As the sun rises over my fourth day on Isla Mujeres, I think it's about time to assemble and share some thoughts on this beautiful tropical paradise.
My writing perch is the rooftop patio at Hotel Las Palmas. It's only 7 am, but I've been up and feeling wonderful for close to 2 hours. For some reason, this place transforms me into a morning person, a category I would never put myself in back home.
By enjoying every possible minute of sunshine on Isla, I hope that I will feel like I took full advantage of my time here, but probably no less sad when I have to leave.
Here are some of the things to do on Isla when you're an early bird:
1) Watch the beautiful sunrise.
2) Take a quiet stroll along the oceanfront boardwalk.
4) Check out a morning class at Vastu Yoga, located at Hotel Na Balam. The instructor, Lorrie Conglose does a wonderful job ensuring that everyone maximizes their practice, based on their skill level.
