Jim and I love sunshine escapes. Aqua and teal water with ocean sounds calm and relax so we can unwind and recharge from the American rat race we live in Minnesota. My mom tour guided from Minnesota through Central America for 20 yrs. We built Casa Marlena in her memory. We hope to retire here someday to enjoy God's natural splendor.
After diving and touring most of the Caribbean we find the Cancun area to be the best value. It is a short, inexpensive flight. We love international quisine. Home Depot and mall shopping across the bay. Small town, nice people on Isla Mujeres. Isla has a 'Corona' perfect beach, lovely snorkeling, world class fishing and an upscale new home district to build in. The island is getting more and more busy as it gets discovered, so we bought before we could no longer afford our dream home.
Restful oceanside walks. Peaceful stargazing. Whale shark and reef snorkeling. Yoga on the roof. Relaxing crash of the surf. Privacy, just minutes from one of the greatest white sand beaches ever. We are thrilled to install our first private swimming pool! Artsy community. Many musicians. Lots of International high quality quisine. Strolling Hidalgo street entertainment. Good grocery store. Chedraui (walmart type store) And an American hospital just across the bay, just in case.
