Island Life – Isla Mujeres

We arrived to the stunning turquoise waters of Isla Mujeres, a short 15 minute ferry from Cancun’s Puerto Juarez (145 pesos/$10). Nea insisting we catch the bus to the port instead of a taxi. Which would have been fine, other than the “Beware of Crocodiles” signs along the 2km walk from the bus stop to the harbour.  Isla Mujeres is paradise! I feel like on this trip I’m going to say that ALOT but the Caribbean really is one of the clearest, bluest, most inviting and serene waters I’ve ever seen.  I’ve lived on Rottnest Island,  hit the reef in Cairns, explored the Mediterranean and I live in Bali, but The Caribbean,  wow it is blue!  We were based at Hostel Pocna. The must stay hostel on the island with nightly entertainment, live bands, free yoga and comfortable, cheap dorms and private rooms. We had one night in each. Dorms were clean and cool and from either room, we couldn’t hear the party happening out in the beach bar.  Hammocks strewn all over the place and an eclectic mix of inhabitants from Hector, the middle aged, nomadic mexican muso to the freshly graduated debut explorer Catherine from Glasgow.
