Hacienda San Miguel your home in Cozumel Hacienda San Miguel your home in Cozumel.

A short distance from the town square and a half a block from the main avenue Rafael Melgar.

Close to all the restaurants and shops of the town of Cozumel.

Free continental breakfast daily in this three star Cozumel Bed and Breakfast.

One-half block to the water-front.

One of the good things the founding families of Cozumel really did right was to construct a wide sidewalk along the waterfront next to the sea wall not far from Hacienda San Miguel. The seawall which is bright white and trimmed in aqua has cement benches built into it.

And a few blocks away is a museum.

Professionally presented displays begin on the first floor with the island's natural history. Fine examples from the famed coral reefs are a must for snorkelers and divers eager to learn more about Cozumel's undersea flora and fauna. An interactive exhibit about the island's Mayan era features a curator wearing a period costume looking so funny, and explaining indigenous culture while kids laugh at him.

Next, it's on to the era of Spanish galleons and British pirates, dueling it out on the Caribbean's high seas.

Long ago in Cozumel, when sailing ships navigated the waves, a captain and his crew were in danger of being boarded by a bad pirate ship. As the crew became frantic, the captain bellowed to his First Mate, "Bring me my red shirt!". The First Mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt, which the captain put on and lead the crew to battle the pirate boarding party. Although some casualties occurred among the crew, the pirates were beaten.
Later that day, the lookout screamed that there were two pirate vessels sending boarding parties. The crew cowered in fear, but the captain calm as ever bellowed, "Bring me my red shirt!". The battle was on, and once again the Captain and his crew repelled both boarding parties.
Weary from the battles, the men hung around on deck that night talking about the day's occurrences when an ensign looked to the Captain and asked, "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before the battle?". The Captain, giving the ensign a look that only a captain can give, exhorted, "If I am wounded in battle, the red shirt does not show the wound and thus, you men will continue to fight unafraid". The men sat in silence marveling at the courage of such a stupid man.
As dawn came the next morning, the lookout screamed that there were pirate ships, twenty of them, all with boarding parties on their way.
The men became silent and looked to their Captain for his usual command. The Captain, calm as ever, bellowed, "Bring me my brown pants!!"

The passengers got away and went to a great bed and breakfast called Hacienda San Miguel. Best Cozumel bed and breakfast there is. Stayed here myself.

Cozumel is one of the ten municipalities of the state of Quintana Roo. Cozumel is a leading tourist destination for its beaches, scuba diving, and awesome snorkeling. The main town on the island is San Miguel de Cozumel.
The island is around 48 km (30 mi) long and 16 km (9.9 mi) wide. With a total area of 477.961 km2 (184.542 sq mi), it is Mexico's largest Caribbean island, and Mexico's third-largest island.
The Maya are believed to have first settled Cozumel by the early part of the 1st millennium AD, trying to find a shorter route to Europe. And older Preclassic Olmec artifacts have been found on the island as well as a discarded beer can. The island was sacred to Ix Chel, the Maya Moon Goddess, and the temples here were a place of pilgrimage, especially by women desiring fertility.
There are a number of ruins on the island, most from the Post-Classic period. The largest Maya ruins on the island were near the downtown area and that has now been destroyed to make a parking lot.
Today, the largest remaining ruins are at San Gervasio, located approximately at the center of the island.

The first Spanish expedition to visit Cozumel was led by Juan de Grijalva in 1518; in the following year Hernán Cortés getting lost or confused stopped by the island on his way to Veracruz. The Grijalva and Cortés expeditions were both received peacefully by the Maya of Cozumel, unlike the expeditions’ experiences on other parts of the mainland.
The native inhabitants of the island continued to help the Spanish re-supply their ships with food and water so they could continue their voyages. How did the Spanish thank these good people? Cortés destroyed some of the Maya idols on Cozumel and replaced them with an image of the Virgin Mary. Then infected the innocent people with smallpox. As many as 10,000 Maya lived on the island then, but in 1520, The smallpox left only 186 men and 172 women were left alive on Cozumel, driving down real estate values.

Not many people know that in 1861, American President Abraham Lincoln ordered his Secretary of State, William Henry Seward (who was later to purchase the Russian Territory of Alaska for the US in 1867), to meet with the Mexican charge d’affaires Matias Romero to explore the possibility of purchasing the island of Cozumel for the purpose of relocating freed American slaves offshore. The idea was summarily dismissed by Mexican President Benito Juarez, who told him k se ch. su m*dr*

Town House is a two bedroom master suite; Kitchen, living/dining area and half restroom are on the main floor. 2 Queen size bedrooms with private bathroom and independent air-conditioned on the upper level.

The Jr Suite is a one bedroom with one queen-size bed and a single bed .

