Like everywhere hit by Hurricane Wilma last October, Isla Mujeres has some construction going on, but otherwise looks great. In fact, aside from a couple of boarded-up buildings, you wouldn’t know anything had happened.
Poc Na Hostel (p. 101) has a new website: www.pocna.com.
Casa Maya Zazil-Ha (p. 101) is now using yet another name: Villas Kiin. All the signs leading up to the place say Casa Maya, however, and the owner is the same.
Vistalmar (p. 102) is now painted green, not pinkâ€”in casing you’re looking for that. Otherwise it’s the same, though, and it’s sea-view rooms are a great deal.
Cosmic Cosas used bookshop (p. 107) has moved in with the new MaÃ±anas cafÃ© at the corner of C Guerrero and C Matamoros; as far as I can tell, there’s no Internet access here, though.
Entrance to Hacienda Mundaca is up to M$20, and I’d really recommend steering clear of the “zoo” area. Also, the turtle farmâ€”which isn’t mentioned in this guide because it was shut when I visitedâ€”has reopened, under the direction of the Isla Mujeres government (as is Hac. Mundaca). Entrance is M$20, and you get to see lots of baby sea turtles. The farm is located near Hacienda Mundaca, on the road up the spit enclosing Laguna Macax.
