Day Trip with a Toddler!

Can anyone give me advice/info on a day trip to Isla Mujeres with a 13mth toddler?? I know most people will think we are mad for even thinking about bringing him with us or travelling so far but since we are getting married out there with our family and friends coming along we decided that the day would not be complete withouthim.

I have read on the site that this is a good place to visit and would really appreciate any advice that anyone can give!

You will have a fantastic trip to the island. The water is perfect to "play" in-very calm and the beaches are beautiful.

We just came back from Isla and there were many people traveling there with their small children - from infants on up, so I wouldn't worry about that at all. He will love playing on the white sand beaches and the calm water areas . . . . and I would consider more than just a day trip if you have the time - Isla is a lovely island, much quieter than Cancun as well as much more affordable. Just pack plenty of baby sunscreen, invest in one of the flaphats that cover the neck as well and baby sunglasses, as the sun is very intense - that would be my greatest fear as parent traveling with a baby. As well, I would travel with a well built baby backpack (rather than a carriage/stroller) so that you will have better accessiblity. Have a wonderful trip! :)
