Riconada apartment is in the colonial section of isla mujeres. Approximately two miles from the popular north beach. You can take a ta I for around 20 pesos about 2 dollars. The colonia is the palace to be if you want to avoid the tourist area and mingle with the locals. We enjoy listening to Ypres bicycle bells of the vendors as they pass by advertising their wares, tortillas, home made tamales etc..
Riconada is a lovely one bedroom apartment with separate bathroom with shower. It is spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable. There is shopping nearby where you can stock up on al your supplies. It is called the chedraui, something like a Walmart. There are also several smaller stores nearby.
The locals are very friendly and love it if you try your Spanish out with them.
Across the street is the brisas restaurant, and just down the street is the mango cafe which specializes in excellent breakfasts. There are also several local eateries, some run out of a home.
This was a memorable trip for us, we loved it.
Claudio, our, host was wonderful, very accommodating and friendly.More
