Something someone said really stuck out to me...the fact that it could be hard transporting things from Cancun to Isla? What do you think?
Also, JenVH, have you decided to have your wedding there?
Anything anyone can share would be great. We also were thinking of Cozumel.
The best thing to do in isla is enjoying the water activities... the blue crystal clear ocean is breathtaking... (I haven't seen water like that in all the other caribbean places that I've been)
So.. here are a couple of recomendations:
1.- SNORKELING Use the "cooperativa" guys (The ones that will offer the services at the dock when you get to the island). This is the "local" way to go... they have this little boats for 8 people approx.. they will take you to snorkel AND they will also take you to a beach, where they will cook the most delicious grill fish ever!... so yummi...., this "tour" will take approx 3-4 hours, and depending on the time of the year it will cost you 20-25 bucks per person...
2.FISHING! (If you like to do this... I will dig in my contact information to find the cel phone from a guy that will take you to fish... AND to snorkel in another awesome reef)
3.-RIDE THE ISLAND - The island is tiny, and it's fun to drive around, you can rent from a bicycle, a scooter or a golf cart..., the South of the island has at the very end a "clif" area, a must place to go and take some photos ..., they have a pathway to walk, it's very pretty...
4.- FOOD- Casa OZ... Best restaurant on the island..."Must to visit".... is on the south side... I'm sure any one at the island can give you directions on how to get there.
And, downtown is full of little restaurants to find all kinds of food.. mexican, seafood, italian.. even arabian..
The island is a place to enjoy the ocean and relax... there's not much "party" going on at night... in downtown there are some bars, but I'm not very familiar with that part...
Hope this helps!!!
