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.

... given up at this point, but Ken said he hadn't come all this ****ing (Betty might be reading this and would never believe that her little boy might use profanities) way to turn back before I'd seen my ****ing stingrays!
So I set off with my bowl of magnificently prepared soy chunks. I got about a metre and my bowl was overturned by a wave. The chunks floated off like a brigade of tiny *****. Sorry Claire, I forgot to download the ...
... was I swam closer to get a better look (and luckily and amazing picture) and Jaime swam away from it. It eventually swam away too. The first thought that popped into Jaime's head was how the Crocodile Hunter died from a Ray, that is why he swam away. But as a disclaimer, Manta's are different and cannot hurt you like the Sting Rays can. So we were in no danger. Just a little odd, because our guides did not mention it was possible to come ...
Today we just thought we would have a quiet day and save some money. We had breakfast and then spent the day by the pool, swimming, enjoying the sun and doing lots of study and planning for the next few weeks. Bobbie sorted out plans for tomorrow when we go to Isla Mujeres, I looked for a hotel to stay at for a few nights in Cancun hotel zone and then when we head to Playa del Carmen and also searched many web sites for the cheapest flights ...
... up at 715am, I was in a full tour bus heading west for 3 hours or so. We stopped at a Cenote (below ground watering hole) where some swam in the freezing waters and then had a traditional lunch. Finally arriving at the ruins at 230pm for a guided tour and then an hr of free time. The main pyramid has been extensively restored on the south side and looks a bit fake up close, but nonetheless inspiring to think that a thousand years ago a civilisation existed here based on ...
... could take our own drinks so it was pretty cheap. It was a fun way to spend the afternoon. I beat one of the Irish guys in a swimming race. He probably would have been faster if he drank all the water and then ran across. That night we all went to a bar called Seņor Frogs for a foam party. Man what a night. Easily our favourite night out of the trip so far. We had all you could drink so made the most of the cocktails. The bar had a waterslide that I went on. I climbed up the ...
