TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Las Palmas Isla Mujeres
We had just left Cancun from a horrid experience & were looking for a new place to stay. We told Safari, the owner, everything that happened in Cancun. EVERYTHING. She was so apologetic and immediately set us up in a King room - and told us we would always be welcome and safe there. We've gone back every year since April 2010. It's no frills, clean, safe and perfect.
Safari (daughter), Kate (Mom) & baby Dania (granddaughter) are three Canadian women owners of this small- hostel like stay near Playa Norte. Safari has been coming to Isla as a baby herself with her mom & they decided to invest in an existing business in 2009.

... swim. To get ready, we had to sit with one leg outside the boat, and one leg inside and when they said jump, you had to jump. Right in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. Alongside a 15 foot long Whale Shark. And we did.
When it came time for Jaime and I to do our first jump (we were able to do 3) we were revved up and ready. There was a huge Whale Shark parallel to our boat heading the opposite direction. The captain yelled "Jump!" and ...
... rain the entire time! The south of the island looked a lot like the north of Tas, except it was hot haha. We also sussed out the scuba diving at sea hawk divers- the good spots are at the reef (machones) and the sleeping shark cave- where apparently bull sharks sleep! For dinner we went to a Mexican restaurant where we got 3 tacos and 2 beers for $AUD6.90! Today we ...
... unsere Fahrräder nicht mehr aushalten und haben sie deshalb nach immerhin zwei Stunden Tortur zurückgebracht. Wir taten, was uns bei dieser Hitze als einzig legitime Aktivität erschien: am Strand faulenzen. Das war dann auch das Einzige, was wir den restlichen Tag machten. Als wir auf der Fähre zurück zum Festland sassen, genossen wir die kühle Brise und auch wenn der Tag viel zu ...
... the beach club, which as it turns out is just an affiliated club called ‘City’ or something. Expecting to get treated to some towels and at least a beach chair around the pool we get neither and are even asked to pay a 50 peso (4 bucks or something) cover charge.
‘What does that include..?’ I ask. Just entry evidently. And the place has a few grotty pools and that whole ‘closed-for-summer’ look. But we do get a nice wrist band to indicate ...
... Great music, great teacher and a great night with some lovely new Mexican friends!
First day at work today. Arrived just before midday and started conversation classes straight away. Which were good fun, and not stressful at all. Little preparation is needed as the classes are around 20-30 minutes and can be about anything. This involves having no more than 8 Mexicans sat around a table talking with me, simple :) It is good fun, and I know how it ...
