“If paradise on earth exists,then this is it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2005

Just a twenty minute ferry ride from Cancun is where paradise is located.Beautiful beaches,great and diverse seafood and other foods are just one feature.The low prices and the friendliness of the people in a safe and caring atmosphere stands this island apart from all others.I stayed at the Poc Na Hostel $9 u.s.daily including a (served to you)continental breakfast.Other food all at reasonable prices is served through dinner hour.The perfect location partially on a sand beach is awesome.On the main street-sidewalk cafe's line both sides where live music abounds.Safe and secure at any hour and a most helpful population of locals as well as returning tourists make this a truly treasure of an island.I shall be returning real soon.
P.S.-There are a number of hotels starting at about $17 U.S. to be had and dining at any and every price.Happy hours and freebees.

Loved it! Just a short walk to the beach! Clean, friendly and mellow, we had a great time there, and next time we're on Isla Mujeres, we're staying longer!

Had a terrible, hot, sleepless night in this hostel--2 ceiling fans in 1 dorm with 4 bunk beds--no air circulation. About 20+ people sharing 2 toilets and 2 showers that worked. Good beach bar, granted, but overall not at all impressed by what I had been told was "the place to be". Packed up and went to stay down the road as soon as possible.

Mexicos oldest hostel that still ranks among the countries best. Built in the 1950s it is located on Isla Mujeres, a small Caribbean (7km long) island and is 20min from Cancun by boat. This hostel boasts a restaurant and bar that is open until 11pm, after which the real fun begins at the beach bar until 2.45am.

We are close to North Beach, which is Isla Mujeres most beautiful beach and Pocna itself is situated right on its own beach that is perfect for relaxing and taking the sun.This exciting hostel offers free activities such as Yoga everymorning, Spanish classes, juggling and what ever happens to be being taught by one of the many talented people that pass through. If you have the talent and the time of at least one month, you can teach an activity and have your cost of your stay covered.Winter time brings on private parties inside the hostel and also bonfire nights with live music and jamming after. Everynight in there is live music in Pocna and the year also brings many high profile bands to play within the walls of Pocna. Those to date include Los Authentico Decadentes, Los Aguas Aguas, No Te Va a Gustar and La Renga with many more in the future plans. An amazing fun and social hostel. On the backpackers trail and full of international guests. A must to come and visit in Mexico. ... more   less
