After a flight, a shuttle and a boat ride, we landed on this tiny island just off the coast of Mexico. Isla Mujeres was all that we thought it would be and maybe even a bit more. I was immediately taken by the views. I assumed all the pics online were touched up but I was completely wrong. The water was a bright, crystal clear, fluorescent, turquoise dream; amazing! We were ready to start the “becoming 40” celebration.
