Private Paradise is located on a beautiful and safe tropical island in the Caribbean that enjoys tremendous sunshine and year-round average temperatures in the 80’s. A true paradise in the middle of the sea Cozumel is characterized by white sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets and is world famous for its coral reefs. It is an adventure and relaxation destination where all kinds of activities are carried out in impressive natural settings that are breathtaking.
Cozumel has its own international airport and is just a 30-minute ferry ride from the popular tourist city of Playa Del Carmen in the Mexican Riviera Maya and a 30-minute cab ride from there to the larger Cancun International Airport. Guests can choose to fly into either airport and our concierge will be happy to arrange your transportation.
Flights to the Cozumel International Airport arrive from airlines from the United States, Canada, Mexico and Spain; as well as light planes or helicopters that leave the Playa del Carmen Aerodrome. Currently there are direct flights available from Miami, Houston, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta, Charlotte, Detroit, Minneapolis, Montreal and Toronto; from Madrid, Spain, as well as direct flights from Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, as well as the Cancun - Cozumel airlift.
The taxi and transport unions are very strong in Cozumel so while we can not pick guests up from the airport and transfers are not included in your stay, we are happy to arrange your transportation with best carriers.
The best part about Cozumel compared to other popular tourist destinations in Mexico is that it does has a very very low crime rate because it is not attached to the mainland. Criminals shy away from it because they can’t simply drive away and would have to wait for a ferry to make an escape.
The island is anchored by proud natives who make a very good living here thanks to all the cruise ships that come. Locals value the island as a wonderful gift that was handed down to them. They keep the streets and sidewalks impeccably clean (I often say as clean as Disney World honestly) and patrol to prevent pan-handling and petty theft. You will be hard pressed to find a cigarette butt on the main streets or anyone begging for money here.
Cozumel also has the Guardian Angels which is the equivalent of free AAA road service. They continuously drive around the island in a fleet of pickup trucks to help tourist out at no charge who may have broken down on a scooter or need assistance getting back to their hotel, villa or cruise ship for any reason.
Private Paradise is not only located ocean front on the Caribbean but our shoreline is in the national marine park! This is the crown-jewels of the entire Mexican Riviera, where the water is crystal clear, the best snorkeling and diving takes place and the water colors look like an ever-changing kaleidoscope of blues.
The property is located on a point just seven minutes from town where the land rises up on a theater seating like incline from the ocean to a one of the highest points on the island. This allowed us to build several buildings and entertainment areas that have higher and higher vantage points so our guests can enjoy jaw-dropping views from more areas.
