    hints for visit to islas mujeres off mexican coast regarding food, entertainment, other cool stuff?

    HAVE to go to Dolphin Discovery. We did the big pkg, totally worth it. The longest program was only ~2hrs, but you can spend the day there, pools, bars, buffet, all included in your ticket. We stayed on Isla, at Privileges, the main road close to Captain Jax, had the best souvenir prices. 3 tshirts for less than the price of one in the main "shop" area a couple blocks away. When u get off the ferry, there are guys with carts offering to help u to your hotel, or destination, we were approached, and for just a tip, he hauled our luggage to our hotel, and handed us directly to the doorman&front desk people. Don't get suckered, it is a tourist place. FIND MANUEL "Manny". Can't remember the street but close to Privileges. He has the best golf carts, and tours, very friendly, honest, knowledgable. MOSTLY one-ways. So be careful if u get a cart, we saw (and laughed at lots of people turning around in the streets) they drive crazy, so be aware. You can walk everywhere on Isla, we got a taxi for $5 from one end to the other, and got a mini tour and history on the way. TIP your doorman, waiters, maids, etc. They don't make much, and your couple dollar tips here and there get you great service. Super safe, security was everywhere. Turtle farm, beaches, diving trips, dolphin discovery, and just walking thru the whole island was amazing. Still "Cancun experience" but less populated, more relaxed. I call it the adult Cancun. Still bars and parties, but less spring breakish. almost 8 years ago

    It is possible to bargain prices?

    Absolutely. But be "smart and reasonable". The shop that sells a tshirt for $18us vs the shop that sells the same shirt 3/$12US. Kind of rude to try to haggle on the 3/$12 deal. But use your judgement, we got some silver necklaces for $20, that they started offering to us at $80. And shop around. They will be open tomorrow, with the same things, you can always go back. We found the best deals at a little shop with amazing prices and we didn't haggle at all, because they were so cheap. And it was a shop we walked by a million times before going in, almost didn't notice it. almost 8 years ago
