back to the beach @ Isla Mujeres

arriving in cancun, we decided to head on out to the beach. we´d heard about a place called isla mujeres.... so we got the ferry out to it. it´s a decent size island north of cancun....
the locals aren´t excessively in your face about forcing their wares (usually arts and crafts... the same type you see all over mexico) upon you. the beaches are awesome, accomodation is cheap, but it´s so hot and humid!!!! initially we got a room with some decent ventilation and managed a decent nights sleep.... during the middle of the day you need to either find some water or some AC.... and your drink doesnt stay cool.... could really do with a stubby cooler around here.
being so close to cancun, we decided it was mandatory for us to participate in one night of 'anarchy' at coco bongo at zona hotelara.
we´ve met some pretty cool aussies at the island, and had a ton of laughs with them... so much that we´ve decided to move into their dorm. partly because they´re funny guys & girls, but also because they have AC and we didnt.... it´s amazing.
anyway... shortly we´re headed down to playa del carmen... where the diving is supposed to be ok, but a little touristy... will be interesting to see how we go.
