We had originally booked a trip to Holbox to swim with the Whale Sharks, however the are not in Holbox this year and are close to Cancun. We quickly had to change our travel plans. We did not want to stay in Cancun and found this island on tripadvisor-Isla Mujeres. We stayed at Hotel La Joya based on the previous wonderful reviews on tripadvisor. We could not have asked for a better hotel. We do not like resorts and crowds-and wanted a smaller hotel. The hotel was clean, hotel staff very friendly, and it was on the water. Each room has a balcony that overlooks the water. They even have a small private beach where you could take out Kayaks and snorkel. They had room service and could either deliver you food/drinks to your room or by the pool. The food is really good. We could not believe the price! We would gladly return and hope to some day. Of note-the whale sharks were phenomenal and we saw over 20 of them!
