Isla Mujeres La Vida es Dulce – Life is Sweet

June26

 Another installment of Sister #3’s March Isla adventure:

“This year on isla I have eaten more dessert than is typical for me.  Traveling with a woman with a sweet tooth, who often opted for a much lighter meal in order to indulge in dessert, meant I was obliged to follow her lead. 

I discovered revisited some sweet treats that I have tried before and (unfortunately) found event more to tempt me on future trips to Isla. 

 

Marquesitas 

Imagine a waffle cone rolled like a burrito and stuffed with banana or sweet cheese and your choice of caramel sauce, dulce de leche or nutella.  Available at carts along Rueda Medina after 1:00 every afternoon for only 20 pesos! Yum.

Great music, lots of action on the main drag and delicious dessert, what could be better? The Pastel de Chocolate was huge, moist and had just enough salt to highlighe the chocolate.  My friend had the Plantanos Flameados which we didn’t realize came with a table side show.  Brandy and banana liqueur are flamed with sugar and cream then your banana is cooked in the sauce and finished with ice cream.  Too sweet for me, but perfect for my dear friend. 

 

Paletas tuggui 

Because I don’t love “overly- sweet” sweets, the homemade lime popsicles on Isla are a perfect treat for me.  The tangy citrus is the perfect refresher on a hot day.”

Kath’s quote: “Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one can possibly want and hold.”-Judith Olney
