Isla Mujeres, Cancun, Mexico

The ‘Sol’ was out in Isla Mujeres, when we took the ferry from Cancun to the small island. Literally translated to ‘Womens Island’, it is about 30-45 minutes off the coast of Cancun, Mexico, depending on how cheap your ferry tickets are. This was Playa Norte, and we pretty much had it all to ourselves when we first arrived. The island is really gorgeous, although getting around is difficult and expensive. The north end of the island is all beaches and perfect pool-like lagoons, where you can snorkel with very clingy and stalker-y fish, while the south end has beautiful views of the Mexican Caribbean over rugged cliffs and sunbathing iguanas.

Lovin’ the sky! It’s so beautiful. Wish I was at the beach right now. Freezing in Brussels instead 🙂

But it’s December! You’re supposed to be freezing! 😛 I can’t get used to this sunny Christmas business, Agness!

Hello, I have to do a PowerPoint presentation about traveling to a place. I have chosen Mexico and was wondering if I could use a few of your photo’s in my presentation. This is for educational purposes only and I will be more than happy to cite you as the source. 🙂
