The Banana House is a private 3BR, 2.5 bath country home with 3400 sq. feet of living area. Located near the historic village of El Cedral, the Banana House is just a 4-minute walk to the center of Cedral Village, approximately 12.5 miles south of San Miguel (Cozumel's main town).
The Banana House is an ideal location for divers, nature and beach lovers. Nestled on the edge of the jungle, this tropical setting offers the serenity of country living, plus proximity to some of Cozumel's most beautiful beaches and best dive sites.
For divers staying at Cedral there are at least two options. Most dive operators using small boats can do a wade out pick up service from Alberto’s Restaurant only two kilometers (1 mile) away in front of the road going to El Cedral. Other dive operators with larger boats can pick up at Caleta/Fonatur marina. Please check with your dive operator.
Cedral is less than two kilometer (1 mi.) from the main coastal highway where there are a number of beach clubs and restaurants and close proximity to all the famous reefs such as Palancar and Columbia for diving on the south west side of the island.
