Isla Mujeres

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be taking our two college age kids to Isla Mujeres at the end of month. We've rented a house on the "Airport Strip/Carribean Side" and we'll be there a month.

I'm looking for just about any advice you have.

What I have heard is that it makes sense to stop and shop for food in Cancun before taking the ferry to the Island. A friend of mine who has traveled to the island says that it is not necessary and that the prices on the island and in Cancun are the same anyway. Do you agree?

Another friend of mine who has NOT been to the island, said, by no means drink the water or brush your teeth in it and don't buy food from street vendors. Do you agree?

Are there restaurants you especially enjoyed? Can you recommend a place to snorkel for the inexperienced and nervous? What should we careful NOT to miss?

This may sound really lame, but when we go to the beaches, probably using a cab, what should we take with us besides towels and sunscreen?

Is it an island where the women are modest in dress? Meaning, should I tell my eighteen year old daughter to leave the spaghetti strap teen shirts behind?

Thank you!
