We arrived into Puerto Juarez and right away the place was amazing. The hotel is a 3 minute taxi ride from the ferry which only cost $30 pesos. FYI anywhere from the hotel is $30 - $50 Pesos, the cab drivers are great and don't try rip you off!! Upon our arrival Miguel was there waiting for us. He was so helpful to us the entire time and the quality of service was impeccable. We stayed in Harmony for a great rate. The hotel is located right on the cusp of the hotel and local residents districts so it is in the middle of the island. If you want to rent a bike, scooter, or golf cart you can. We asked Miguel to recommend some places and Ciros was the one we chose for a great price!
The restaurant in the hotel is AMAZING!! I must say we ate at a number of different restaurants on the island all of which were very good, but Casa Ixchel's Chef and Juve were fantastic. Juve is the BMW... The Best Mexican Waiter. Exceptionally priced and flavorful, we always ended up craving the menu.
Be sure to check out the Ruins on the Southern tip of the Island preferably in the morning as it is the most Eastern tip in all of Mexico and therefore gets the first light of sun in the morning. For sand beach lounging, I would recommend going to Porte Norte right infront of the Avalon Reef Hotel, a very quiet and wonderful beach. You will find that all the sand beaches and water activities happen on the West side of the Island because the East side is much more rocky. All in all, Casa Ixchel is the best for real, authentic and quality everything, you will not be disappointed. Muchos Gracias Casa Ixchel Duran and Cene!!
