... SWIM!" So Jaime and I did. (He was on the other side of the Whale Shark (I think, I could not see him due to the giant you know, Whale Shark between us). So there we were. Swimming alongside a Whale Shark. We had life jackets on and were just on the surface. But the Whale Shark was too, and the three of us just swam alongside each other like it was no thing. I could even look into its eye. Well, the Whale Shark thought it was no thing, ...
... where if you payed a credit to the room they would match it so we opted to put 100 dollars on meaning we had 200 dollars to spend in the hotel at the bars and restaurants. After half day of sun bathing we got ready and headed out, all the main nightlife was on our doorstep. We went to a mexican restaurant for a burrito which was recommend to us! Great food just of the strip. We then went around ...
... and after two hours of torture, returned them. we did what seemed to be the only plausible activity in this heat: lying on the beach. And this is exactly all that happend for the rest of the day. When we sat back on the ferry to the mainland, we welcomed the kind Breeze, and even if the day was too hot for the planned bikeride, we still have been very happy about the change of scenery and the quality time ...
... people want you to believe is the country of Mexico. I walk with Arturo to his cab and see him off for his day.
I returned to the apt for a shower and to get ready for my day of exploration. Only one problem, the apt has run out of water and Arturo had to make a phone call to let some one know we need more. Don't usually see this happen in the U.S. and when it did begin to work again, I had another problem.... How to get hot water?!?!? I tried a lot ...

Came out of the Conference center this morning (into soggy air--VERY humid today), and, about ten feet from the door, I encountered one of the big iguanas that others have reported seeing.

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.
