I had no idea what to expect from Isla Mujeres, 20 minutes off the shores of Cancun. Would it have the same party atmosphere? Would it be more of a hippy island? The drive from the port to the remote side of the island is also confusing - private properties, little shops, little guest houses... Then suddenly, we pulled on... More

I can't remember if I have wrote a review for Captain Dulche's but it's so great I give 5 star again. Quiet, clean, SPOTLESS to be exact, beautiful and good food. I LOVE it here.
