So yesterday we packed our bags again, checked out and got to the bus to Cancún (104 pesos). At first I had planned to spend some days here but no, it doesn’t interest me at all… to big and touristic. Instead we took a taxi to the Puerto to grab the Ferry that leaves for Isla Mujeres, a small island about 30 minutes from Cancun. I think it was 130 pesos with the return ticket.
We had checked on the internet before to see if we could find a hostel or a cheap room, but everything was booked, and we could only find from 600 pesos and up. So when we got here we asked some local people working here if they recommended anything and they said where we could find a room for 400 pesos. But along the way, we bumped into a lovely lady that said she had double rooms for 300 pesos, with AC, private bathroom and wifi… sooooo… this is where we are staying at right now, Posada Suemy. :) Our only preferences were, no sand!! Hahaha…
Where we live from the outside. Sorry for the finger!!
Our room in Posada Suemy, 300 pesos at night, quite good.
After taking some showers, we went out to get to know the city, and it’s such a good vibe here!! We were both smiling and just being grateful that our last location in Mexico is great. It reminds us of Holbox, but a bigger version. The locals are really nice and sweet here and we are glad that the prices are in pesos and that the vendors speak in Spanish, haha.
We ate dinner at Poc-Tuc or something like that, just one square from here, with good food and affordable prices!! Once again happy to be able to eat until we aren’t hungry, about 150 pesos for both of us.
Next day: nothing planned! Haha. Just going to the supermarket and to update this blog. But tomorrow I’ll be doing some scuba dive! Oh, by the way, we also bumped into the Argentinian guy from Cordoba that worked in the restaurant where we used to eat dinner in Holbox, he is now here working with tours :) I’m so amazed that the world is so little, or mexico, haha.
Wandering around in Isla Mujeres. We live in that pink building on the left.
I just like some front doors better than others. Like this one. So charming.
