On/Off the island trip report day 15

Saying goodbye to Isla…up at 5 a.m….watching the sunrise. If you have been here before, you know exactly what I am thinking….

We were going to take the 9:00 ferry, but were up so early that we ended up on the 8:30. Sat at Puerto Juarez, enjoying our last few minutes of warm weather and sunshine.

Our driver picked us up right on time (We used CARM (Cancun and Riviera Maya) for our transfer. Not one problem. Great service, drivers, etc.)

Headed to the Cancun airport and looked at the line for United, and thanked God that I am a United MileagePlus member and was able to skip that line. There were at least 100 people in that line, it was nearly out the door. Flight left right on time, and before we knew it, we were in freezing- cold –snowstorm- on- the- way Chicago. We were spending the evening at the Mariott, with a flight home in the morning. I get an email around 5pm that says my flight is cancelled for the next day and the booked me for the day after. Wait, what? Oh NO! So I call United and after 2 agents and an hour on hold I get on a flight for that evening-(different city, but closer to home)! Checked out of the Mariott after a few hours, (wonder what they were thinking-ha ha) and headed home.

Already missing Isla, sitting in a snowstorm…………..planning already for our return!!!!

Karsh, Thanks for the great trip reports, I've enjoyed each one. You really brought the Isla feel to all of us here on TA. I think you should have stayed an additional week though. We have another big storm rolling in this weekend and your reports have been a great way to warm up between trips out to the driveway to shovel the snow.

Last time I left Isla I had to spend night in Seattle airport because of delays but I just kept going over my Isla pictures and boring everyone who was in the airport at Starbucks to look at my pictures. I am sure the people had stories to tell of the crazy lady at Starbucks but I aso bet they googled Isla Mujeres out of curiosity.

I've often fantasized about missing my flight home and having to remain on Isla Mujeres forever. And I'm pretty sure I'm not alone!
