We came to Isla Mujeres like most people looking for and expecting a relaxing vacation. We indeed found that, and we also found it hard to leave. We searched for property for a couple years and there was not much available. However, we found two lots that the locals called “The Jungle lots” it took a while to see the vision. Some of our friends who have property on the island said that this would be a great place for us to put down roots on this tropical paradise, so we decided to go for it.
