Isla Mujeres 2016 Trip Report-Day 6



This cozy scene drew me as soon as my eyes were open. I had to put on a hoodie and warm my hands by gripping to my coffee cup, but it was perfect none the less.




There was only a mini sunrise from our beautiful balcony. But it was still lovely.


Before we knew it, this was the view from our bedroom window at Villas San Miguel. We have learned to enjoy every moment on Isla because you never know when the sky will change. I think that is a good life lesson too.

S & D came to see our second suite at Villas San Miguel-they were very, very impressed!


We had breakfast with the gang at Bally Hoo with the gang including Margaret & Andy who were leaving with Dona and Sister #3.


I enjoyed an amazing Italian omelette with cheese, sausage, ham inside.


One of our many traditions on Isla is taking pouty pictures of people (and ourselves) as they are waiting to leave on a departing ferry.

And just like that…they were off.



We joined Jean and Rich for church and then went to see a house by Medina Luna.







They told us to come back in an hour so we visited with Bro #3 & L on the beach.


That afternoon we joined them (and eventually Jean and Rich) at the baseball game.


The Isla team had already played and were enjoying lunch in the stands.


They insisted upon sharing their simple meal with us. Another of thousands of reasons why I love the Islanders.

Since it was in the vicinity we walked over to see our friend Hortenzia’s house being built. Then we went and saw Sandra & Tim’s rental. I am not sure that I got the name of it but it was the complex owned by the Gomar family. They loved their stay there.




We arrived home for a Happy Hour coconut/kahlua/banana shake with Bro #3 & L. I walked to the shore for sunset and met Gloria and Huw. They told us that we weren’t expected at Luna d’ Miel until Tuesday and they were right. Keith of Villas San Miguel generously made arrangements for us to stay one more evening .


That evening we were out for dinner at Jardin de Maya with Jan and Bruce. I enjoyed the garlic fish.


I think D ordered the Mole.


Jan or Bruce chose the pulled pork.

A wonderful way to spend a Sunday, feeling more and more like I live on the island.

    In the beach pics, are the posts in the sand the break waters on Playa Norte?

    They posts are on Playa Norte. I don’t know if they were originally a breakwater or a pier. They have looked like this for as long as I have been going to Isla (first visit in 2005).

    We have been going for 3 years, most beach time has been around Burns and the pole things only stuck up maybe 3′!
