Find Your Escape in an Isla Mujeres Sunset

Tagged: , , , , ,

There are a multitude of reasons I could list to try and convince you to visit Isla Mujeres, a small island off the coast of Cancun, Mexico. That, however, can be saved for another article. Sometimes, instead of incessant blathering, an image is all you need to get your point across. Witness the image below from Sean Sheridan.

Welcome to El Patio, the Isla Mujeres Answer to Key West’s Blue Heaven

Tagged: , , , , , ,

El Patio, located on Isla Mujeres, a tiny island just off the coast of Cancun, bares a striking resemblance to Blue Heaven, one of my favorite restaurants in Key West.

An Isla Mujeres Sunset

Tagged: , , , , , ,

Earlier this past summer, I asked for sunset pictures on my Beach Bar Bums Facebook page. The response was overwhelming but there was one clear winner – Donna Caffo’s image of the sunset from penthouse 709 at the Ixchel Beach Hotel on the island of Isla Mujeres.

Tagged: , , , , , , ,

Last weekend, I posted a photo to my Facebook page of a Wadadli beer on Turner’s Beach during our first visit to Antigua. I asked the people who had liked the page to post pics of themselves enjoying their favorite beverages on the beach and promised to feature the image with the most “likes” in an article.
