My husband and I have traveled to Isla Mujeres 25+ times over the last 15 years staying at many places on the island. Our son and his wife stayed with Steve & Jeri at La Vida Dulce in Nov. 2011 and they recommended it to us. We stayed for 10 days the first time in Feb. 2012 and for 14 days in June 2012. We've found "home" for our future trips to the island. Steve and Jeri provide everything you need. In addition to the obvious, they provide free phone calls to the states, free ice and drinking water (that's a big deal on the island!), free advice, even accompanied me to help translate when I needed to see a doctor after I developed an ear infection. My husband had a crown break and they were able to recommend a good dentist on the island. They know the best places to eat, shop, etc. on the island. Although they don't have ocean views, it is just a short walk to Playa Norte beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches with white sand and incredibly blue carribean waters....incidentally, they even provided us with their own beach chairs! Seriously...they share everything they have like you are family visiting. The location is perfect for walking to some of the best quaint restaurants on the island. We rarely rent a golf cart as we like to walk. If we want to go to other places on the island, taxis are abundant and well as bike rentals. We walk the two blocks from the ferry so don't even need a taxi when we arrive or depart. We both like to take our laptops when we travel and they have the fastest internet connection we've found on the island and they don't charge you to log on. Oh, I almost forgot to mention...the rates are very reasonable! We plan to make La Vida Dulce our "home away from home" again very soon!
