An enchanting luxury residence named after the Mayan word for sunrise, dawn and new beginnings, Casa Zama is the embodiment of contemporary Mexican design and modern comfort. The villa is located on quiet Isla Mujeres, a short distance off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula and is accessible via ferry from Cancun. Ringed with colorful coral reefs and home to abundant schools of exotic fish, the area is popular for snorkeling and scuba diving.
A thatched bar area by the swimming pool is great for entertaining in the evening and mixing sunset cocktails. A stone, rooftop terrace with loungers is perfect for quieter moments under the sun or stars. Or take a well deserved soak in the outdoor jetted tub while breathing in the fresh sea air. Perhaps a refreshing snooze in a hammock after a little snorkeling? The tropical experience awaits! Indoors at Casa Zama, you will find a home theatre with sound system and iPod dock. Wi-Fi access is complimentary. Your reservation includes housekeeping and gourmet breakfasts six days a week.
Vibrant colors and open, sunbathed rooms alongside the soothing sounds of water define the ambience at Casa Zama. Carefully crafted by its owners, who worked with a renowned local architect, the home is a modern take on traditional Mexican design, immersed with earthy elements like stone and wood. Inviting art and artifacts appear around every corner. The spacious living and dining areas are white, bright and lead straight onto the pool deck, which overlooks the ocean from its elevated position.
Accommodations for six include two deluxe suites, plus an additional room with twin bunk beds, suitable for younger guests. The two deluxe suites are air conditioned and have en-suite bathrooms complete with luxurious rain showers, ocean views and Bvlgari toiletries. Top quality beddings help provide soothing nights of rest.
At Casa Zama, you will be just a five minute walk to the nearest beach and a few minutes from town. Isla Mujeres also boasts a number of intriguing attractions including swimming with the dolphins, Captain Dulche’s Museum of naval history and the Cancun Underwater Museum where the submerged sculptures act as enchanting silent companions during your dive. From golf to water sports, shopping and nightlife, there is something for everyone under the soothing Riviera sun!

Isla Mujeres has many enjoyable activities that range from relaxing on the beach with an icy cocktail, to tangling with a mighty sailfish on a sport fishing excursion to swimming with dolphins and whale sharks. You can also take advantage of the islands’ proximity to many other great excursions such as Tulum.
There are many snorkeling and diving operations that take groups out to some of the local reefs for some fantastic snorkeling. In most cases a reservation is not necessary to arrange a trip. Around the ferry dock and the beach there are usually representatives available for snorkel and dive trips. Equipment is usually included in the price and the guides are very knowledgeable about the local reefs and marine life.
If you are interested in scuba diving, there are several great dive facilities located on Isla Mujeres. Diving around the island provides a wonderful experience for beginning, intermediate and experienced divers. There are reefs in shallow, low current water for the new divers to reef drift dives for the more experienced. For the truly experienced, try the Cave of the Sleeping Sharks on one of the local shipwrecks like Ultra Freeze. At least a one day notice is required for the smaller dives. Information is readily available near the ferry dock as well as the downtown dive shops.
Garrafón Natural Reef Park is a snorkel park located at the southern tip (Punta Sur) of Isla Mujeres. This park is unique as there is a reef located just a few feet off the shore with many colorful fish. This makes for wonderful snorkeling without having to book a trip or get on a boat. For those not interested in snorkeling there are lots of hammocks and chairs for resting, a huge pool for cooling yourself and plenty of staff just waiting to bring you snacks, lunch or drinks!! This is a great day trip for families with small children.
Take a day or more trip to see some fantastic Mexican sites. Anything from a day trip shopping in Cancun’s Malls and Mercados to trips to view the ruins of Tulum will make an exciting addition to your holiday. The Cancun-Tulum corridor(Riviera Maya) provides all sorts of excursions. Here, there are a couple of natural parks as well as quaint cities such as Playa del Carmen (ferries depart daily from Playa to Cozumel).
