ISLA MUJERES, MEXICO: “ISLAND OF WOMEN” 1

So, hopping on the R1 bus from Playa Delfines away from the hotel district, takes you to Porto Juarez where you can catch the ferry to Isla Mujeres. The cost is $140 pesos (a little over $10 usd) round trip. It takes about 20 minutes and there’s a ferry leaving about every half hour.

ImageMost people when visiting this tiny island, hire motorbikes or golf carts. I hired a motorbike for $250 pesos for half a day, basically. The rental place is directly across from the port exit, so you can’t miss it.

I took a quick trip over to Isla Mujeres today, hired a motorbike, explored the tiny island, and stopped at an awesome place called Polo’s Mango Cafe. Excellent menu, all Caribbean-style…authentic. Great, friendly service. Wifi. Fresh and clean. Vibrant colors. Good music.
