A Personal Note from Sherri "Season's Greetings & Holiday Wishes !"
Sherri Davis - Owner/Operator CozumelInsiderIt’s incredible to realize but yet another Holiday Season is upon us! I managed to get back to Texas for a few weeks just before Thanksgiving so now my mother will come here for the next few holiday weeks. In preparation for her arrival shortly, I’ve been frantically trying to decorate the place a bit for the festive weeks ahead. I must tell you that it’s a real challenge to try to create that “winter wonderland” feeling when one is barefoot and sweating bullets whilst dragging out the ornaments!
Nonetheless ~ I forge ahead!

The first thing that must be done of course is to actually locate the accumulation of said decorations. So I manage to squeeze through the bodega and find the stuff underneath this season’s “just in case” hurricane prep materials. As I reach for the boxes and lift them over my head to pass them out the door to some one, I’m lecturing myself over having accumulated so much junk in the bodega this past year. Then I remember to be thankful that no storms came our way and none of this stuff had to be used. Of course the cardboard boxes barely make it out of my hands before starting to crumble into a million pieces. Hmmmm….tropical mold ~ mildew. Interesting eaters they are...perhaps the same organisms eating oil spills these days! Plastic crates and climate control….good things ~ when you have access to them!

I then began to sort through this little pile of cardboard covered rubble that just a few months ago was holiday decorations worthy of saving. After a few minutes of poking around amongst unidentifiable green and red stuff, I’m thinking I’m better off just grabbing the strings of lights and hauling the rest to the garbage. So I did just that and created quite a ruckus on the street of course because anytime a neighbor sees anything shiny or glittery sticking out of a garbage sack ~ it’s fair game!

Later that night I began trying in earnest to decorate the house for my mom's arrival. I put a pot of water on the stove to boil and filled it with cinnamon sticks. I got out some holiday candles and lit those as well trying to fill the air with a holiday smell to inspire me. I hung some garland, laid out placemats, put holiday hand towels in the bathrooms and trimmed a miniature tree to set on my kitchen bar. Things were moving right along now and the cinnamon was beginning to boil. Hmmmmm….those lights I salvaged ~ I could use those wrapped amongst the garland on the stairway banister. So I go over and begin to intertwine the lights with the garland. I was so excited as I completed the first strand of lights that I just had to plug them in and see how it looked. Even though I just purchased these lights last year, over half the lights wouldn’t even come on! The annoying part was that those lights not burning were in an organized pattern on the string. So it was not a general failure or operator error but instead simply poor quality merchandise. As I unplugged the string and began untangling it from the garland, that big safety tag they stick on the cord drug through my hand and I flipped it over. Dang. Made in Cheena. Figures!

Guess I’ll just get out more candles and wear red flip flops. ?Is that enough holiday spirit, you think?!
As we all give thanks this season, what better place to spend the holidays than right here in Cozumel ~ getting to know the island, its culture and all the wonderful people who call the island home. So come on down ~ we are all getting ready and waiting for you! And if you don't yet have a place to stay ~ I would love to have you with us at my
IslaMar Villas this winter season!

I will leave you with the authentic sound of the holiday season in Mexico ~ Mariachi style! Here's wishing each one of you a very "Merri-Achi Christmas" from one of my favorites ~ Mariachi Sol de Mexico! Listen all the way to the end for Silent Night in Spanish! If this doesn’t put you in the holiday spirit and aching for a trip to Cozumel, I just don’t know what will!!

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

Hello my name is Brent C. and I did the Turtle Observation & Release on June 27th. I can honestly not put into words how great and breathtaking the whole experience was! it has always been a dream of mine to watch turtles nest up close and personal but you guys topped that dream and did even better! I almost cried tears of joy when i found out I got to get up close and help remove the turtle eggs as she was laying them! I plan on becoming a marine biologist one day and this whole experience has pushed me farther into my passion for marine biology! I can not say thank you enough! Also cant forget the helpful crew of young men and women that helped us along the night and where ever so kind! Here is a picture of the green sea turtle I named April after she had laid her eggs! Thanks and God Bless Brent C ~ USA

Derrick and I had a great time. We got our fill of diving. On the 4th day in fact, I was so tuckered out, I didn't think I would make it, but we persevered and did all 15 tanks of your ISLAMAR/DIVE PARADISE Dive Package B! The break in the sun was exactly what the doctor ordered…..rest assured, you have my business in the future and I'm glad to have been lucky enough to have found someone who is renowned for their business acumen and operates with such respected integrity in the community. Thanks again for everything that you did Sherri! R. Dugan ~ Plano, TX

Thank you so much for all your help! We took you tour to Chitchen-Itza in june. We were the couple that missed the tour because we did not get the wake up call. Because you went the extra mile with us (by finding us a tour operator that would honor our voucher the next day) I am extremely greatful. it certainly made our vacation. I will DEFINITELY recommend your website COZUMELINSIDER to anybody who will listen. thanks again! F. Escobar ~ not given

A big thanks to COZUMELINSIDER for all your help booking my two trips! The Eagle Ray 3 reef snorkel was fantastic! It was a small group tour of 8 people with very very great personal service. I highly recommend this tour to all. My other tour was a tour of a lifetime, the Whale shark tour with Gamma Experience It was really something being in the water with a 50-60 foot whale shark! A couple restaurants I highly recommend are La lobsteria and especially Tony Romes. I highly recommend Cozumelinsider to all in booking tours as they picked great small tour groups for me!