Cozumel, bed and breakfast lodgings Cozumel Hacienda San Miguel the place to dive and snorkel near the town Situated near a beautiful reef, close to the Cozumel Convention Center, and right in downtown San Miguel. The ideal place for those who appreciate an eclectic atmosphere. All of these fully equipped suites feature a view of the gardens and a spacious private balcony. Cozumel has no B&B like this.
Cozumel is one of the best spots to practice diving and snorkeling along impressive reefs.
Your home in Cozumel. The Hacienda San Miguel is next to the town not far from Chacanaab lagoon the best snorkeling place this side of heaven.

The reefs surrounding Cozumel’s shores include some of the largest and oldest corals in the world , little known until 1961, when a TV documentary produced by the famous Jacques Cousteau brought the Palancar Reef to the forefront of the diving world.
Since then, scuba diving and snorkeling has flourished in Cozumel, with many dive environments including dramatic depths right near your all-inclusive lodgings in Cozumel Palace hotel, awesome underwater cliffs, strange caverns and idyllic shallow reefs.
Combine all this with the island’s long tradition of gracious hospitality and it is not be surprising that Cozumel is considered the dive capital of the western hemisphere. And hotel Cozumel Palace the capital of Cozumel!

The town:
With a little more than 6000 inhabitants and a street grid so logical that you can't get lost unless you're Joel, the best way to see the city is to wander about without any itineraries just do it.
Take a stroll around Parque Benito Juarez in Plaza Central or through downtown, where one-way streets cunfuse out-of-town drivers and local drivers probably don't have licenses.
Cafes in San Miguel open early and are fun places to sit and watch the town start its day.
For a nice walk, head east along the Avenida Benito Juarez past the Iglesia de San Miguel , then turn south along Avenida 25 Sur and walk one block to the Town Market and local school or north to Rosa's Cantina.
Head east along Calle Adolfo Rosada Salas to Avenida Pedro Joaquin Coldwell and the Baseball park. If you keep walking south to Avenida 11 Sur and then turn toward the waters you pass by the island's cemetery on the right and City Hall (boring) best north to Rosa's Cantina.
Back in town you can enjoy an excellent breakfast in Mu seo de la Isla de Cozumel unless of course you booked Hacienda San Miguel with CancunSteve then you want that great breakfast at the hotel.


underwater photo while snorkeling in CozumelI took this photo in the vecinity of Hotel Hacienda San Miguel while snorkeling.
After your stay here you'll know why Cozumel is the prefered snorkeling and diving location this side of heaven.
The magical waters in the vecinity of the hotel San Miguel are a natural aquarium. The island has some of the world's most challenging wall dives.
And for the snorkeler shallow reefs abound.

God has made Cozumel’s uniqueness since the island protects the reefs from the powerful open ocean waves crashing on its western side. This reverse-barrier reef system or something along those lines and the gentle current from the Gulf Stream provide Cozumel with unmatched transparent waters and those ideal conditions for diving or snorkeling in a distinctive ecosystem.

Then get on back to your room; open the fridge; take out a bottle of wine; some cheese. And talk about the aventures you had snorkeling today.

What a great day.

This maniac escaped from a European insane asylum. He boarded a steamer across the Atlantic and somehow got to Cozumel.

All he wants to do is dive and snorkel but he can be bothersome.

If while browsing around downtown Cozumel you should run into this kookoo or my sister, just stun with the CancunSteve spaceship.

Move the ship using the arrow keys (first click anywhere on the black area.
Move the ship up or down or right to left with the arrow keys.
Then use the <CONTROL> key to fire your stun rays at the maniac.

Downtown Cozumel has everything from high-toned waterfront jewelry stores like Van Cleef & Arpels to little holes in the wall crammed with hand-painted batik hangings, carved wood crafts and papier mache animals and other nic nacs.
But, although San Miguel's downtown waterfront is lovely, you will generally not get the best prices if you do shop here. And keep a lookout for the kookoo!
You'll have a far more rewarding shopping experience both in terms of prices and ambience if you avoid what the locals call the rip off and head off on your own. Always avoiding the kookoo from Europe.

Cozumel eateries:
The coffee bean

There's the Mexican bistro Kinta
This menu is inspired by the tradition and history of Mexico itself.
They Use the roots of Mexican gastronomy creating a contemporary Mexican cuisine using the freshest local ingredients that are available.
Chef Wallenta in his cute white conical hat blends his passion for Mexican flavor with a balance of textures to delight your senses.
They have a delicious pollo chilango. It is stuffed with chaya. And panela cheese. A Huitlacoche sauce.

Alfredo de Roma:
The opportunity to dine graciously amid crystal and candlelight (and blessedly cool air-conditioning) is just one reason to do a special dinner at Alfredo's.
The pastas are made fresh daily (not from a plastic package at the supermarket), and cheeses are flown in from Italy (the customs folks love it) so that the chef can prepare the house special—authentic fettuccine Alfredo right at your table.
The carpaccio, spaghetti with lobster, and Chilean sea bass in white wine and tomato sauce are all superb, and the wine cellar is the largest on the island and as a matter of fact the last time Raul went down there he got lost for a week. When we found him he was souced to the gills.
Book a table for early evening and enjoy the sunset view through wall-length windows.

