Sister #3 Isla Mujeres (Part One)

March17
Each year we gather on Isla Mujeres for a couple of weeks in the sun and sand as an escape from the snow and cold of Winnipeg. What started as a week away for the three sisters has turned into a significantly larger gathering. Other family members and friends have joined us each year and we continue to make great friends with people we meet on the island.Pom Margs
Whenever we meet someone new or are preparing friends for a first time trip, we spend a significant amount of time discussing the food. By now readers of Kathryne’s blog can see that our family’s life revolves around food. However it is not our preoccupation with food that causes our obsession with the food of Isla, it’s the food itself.   Ask anyone who has spent any time on this jewel of an Island and they will tell you that the food is as magnificent as the beaches and as lovely as the people.

 This 5 mile long island is made up of sand and coral and salt water lagoons dominate a big part of its land mass, leaving little room for agriculture. Yesterday our new friends Jeff and Kathy from Minneapolis told us they saw a cow, but I myself have yet to see any animals except beach dogs, street cats, iguana, geckos and the occasional roaster. So you would think that this little island whose main industry is fishing would only be able to boast about delicious fish and seafood, but you would be amazed at the food offered up here.

    On our last trip to Mexico we spent some time on Isla Mujeres at the hotel at the marina. My daughter still talks about it because at the time she was able to drive a golf cart all over the island at 13, snorkelling, drinks at Buhos, the food…all make for a wonderful vacation.
