So after the wedding we decided to stay one more day in Mexico and spread the wealth so we headed over to Isla Mujeres for a night. We hitched a ride with Z(squared) to the airport and then headed to ferry port. While we were on the Ultra Mar ferry there was a gentlemen behind us who was talking up 2 Canadian Tourists who were making a day trip to Isla.
Gentlemen – “Oh is this your first time to Isla?”
Tourist – “Yes, we heard that we should visit the island while we are here in Mexico.”
Gentlemen – “Well the thing about Isla is that your first trip will be for a couple hours, then your next trip will be for a couple days, next thing you will be spending a week or month here. Or in my case, years.”
Tourist – “So what makes it so special.”
Gentlemen – “Hard to describe it to someone who has never been there but between the culture, the food and the locals you will probably love it.”
So here we were heading back to Isla and the gentlemen hit the nail on the head. Way back RJ/Mal-o-rie, Mrs. Trumpet and I took a day trip to Isla. Then we stayed for 3 nights before meeting up with English Mike and then last year we spent a week on Isla. Of course the last trip someone came back with a big souvenir but we definatly had the Isla Bug.
We hung out at North Beach after checking into our hotel in town and had dinner at our favorite restaurant on the island. Naturally drinks at Bobo’s were in order and we checked out the local drinking establishments.
Love the streets in Isla, small quant and cobblestoned
Our hotel for the night. Clean room, fridge and microwave in the room and even had an outside patio.
Swung by Bobo’s to check on if Olivia’s was open for Dinner that night.
Trust me when I say that Mrs Trumpet was excited that this joint was open on a Monday night.
Hey Tilapia Lover & husband and others. So the beach erosion has took a bunch out of the beach here at Phoenix. What was 3 rows of these beach beds before you walked into the water is gone. Currently there is only 1 row and it is tight to say the least.
We ended up heading over to the point and made camp at one of the other beach clubs. Weather was spotty and the wind was a blowing but we had a good time.
Tons of Kite Surfers out there this day.
We kept on waiting on dude to wipe out on the broken dock but he did pretty good.
Our Favorite Soft Shelled Crab Joint was closed on Mondays. Bummer.
To kill time while having some drinks we played dominos.
Still slays me seeing Santa stuff down in the tropics.
A puffy coat? Come on Man! It isn’t that cold!
A good time was had by the Trumpets even if it was only for 24 hours.