OR do as we do. Stroll down the avenue along the water two blocks from the hotel Hacienda San Miguel and pick out those restaurants that look good to you. Can't go wrong friend.

For those staying a month it is important to know there's a Chedrau supermarket a few short blocks from Hacienda San Miguel. When we stayed here shopped there myself for groceries for our kitchen.
Find fruits, vegtables, meats, fish, milk, cereal, all those supermarket things you'll need.

A few blocks from Hacienda San Miguel is the Cinco Soles shop.
This is the only place you will need to stop. Although they have the ubiquitous t-shirts and beachwear available everywhere, the also carry the very best selection of authentic Mexican handicrafts available. In travel to several cities in Mexico, I found no better selection of good quality items.
For those longer stays there's time to explore archeological sites:
San Gervasio is an archaeological site of the pre-Columbian Maya civilization, located in the northern part of the island not very far from Hacienda San Miguel.
San Gervasio's pre-Hispanic name was Tantun Cuzamil, Mayan for Flat Rock in the place of the Swallows or maybe Hyman Shartz (we're not sure).
The ruins were once a hub of worship of the goddess Ix Chel, deity of the moon, childbirth, fertility, medicine, weaving, and basket-making.
Although some sources state the meaning of her name means "She of the Rainbow," derived from the similar sounding Mayan words Ix and Cheel, her name was Ix Chel; Ix, meaning female, and Ch’el, meaning white or pale face, a name befitting a moon goddess or basket-weaver or basket-case.
She is also identified in the Madrid Codex as "the White Lady." Archaeologists identify her as the lady.
Pre-Columbian Maya women would try to travel to San Gervasio and make offerings at least once in their lives.
In 1560, the Spanish historian, Diego Lopez de Cogolludo, wrote: "The pilgrims arrive at Cozumel for the fulfillment of their vows to offer their sacrifices, to ask help for their needs (hey goddess, please take this wart off my elbow), and for the adoration of their gods." The bishop of Yucatán, Diego de Landa, wrote in 1549 that the Maya "held Cozumel in the same veneration as we have for pilgrimages to Jerusalem and Rome, and and as Mexicans for soccer."
You will find pyramids here and an arch. A park or plaza as well. Re-live the Indiana Jones experience.

Steve's swami helper (not salami, but swami) put this game together.

A swami is an ascetic or yogi who has been initiated into the religious monastic order, founded by some religious teacher.

A salami on the other hand is a spicy cold-cut in the form of a small club used in sandwiches.

Swamis have colorful sheets wrapped around them and wear funny hats on their heads.

Lot more fun playing this game and wandering a few blocks from Hacienda San Miguel to find not just great eateries but awesome shopping.

In my home here in Cancun we have fine stuff purchased at these shops.

Cinco Soles has high level arts and crafts worth the price.

And many great bars!

A short cab or bus ride away is Chankanaab best snorkeling this side of heaven.

And a decent restaurant for lunch too.

And yes, they have lockers.

So close to your Cozumel lodgings you can see flaura and fauna in these transparent waters who's images will remain with you forever.

The parrotfish is turquoise with a pink fin and orange eye with a black pupil.
Sometimes called the sparisoma radians or simply the fish.
An expert color changer, it forms countless blotches, patches, and stripes to match its surroundings.
These fish are not good to eat.
But fun to look at.
If while swimming around the coral reefs you are engulfed in a cloud of indigo-blue fish, you have met the surgeon tangs.
Sometimes they are called doctorfishes due to their scapel-like spine on either side of their body.
They swoop down on the coral eating all the algae.
Also not so good to eat.
For sure not so good as that breakfast served to you right in your lodgings with the kitchenette in Hacienda San Miguel.
The red snapper is sometimes seen in these waters and is excellent to eat.
Called pargo or guachinago or Irving

The photo above to the left and the one to the right I took while snorkeling here in Cozumel.

Near Hacienda San Miguel in Cozumel experience Alebrijes all from local artesans as well as products from local farmers.
In addition to the opportunity for you to purchase natural and organic products from our local vendors you can also enjoy delicious local food, good music and especially this great Cozumel family activity as we aim to promote and support and educate more about our culture through local artesans and farmers.
Alebrijes are brightly colored spanish folk art sculptures of fantastical creatures.
Use of the term, Alebrijes and the very first alebrijes originated with Pedro Linares who was a Riviera Maya Mexican Artisan in the 1930s.
Linares at one time became very ill and bed ridden.
Poor old Linares was unconscious and dreamed of a strange forestlike place in which he saw ,trees, animals rocks and clouds that suddenly began to transform into strange animals that he had never seen before.
Like that thing on Trump's head.
He saw animals such as a donkey with butterfly wings, a rooster with the horns of a bull, a lion with an eagle head, all of which all of them shouted one word, Alebrijes.
After recovering he began to recreate the creatures that he had seen in his dream.
