la isla bonita

wading out

Our spring break trip to Isla Mujeres was unbelievably perfect. Dream-like even. Lazy days on the beach, amazing food and drinks, swimming with the fishes and a romantic breezy palapa at Villa la Bella. Head to our flickr stream for the full story, I'll give you the highlight reel here.

Villa la Bella serves as a perfect home base. Beautiful, quiet, relaxing but still plenty to do and people to chat with. Ashley and Curtis are gracious hosts, and were sure to keep our bellies full with delicious breakfasts and top-notch pina coladas!

The island is small, friendly and easy to navigate. Cabs are cheap and the drivers know the island so spanish or english, you can get anywhere you need to go. Two new favorites from this visit?
