Gonzalo Guerrero Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Private Guest House

Sandy beaches, stunning sunsets, and beautiful blue waters. All are on vibrant display at our tropical guest house at Los Alcatraces on Cozumel, Mexico’s largest Caribbean island.

Perfect for a romantic getaway, our accommodations give you the privacy and safety of your own place, plus the convenience of having knowledgeable hosts on-site.

Structured like a small boutique Hotel, our en-suite bedrooms have their own private entrance. Guests share the pool, garden, and covered patio.


The bedroom features a queen-sized bed with butter soft, 1000-thread count Egyptian cotton linens you can sink into after a long day. There is plenty of closet space for you to store your belongings as well as a locked safe for your more precious items. For an extra jolt in the morning, brew a fresh cup of organic coffee from Chiapas in the comfort of your own room.

The en-suite bathroom is stocked with toiletries and towels so you don’t need to worry about taking up space in your suitcase!


Our relaxing garden is the perfect backdrop to start your day, watching hummingbirds whilst you sip your morning coffee.

Since the average daily temperature in Cozumel is 75°F (24°C) or higher year-round, you’ll want to take a dip in our refreshing pool to cool down. We also have lounge chairs for you to work on your tan, too.

If you would rather explore the Technicolor coral reefs in the Caribbean, we also have a rinse tank and clothesline to wash and dry your scuba gear after a busy day of diving.


Our guest house is located within walking distance of the town center. We’re just far enough away from all of the tourists to give you a taste of the real Cozumel. You can mingle with the locals at nearby markets and enjoy authentic cuisine.

Cozumel is a scuba diver’s paradise! The island offers an array of beaches (many of the “iron-shore” variety), each teeming with intricate coral reefs and endless sightings of beautiful marine life.

If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience on the beach, head over to a Beach Club. For a small fee, you can rent a lounge chair and unwind under the shade of a thatched roof.

Whether you’re coming to get away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday life, or to explore the beauty Cozumel has to offer, we are here to assist you every step of the way. Book your tropical holiday today!

Los Alcatraces Cozumel Includes: Coffee Maker, Organic Coffee from Chiapas, Electricity, Maid Service, Filtered Water, Wifi Internet, Cable TV, Pool, Refrigerator, Air Conditioning, Room Safe, 1000 Thread Count Sheets, Shampoo, Soap, and a Dive Gear Wash Tank.

About Silvia Lira-Lupone

Thank you for visiting our Los Alcatraces Cozumel website. We hope you allow us to help you have the perfect vacation. Make some time to visit Cozumel and enjoy the rewards of that immeasurable experience as we did.

Back in 1992, I came to this tranquil place in Mexico because I sorely needed a dive vacation. The inherent traits of genuine care for others and love of family are apparent in this special place. It is the natural charm of the Cozumel people that lures visitors in. Holidays are an important part of the annual calendar, where the Mexican people show their national pride. Then in 2009 I met my beautiful wife Silvia on the island and the permanent transformation started.

The unfortunate thing is that today’s workaholic climate makes many of us feel guilty, weak or bad for taking some downtime. We often overlook the importance of proper rest and relaxation, but without it our bodies don’t have time to repair, recuperate and grow. If you have lost your gusto for work, then it’s time for an inspiration top up. Visiting places that move you and doing things that you’re passionate about are an instant fast-track to idea heaven. Stagnant surroundings make for a bored and dull you, so get your juices flowing by pumping some good endorphins into your body. And how do you do that? Sunlight, laughter, healthy food, exercise, and fresh air are all guaranteed to have you bouncing off the walls with enthusiasm.

Los Alcatraces Cozumel is our home and can allow you to peacefully chill out and turn the volume down in your head. To give your lungs and bloodstream a chance to clear you need around 72 hours in pure, fresh air every few months. You can find this on the island of Cozumel. Let us help you strip away the hustle and bustle of the working week, so you can get to the core of who you really are.

We look forward to serving you in person!

Clean, safe, comfortable and modern.

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Cozumel for 7 days for vacation. I was very pleased with the warm welcome and hospitality throughout my stay. I am a Marriott and Hilton girl and was not disappointed with the amenities, cleanliness, and comfort of my room. The bathroom was large (bigger than most hotels) and the linens and bed were very comfortable. I decided to stay in this quaint hotel because I wanted to experience the culture of Cozumel, which I was able to do. I was a bit skeptical when I got out of my taxi because the surrounding homes did not resemble what I was used to, however the area is very safe. I traveled alone and walked the streets until late in the night and did not fear for my safety once. I did not have a car for most of my trip, however per Greg's advice I rented a car for $40 to visit the other side of the island which was beautiful. Both Greg and Silvia were very accommodating and gave me great suggestions and recommendations for restaurants and sites to visit. The grocery store, souvenir shops and of course the beach are a 5-10 minute walk. The ferry to Cancun is a 10 minute walk and runs every 30 minutes for about $8 each way. I am glad I chose to stay at Los Alcatraces and highly recommend this property for couples and single travelers.

Excellent location, great hosts, very clean room with all necessary amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this location was a bit over a week and I highly recommended it. Customer service was great - both Sylvia and Greg are great hosts. Room was very clean and had all the amenities I needed (TV, drinking water, small refrigerator, comfortable bed and most importantly air conditioner). Great restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Looking forward to returning next year during Christmas holidays.

Fantastic hosts, location, and accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time in Cozumel that my husband and I ventured away from the "flight and room" packages. We were very pleasantly surprised. The tropical room and pool area was amazing space with a breakfast each morning of pastries, fruit, juice and Mexican coffee. The location was walking distance to the center of town, many local restraurants and the large grocery store. We will definitely be back and stay with Greg and Silvia.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Greg and Silvia's. The location was close enough to town to easily walk yet far enough away to not have tourists everywhere. Lots of small restaurants close by. The pool was a great way to cool off when the weather got hot. Every morning Greg delivered breakfast to the table in front of our room, a great way to start the day. The best part of the room were the sheets, I want some for my house. Only complaint was the coffee was weak. Highly recommend this property and we will definitely stay there again if we go back to Cozumel.
