We had the benefit of all of the reviews written by all of the travelers before us about Casita de Maya, we chose it because of those reviews. But our experience exceeded the high expectations we already had! Here are a few of the things that were special:
-- In a small cozy place like this, the other guests are an important part of the enjoyment. Reading all of the reviews you can tell that CdM attracts a certain type of traveler/vacationer. What really happens is that you can be assured of spending time around the Casita with like-minded folks in interesting discussion and lots of laughs. Our group included two college professors and a later-in-life college student. With our own college student and recent grad, and Erik on the staff just finishing first semester freshman year at university in Cozumel - there were lively talks and lots of information trading. I'm sure others have similar bonding experiences.
-- Everyone acknowledges that Diego and his cooking are a big part of the joy of staying at Casita, but be sure to let him fix you both his big lobster dinner (whenever the lobstermen come by w/fresh ones) and his delicious breakfasts. You can't get that Yucatan-style breakfast sandwich or the amazing lobster dipping sauce anywhere else.
-- Take Dan's advice about everything, he always gives lots of options and directs you to the most local and colorful places. He won't steer you wrong no matter what.
-- Walk both to the waterfront and into 'town' from Casita. You quickly find yourself engaged and delighted by the people and places that are the real Cozumel, away from the cruise ship ports.
Casita de Maya is a very lovely small hotel - almost like having your own house - with fantastic service that goes beyond what you'd get anywhere else and a fount of information in Dan and his staff, as well as the best food on the island at Diego's around the corner.
And let's not forget Trixie and Chiquis, the Casita mascots.
