Isla Mujeres Playa Norte

Natalie@nearafar on Twitter – is asking a travel question every Wednesday, and this week was ‘What’s your favourite island?’.  Gary and I visited Isla Mujeres with my Dad in 2004, and it’s remained high on our ‘must return to’ list.  We spent our day at the Turtle Farm, visiting sea turtles, at Playa Tiburón for a beer or two and then on to the Playa Norte for some swimming.  Just a 20 minute ferry ride from Cancun, it feels like a world away, relaxed and laid back, with bike and golf carts as common as cars.  Here’s a few photos from the Isle of Women:
