News from Cozumel

by zora on June 4, 2006

Sol Cabanas del Caribe (p. 135) is closed. It got pretty battered by Hurricane Wilma, apparently, and since it was an older resort, it probably wasn’t worth fixing up.

Palapas Amaranto (p. 134) has a new website,, which also gets you info for Tamarindo B&B (p. 135), under the same ownership. (And to clarify, at Tamarindo, all guests have access to the kitchen, not just two of the rooms.)

Additionally, you can now contact each place via the following mobile phone numbers:

01-987/800-5571 (in Mexico)
+44-987/800-5571 (from outside the country)

01-987/112-4111 (in Mexico)
+44-987/112-4111 (from outside)

Because Amaranto is unhosted (meaning there isn’t someone there around the clock), you should call before you arrive, to make sure someone is there to meet you with keys.

The owners of Tamarindo and Amaranto have split…as have the ownership of the bandbs…Tamarindo remains with Elaine and Amaranto with her husband. That means for reservations at either place you must contact them separately. Also seems that the new website for the places is no longer in service.

I wanted to stay for a month in January 2008 and contacted the Tamarindo but to reserve the room they wanted 70% of the month’s cost to book it. I told them I couldn’t give nearly $1,000 to someone I don’t know and also 6 months in advance. She wrote back and said I understand and that was that.
