Casa Acuario is the Gem of Cozumel! Compare our luxury 4BR penthouse to any other property and you know you have found the real deal. This is the very best! Enjoy sitting in your private hot tub on the balcony of your 8th floor penthouse, watching the spectacular Cozumel sunset, sipping a chilled drink in gentle ocean breezes. Ahhhh!! Next morning, you wake up early, eager for your first dive trip, or your beach chair with a book down at the pool area. You get your gear, head down the elevator and wait at your private dock to be picked up. Or you just settle into your lounge chair with a good book and snooze away the day. Or head off to golf, or deep-sea fishing, or an ATV adventure... or maybe help out with the annual sea-turtle conservation rescue... Does this sound like the vacat...Casa Acuario is the Gem of Cozumel! Compare our luxury 4BR penthouse to any other property and you know you have found the real deal. This is the very best!

Does having a dive experience where you feel like you're flying across the reef thrill you? Or perhaps you want to travel with a large group and not feel like you're on top of each other? A family reunion where you are all comfortable? If so, come stay at Casa Acuario , 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 Acuario is the penthouse (8th floor) in the gorgeous condominium building right across the street from City Hall. Your views are breathtaking facing the west, the south and across the island as well! 3 blocks from downtown San Miguel (Cozumel), a 2-minute walk to the shops along the ocean, and yet you are away from the tourist bustle to enjoy the crystal-clear waters in quiet. Unprecedented luxury in a building built to the highest quality standards. To quote one of our recent tenants: 'The Casa exceeded our expectations which rarely ever happens.' Your secure elevator opens right at the door of your Casa. Open your door, and the first thing that greets you is a breath-taking view across the Caribbean to Playa del Carmen and Xcaret through the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. All windows and sliding glass doors have screens, and there are tropical wood ceiling fans in every room should you prefer gentle breezes and the sound of the waves to air-conditioning. As you enter the Salon, you see custom ceramic tile floors, striking carved wood, rattan, and leather furniture, comfortable sofas and chairs, lots of reading lights, a satellite-TV, DVD/CD, and stereo with surround sound. Casa Acuario's 4200 sq ft gives ample room for everyone to find a special nook or sufficient room to socialize and party. It's perfect for large groups of friends or family gatherings. The dining table seats 10 comfortably. There is a wine refrigerator, bar stools, a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel LG appliances and various small appliances. Four expansive bedroom suites each have their own private baths and balconies (check out the photos!). The Casa sleeps 8 people easily — no tripping over each other and plenty of privacy. One bedroom is even set up as an office if you want to work a little while you play. There is also a beautiful powder room just inside the front door. Wireless high-speed internet is available so bring your laptop and digital toys! FREE calls to USA or Canada. On the 800+ sq ft. oceanfront veranda is a hot tub (seats 6 to 8), chaise lounges, a table with 4 chairs and more. The veranda wraps around the south side of the building so you have a panoramic view. Your elevator also takes you to 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 many 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 with a selection of the latest movies in English. If you don't feel like cooking, there are many fine restaurants within walking distance or a short cab ride away. Many local restaurants will deliver to the penthouse, or if you wish, we can refer you to a chef who can prepare your meals for you. 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. Your multilingual, full-time American management and concierge service provides maid service and can arrange for any number of activities – day trips to Xcaret, renting a scooter or car or even babysitters. By the way, Cozumel is listed in travel magazines and by travel agents as one of the safest places to vacation in the world!!! More

About the neighbourhood
The perfect location! The only things between you and the ocean are the beach chairs, sand and palapas. You are within walking distance to town, shopping, restaurants and nightlife, and there are two major grocery / department stores right across the street. Plus, there is a private pier right at the base of the building where the dive boats will pick you up!
