A Personal Note from Sherri "Lovely Swallows of Low Season"
Well from my standpoint, Spring Break and April were just a big blur as we have been super busy and the weather has been absolutely fantastic here on the island! The Spring rains have not yet begun and it’s not been too terribly hot yet either so in between villa guests and beach visitors we’ve been able to get a good many projects completed. Here at the beach, we’re finishing up all of our Spring cleaning now and doing our pre-hurricane season prep work so I’m about to kick back and chug some champagne from my balcony in celebration of another close to a wonderful high season! I know…I should support the local economy and drink Mexican beer but sometimes it’s just not a beer day!
You know lots of folks are here in the winter months and for obvious reasons ~ it’s a great time to be in Cozumel so as to escape the cold weather. But many are sort of “put off” by the sheer volume of tourists we have now on the island during high season. If that applies to you, then I urge you to consider planning a trip to Cozumel during one of our beautiful “off season” months. As an example, this month of May the number of cruise ships arriving to the island is only one third of the high season volume so it’s as if there’s literally no one here! It may be too late to plan a quick Mother’s Day getaway but you still have time to make it for Memorial Day! Give it a try ~ you might be surprised at how the slower, laid back pace of “low season” appeals to you!
While you consider that vacation option, I’ll leave you with this video of a wonderful sighting of Cozumel Swallows that I had last week. Seems you can change the name of the island to “Island Of Peace” or “Home Port” or whatever to try to be “trendy” or gain more tourism but really the Maya got it right the first time. Cozumel is…and always will be… the Island of Swallows and wow ~ how incredibly lovely they are!
Dear Sherri, Our family met you just a week ago when we arrived in Cozumel, a little overwhelmed and in need of a hotel. You gave us great suggestions and we had a lovely week at Hotel Cozumel. I wanted to write and thank you for all your time and consideration. We also followed your beach suggestions and had wonderful snorkeling. Thank you, Sherri, for taking the time with us. And thank you for your wonderful website. We wish you the very best in the New Year and always. Foley Family ~ Minnesota
En mi opinion, Josefina es una asombrosa profesora. Pienso que si necesitas aprender Espanol, ve a ver a Josefina!! Adios! Jana Helbach ~ Not Given
We cannot begin to express our thanks to Sherri and the staff at IslaMar Villas for our wonderful 11-night stay. This was our third time staying at IslaMar Villas and for us it's the only place to stay in Cozumel. It has truly become our home away from home. We love the apartments, the courtyard and pool, and the warm and friendly neighborhood.
We also used "COZUMELINSIDER" to book our car rental with Avis. It went very smoothly and you guys also helped us trade in our little Chevy Pop for something a little bigger.
A big THANK YOU to Sherri for introducing us to a wonderful private driver on the mainland and for arranging our excursion to Playa del Carmen, Tulum, and Akumal. We were so happy that we decided to finally venture off the island and go to the mainland to see the ruins. The driver Sherri arranged for us was extremely friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we saw things we wouldn't have even known about had we taken the car ferry and driven on our own. To anyone looking for a private tour of places on the mainland, we highly recommend asking Sherri to arrange it for you. It was well worth it!
Thank you again, Sherri! Your kindness and warm hospitality makes us choose IslaMar Villas and your services over and over again. R & M Browning ~ Superior, CO
Sherri and her staff did everything under the sun to help us get on one of their shore excursions. Phone calls and emails were promptly acknowledged and answered cheerfully and professionally. These are "home" folks; no need to worry about language or accents getting in the way of success. Book with confidence, and have fun! J Meyers ~ San Antonio, Texas
Thank you so much!!! Thank you for arranging the dolphin encounter for my family!!! Even in the aftermath of Hurricane Emily, Cozumel Insider came through with flying colors --- yall are perfect... A. Sikes ~ Frankston, TX USA
