Isla Mujeres, Mexico
This is another throwback to last November; it’s part II of our trip to Cancun we took for my cousin’s wedding. My mom’s 60th happened to fall a few days after the wedding, and since the whole family (my parents, my sister, Kirk and Chris) would all be in the same locale, convincing us to stay a few more days in the tropics to celebrate her birthday wasn’t a hard task.
After the wedding, we left the Rivera Maya and headed north to Cancun, where we hopped a ferry for the 5-mile trip to Isla Mujeres. My mom couldn’t have picked a better hotel: Cabanas Maria del Mar sat right on Playa Norte, a beach with sand so soft walking across it your feet squeaked. Breakfast was served at a restaurant under a huge thatched roof, its tables in the sand. For three days we hung out in hammocks, stalked lizards, rode around town in a golf cart, and went sailing (boat photos to follow ;). ☼

Primary island transportation: scooters and golf carts.
A cart of our own.
Bummer we didn’t pack our boards.
One of these days, we’ll be out there looking back this way.
