Treated our soon to be 21 year old son to an early birthday trip to Isla Mujeres. We have been visiting the island for many years and prefer to do the self catering thing. La Vida Dulce Casitas have a perfect location for our needs. A short one and one half block walk takes you to the Super Express for groceries on the main square. Around the corner is our favorite pharmacy/drug store and the beach is within walking distance. My husband and son dive with Enrique's Unique Dives which is also one and a half blocks away.
Jeri, your hostess, makes you feel welcome from the start. She and her husband have logged a lot of years on the island and offered new "island tips" even for us who have visited for the last eight years. Their reservations system worked perfectly and the website is an accurate depiction of what you get.
I am posting some pictures of the rear unit. Some notes of differences between La Vida Dulce and other places we've stayed on the island: The internet connection worked consistently and was strong in the bedroom of the rear unit. The mini spit a/c was quiet and worked great. The water pressure from the rainhead shower was good and the water heated quickly. Loved having a separate space to hang wet clothes before stepping into the shower. Plenty of American options on tv. Son was very satisfied to flake out on the overstuffed and large twin bed (he's a big boy!) in the living area and watch a movie after a day of diving.
This is our new "first option" for staying on Isla! Thanks Jeri and hope to meet Steve on our next trip. John, Tina and Jared Norris
