Asia Caribe & Other Culinary Delights On Isla Mujeres

DSC08886~

  So you are in MEXICO, and there you are eating Asian and Caribbean and Italian and French food!!? Not Mexican food, but exotic foods from all over the world. What’s up with that? You’re in Mexico. Oh sure, there are traditional Mexican restaurants – good ones too, and we’re not complaining at all, but it gets tiresome eating the same food (Mexican) all the time. Aren’t we spoiled!.   The truth is, Isla Mujeres is now more of an adventure in international foods, than the quaint little Mexican island it used to be years ago. But what a cool … More…

Of Accidental Heroes

DSC08953

  One never knows when an opportunity may come along to be a hero. It is never planned, and probably the last thing on your mind at the time.   My friend, G, loves to snorkel and spent many an afternoon at the far end of the lagoon at the North Beach in the deeper water where the fish and other sea creatures are thick and flourishing. The lagoon is the perfect place to snorkel because the water is so clear and it’s shallow a long way out until you get near the rocks and the bridge.   One morning … More…

Little Boy Gets Buried in Sand

DSC08853~

  One evening on Isla Mujeres, Mexico, the sunset was particularly beautiful. We walked out onto the beach, closer to the water, to take a few colourful sunset photos. A Mexican man and his four children were laughing and playing beside a table and chairs. I asked if I might sit on one of the chairs to take some photos, and they said, yes, of course. As I was taking sunset photos, I couldn’t help but take a few photos of this family having so much fun. They were digging a deep hole in the sand, then the youngest boy … More…

Which Beach Would You Choose?

DSC08984 Little Girl Copy

  Isla Mujeres is an island surrounded by beaches and depending on the weather, you can choose the best beach. Having a choice of 4 unique beaches is really quite fun, and the best ones are all within walking distance of the North third of the island.   If it is very windy, you can go to the calm West side of the island, facing Cancun, where it is protected by the mainland. You can get a reasonably priced massage here too.   Cancun across the water at dusk…   If it is just a little breezy, The North Beach (Playa Norte) on … More…

Take A Walk On The Wild Side

DSC08596~

  Isla Mujeres, Mexico, has a wild side, a very wild side. In fact, it has two wild sides.   It’s worthwhile to rent a golf cart and drive the length of the 7 km island.   Along the way, you will find Chedrauil, the big grocery store, a village, the natural bush land of the island, treed roads, a turtle farm, a dolphin experience, roadside food and seashell crafts.    As the Southern tip of the island narrows you can see both sides of the island at once and it is quite spectacular.   Usually there is a Mayan … More…

The Golf Cart Pole Dance (and Other Golf Cart Disasters)

DSC09106

  The day after we arrived at Isla Mujeres (Island of Women), a tiny island off the coast of Mexico near Cancun, we were all set to enjoy a lovely afternoon at the gorgeous North Beach, when the rain started. A downpour filled the streets to overflowing within a short time, climbing over the sidewalk opposite our hotel. So much for our first beach day.   The next day we started looking for a golf cart to rent and were barraged with salesman trying to convince us that they had the best carts for the best prices and beckoning us to … More…
