I was here for two weeks back-to-back with two different groups. Different challenges, opportunities, and experiences both weeks. Read all about it.

Hi Ken: Throughout your several trips to Isla Mujeres- is there any snorkeling reachable from shore and are there condos etc for rent for 3-4 days- not a full week? Thanks

Although I've never tried snorkeling from shore, based on where we dive when around the island, I don't think so. As for condos, I'm sure there are (I'm sure you could do Nautibeach for less than a week) but I don't have any specifics.
