Bebé and I spent the weekend of my birthday on Isla Mujeres and brought along my friend and her daughter. I had never stayed on the southern end of the island before, and wow, what a treat! I love staying on North Beach but the south end is even more laid back.
We arrived late Friday afternoon and after dropping our bags at the condo, we headed to Chedraui for groceries. We woke up the next morning to a beautiful, sunny day.
We stayed at Isla 33, a brand new condominum complex/resort. It’s not even finished yet!
Check out the view from the pool! (Insert your feet here.)
After breakfast we took a short walk on the path that was recently constructed along the water. The views are spectacular!
To the right…
All the kids really wanted to do want get to the pool ASAP, but we convinced them to pose for a few pictures.
Then finally Bebé could jump in! (Who am I kidding? He is so not a baby anymore. 🙁 )
I’m sure it will come as no surprise that we spent most of the day at the pool. After naptime (for all four of us) we headed downtown for my official birthday dinner at Rolandi’s. I never tire of their bread, lasagna, and outdoor seating where you can witness all the action on Hidalgo.
The central plaza was decorated for Mexican Independence Day.
The next day there was more pool time and then we headed downtown to grab a cart and take a drive around the island. Both kids fell asleep!
A ride around Isla isn’t complete without this shot…
When I went to return the cart I took a few shots on my way to the ferry. I could spend hours doing nothing but taking pictures (and drinking cerveza) on Isla.
I doubt we will ever tire of visiting this little slice of paradise.
