We have an arrangement with two independent providers of services that will make your stay memorable. Chango Villa receives no commissions or fees for providing these services, but because of our own positive experiences, we feel very comfortable making these introductions. Within 24-48 hours of your arrival at Chango Villa, these partners will visit you to introduce themselves and understand your possible needs if any. This may include an introductory scuba course in the pool (PADI Dive Master), scuba diving in the amazing Cozumel Reef System, concierge services to help you make reservations (dinner, spa service, tours, etc.), or general information you may require when on the island. Prior to your arrival, you will be sent contact information for these individuals in the event you want to plan early.
After so many requests from previous guests, we are happy to say that we are now renting snorkel equipment at the villa. This is being done to provide a more cost effective and convenient solution. New snorkel equipment purchased in Cozumel or the U.S. can run close to $100/person not including airline baggage fees. Likewise, beach clubs renting snorkel equipment typically charge $30/person/day. Our solution is more cost effective and simple. Guests of the villa can rent snorkel equipment for $20/person/week when a release/responsibility form is signed on your arrival. The program villa will provide up to 16 sets of snorkel equipment in the following sizes: Adult Men, Adult Women, and Children. You can use this gear in front of the villa or feel free to take it anywhere on the island that allows snorkeling.
If you want our staff to shop for you and have your kitchen stocked with beverages or other provisions, then you simply pay for the cost of the items, plus a 20% shopping fee.
