Stroll Hildalgo and eat at international cuisine restaurants or get a shrimp taco for $2.00US. Live on our nearly empty 2 mile stretch of surf and stroll-able natural rock coastline that radiates peace and invites contemplation of God's natural splendor. Beachcomber heaven! Sea glass, shells, crashing waves or the stunning aquamarine sea and cliffs. Casa Marlena feels secluded, but is just a short walk or taxi ride from all the action. Fast WiFi to keep in touch with home - while lazing around the pool or house. :o)
On calm bonanza days, snorkel directly in front of our casa. Bring wet shoes to walk from the ocean front pool 50 feet toward the unbelievable clear and clean aquamarine Caribbean sea. Lounge on the 800 square foot private rooftop. Private swimming Pool & patio (new 2012). Very private lower floor master king bedroom and bath suite. Main floor queen bedroom and bath. Vaulted great room. The ochre and aqua architecture and tile are serenely restful in this newer home. The photos of the views do not do us justice. Lazing on our balconies are the only way to truly appreciate Casa Marlena.
Info and tip sheet available for transportation and other questions. IslaCancunRentals site button located below. Private airport transpo available for $40 per van. We are less than an hour from the airport and a world away from Cancun-Vegas.
Excitement to be found: Visit the only launch point worldwide for whale shark snorkeling. Mid June to mid September. Take a day trip to Isla Contoy Nature Preserve. Dive Manchiones Reef. Mako reef is our new favorite. Isla Ches reef, near Isla Contoy is also shallow and beautiful. Home of Garrafon National underwater park. Isla Mujeres boasts the new Underwater Museum, cool statues! Great snorkeling! Mingle on acres of gorgeous clean, white sands at shallow Playa Norte - north beach. Isla is renowned for deep sea fishing. Yachts love this marina and the shallow calm waters of North Beach/Playa Norte. Our latest find is Juan Campos. (find him at ChiChitas on Play Norte or Oscars Marina. He rents his 35 foot sailboat for $100/hr. Seeing Isla Mujeres from the water is a new experience for us. On a good wind day, the trip around the entire island takes 3 hours.
Stroll through Calle Hidalgo for dinner and drinks watching the street dancers, fire show, Indian flute quartet, mariachi bands, steel drums. Dance all night at Poc Na or Faynes.. Many live bands entertain nightly. Get a pic with a parrot, giant white snake or iguana on your shoulder. Swim with dolphins. Pet a nurse shark. Learn at the Turtle Farm. Relax and let Isla Mujeres relaxing vibe refresh and refuel your spirit.
