We are frequent visitors to the Q Roo but have never been to Isla, so this year we are staying for 3 nights before heading down the 307.
When it comes to Playa Norte where is the best place for beach loungers as far as price, food and service?
Also any good snorkel spots that are not super busy/commercial/touristy ?
I like simple and chill.
Thanks in advance
My son (11 yrs) and I usually stay on the west coast, easily finding clean, affordable, central rentals, often with a little pool (no a/c nec) for as little as $25/night. We rent from Mexicans who do not use internet ads. Can anyone point us in the direction of some such places on IM? Thanks.
I am a single female on a budget and need a place to stay on Isla.
Feb 26 - March 12, 2014.
I bought two rings at a store owned by an Argentinian woman. She also designed the clothing.Any ideas as to what it might be called. She had a small boutique near the city center
what will the island be like mid october? planning to go in october but dont want a totally deserted experience. i believe it is low season but does that mean there wont be any one to talk to and mingle with. please tell. Thank you.
I see darkened areas in the water around this hotel beach.My question is :Is that reef, or sea grass?
Fishing Isla M.for 4 days in Feb. Coming from Costa Rica. How's nightlife on I.M.? Any chicas or just tourists? Heavy rain or just showers like C.R.? Duty free @ Cancun airport?
Hi from oHIo! Are there piers on the gulf (Calm-side) where there are horizonial steps to enter the water; rather than vertical steps? Handicap (legs) make it impossible to enter from the sand. Love the ocean to swim in,,,,Especially Isla Mujeres.
We will be coming from Cancun for the day, renting a golf cart and doing the Island. How long should we plan to be there in order to get the cart back and catch the ferry?
Are there any food stores in isle de mujeres. We like to cook when on holidays.
Can you take the car ferry for2.00 US or equivalent without taking a car. I do not do well in rough waters on a smaller boat and am leery of the ultramar and would feel better in the bigger boat even though it is slower. The rates I have been seeing for the passengers on the car ferry are around2.00. Can I take this even if I am not bringing a car over. Also, does anyone know the weekly rate of the golf car rentals once over.
Has anyone stayed at the Palace and used their points for a room upgrade and know how many points they charge you for the upgrade.
Full of questions--will be happy to even get one answer.
Hi, does anyone know the name of the jewellery shop in IM that is gold on one side of the street and silver on the other? Thanks for the information.
There is so much info to sift through on here so I thought I would start my own thread and see if anyone has any good advice :)
I would like to surprise my boyfriend for his 50th and bring him to Isla. He will be recovering from a knee operation so minimal walking is best.
I think we would like to be near the beach/town… but you tell me? The island looks so pretty maybe its ok to be away from it a bit and taxi
now and then. if we arent close to town, then maybe we need access to a pool.
A private bungalow/appt would be great too. AC is a must I think. Budget is also a must so I am looking for a great deal in a nice, clean, funky
inexpensive place. Too much to ask?
I am thinking of a week to 10 days in March..
Thank you for reading this.
Any advice appreciated!!
ps- it is soooooo cold in British Columbia!! Sheesh!
Can I go to the Avalon reff club on just a day pass?
We will be coming to visit Isla Mujeres late November 2008 and are wondering if anyone can give us information on two places that we are considering staying at.
1st place is: Casa Ixchel, it's a smaller place about 1 mile from the ferry. It looks and sounds great according to their website.
2nd place is: Casa Maya. They have budget rooms which makes the price very attactive.
If anyone has stayed at any of these two places, we would love to hear what your experience good/or bad.
Also, does anyone have a recomendation for a great place to stay preferably close to North Beach.
Thanks for your help.
Is there a De Beers jewelry store in Isla Mujeres?
What bus do I take to get to Gran Puerto to catch the Ferry to Isla Mujueres how much does it cost and how long to get there from hotel near the Hilton
we with my wife (both around age 30)are coming to Cancun on the 29 of December. As we would like to spend the New Year Eve out of the Cancun, could you recomend any other nice place/town, island? We are thinking about Isla Mujeres or Tulum. I am just wondering wonn't it be too quite for example in Isla Mujeres? But from the other hand we also do not want to stay in the chaos Cancun.
All suggestions and recommendations are welcome.

Is it possible to get from Isla Mujeres to Gran Puerto earlier than the earliest scheduled ferry? Are there "for hire" water taxis? What would the cost be?
Thanks for your help.
My wife and I will be staying with you from Oct 28th to Nov 3. I want to know what are the best and most cost effective ways to transfer from the Cancun airport to the ferry, and from the ferry to your club.
Looking for good airfare and a reasonable hotel with pool, near north beach. Any suggestions. Have not been to Isla Mejeres before. Looks great.
1. What are current departure times for car ferry from Puerto Sam to Isla Mujeres(on Wednesday)?
2. What are current departure times for car ferry from Isla Mujeres to Puerto Sam(on Sunday)?
We are planning to stay at Elements this february. We've been asked to send a deposit directly to a US bank to the account of Ursula DiLorenzo. This seems a little unusual and just wanted to check that you were asked to something similar and that it worked out
We have traveled to Playa on a number of occasions, mostly staying at Royal Hideaway and, last yearm at Secrets Capri (RH was closed). We will be returning to Secrets in Feb but would like to split the trip to 4 or 5 days there and perhaps 3 or 4 days in Isla Mujeres at one of the more upscale properties
What are the reefs like there. I tried to buy tickets to Garrafon and they said that the park was closed
My fiance and I would like to honeymoon at Villa Rolandi on Isla de Mujeres, from early to mid July, 2006. Is this too risky in terms of hurricane risk?
Would appreciate feedback!

Most of all i need pictures of the present terminal and the surroundings. I have also some more detailed questions about isla.
If there is anybody that is that is willing to help me, i wait for the anwser.
Greetings from Poland!!!
I will be returning to Isla Mujeres in March. Just Curious if anyone has any information or pictures of the island and the rebuilding. Most importantly, how are the beaches?
Has anyone ever seen or stayed in the two bedroom cottage at Hotel Roca Mar? Since we are traveling with our 15 year old daughter we booked this for April rather than individual rooms at the hotel but there was no detail about it or pictures. I am hoping that it is clean and pleasant, as it sounds like the rest of the hotel is. Would love to hear any information about it.
Has the CANCUN, COZUMEL, RIVIERA MAYA AREA RETURNED WELL ENOUGH FOR US TOURISTS TO RETURN?
