I hope I don't have to change my username here, but in doing research the last couple of days I looked into Isla Mujeres, which i'd initially skipped over because for some reason i always had the impression it was a mini-Cancun. From what I've gathered so far it doesn't seem that bad - or is it???
Holbox is of course still my first choice, but i'm wondering if it might be more practical to go to IM instead (especially since they do whale shark tours from there too, which is what drew me into Holbox in the first place)?? less travel time, closer to the airport, etc...I'm not looking for nightlife but i don't mind a little hustle/bustle and the opportunity to meet new people (as a solo female traveller).
OR - is Holbox that much better than IM and why not just go for it?? My head is splitting trying to decide. I did a search here on these forums first, of course, but am not sure it helped....thx guys
