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.
