. Clean, comfortable, nicely equiped, superb view and location. But notice how everyone talks about the hosts? It's not people just being polite. I had a minor injury on the ferry and needed to have it looked at. Literally in 10 minutes Joyce had called her doctor and we were in her car on the way to the office. Later the same day we had a death in the family and had to go home asap. Our phones don't work on the island so Joyce and Bob to the rescue. Aside from their genuine condolences, they had us set up in their living room using their phone to make all the international calls we needed to make arrangements. Usually we are very low maintenance guests but we were never made to feel that we were intruding. We couldn't get a flight for two days and they continued to check in on us. Thanks to their help (and despite Spirit stranding us in an airport overnight) we got to the viewing with two hours to spare. These are truely lovely people who really do want you to enjoy your entire island experience. I am fortunate to be able to afford any lodging the island has to offer and we have rented different luxury villas for the family every Christmas for several years. But if it's just the two of us traveling again, I know not just where to stay but with whom.

Great place to stay! Spotless and well equipped, very nice beds and even a blender for DIY margaritas on the patio. Beautiful water views. The neighbourhood is fascinating and we always felt safe. Enjoyed our jaunts to the local bakery and fresh juice counter every day. Joyce will provide lots of info on how things work, like taxi and bus fares, also places to visit and dining options. One of our best holidays ever.
