Captain Dulche´s Maritime Museum treasures a big part of Isla Mujeres history, this is documented in a great photo collection of over 150 that have never been seen before. The Museum also contains an excellent collection of anchors, buoys, chains and lanterns, maritime tools and two projection rooms, showing one video of the famous mexican diver Ramon Bravo and the even more famous Jacques Cousteau.

We have driven by this sign many times and finally drove down in. It is well worth the side trip, very neat bar made from a sail boat and big patio and restaurant. The tin scuptures are very neat.

If you get something from the bar, either food or drink, there is no charge for the beach or museum. Food was good. We also took a snorkel tour out of there that we highly enjoyed!
