Isla Mujeres (The Island of Women)

The final stop in CA!

Hey there boys and girls! We have left the madness that was Playa Del Carmen and have caught the boat to the beautiful Isla Mujeres, so called because it was said that Carribean Pirates left their women on this little rock while they went out a plundering for booty ahaaahhaaaa. Things are a little different now and we got the lovely new ferry across from Cancun....

The Island was a welcome relief from Playa and was a lot more laid back and relaxed, it was still fairly touristy but also colourful and very pretty...

Also the beach was AMAZING....

The sea was really shallow and you could walk out for ages before it got to above your waist! A lot of time was spent playing around in the sea and sunning ourselves on the beach....

We took a long walk around the island one day and found ourselves at the Tortugranja, where the local conservationists protect various types of sea turtles. We saw cute little ones...

Kind of albino medium sized ones...

There was also a sea tank outside where there was a very scary shark swimming about, and a touch pool inside where you could pick up some very slimy looking sea dwelling ┬┤things┬┤. As you can see Rusty was delighted by his new friend!

We even found Nemo while we were there. He's fine and sends his love...

Anyway enough of all that! We have sadly made our way back to Cancun today for an overnight stop before heading to the airport in the morning. Can't belive our time away is nearly over :( Still we have one very exciting week left and as it is our official wedding/honeymoon week we are banning ourselves from computers or phones. We are soooooooooooooooo excited about seeing you all and can't wait to celebrate our newly married status with you all on the 3rd. Look out for the final Vegas blog and wedding pics which will appear at some point. See you all very soon, C&R xxx
