We spent very little time here, as it was hot, and we are not big shoppers. The sales people were high pressure. If you love to shop and haggle, then you may like it.

Really nice place to walk and relax. A large number or restaurants and of course Mexican handicrafts to buy. Let’s face it ! we all need an extra wrestling mask ?

Convenient location with most everything on just a few blocks. Still, it is what it is - a ton of shops selling the same things. The food carts are good and inexpensive. Tons of reasonably-priced restaurants available.

Looks like a mini 5th Avenue at night (Playa Del Carmen). Really enjoyed El Patio, Miguel's Moonlite (and Miguel), Faynes, and Terraza Isla.

Worth a trip to ISLA MUJERES. Much more "laid-back" than Glitzy Cancun. Rent a GolfCar go exploring. Great Food Joints & NIGHT-LIFE!

Get pesos, you will save significantly. Also refrain from using credit cards, I had two different cards compromised while on Isla this last November.

There is a shop right at the zocala across from the malecon. You can't miss it, as it is purple! They have a fabulous reputation.
