Rudy at Backpack & Snorkel
I am Rudy and I love traveling the world, my full-time job and my fantastic wife - not necessarily in this order, though. We travel the world on multiple very fulfilling and relaxing vacations per year. My obsession for planning and finding the best things to see and the best things to do and her desire for simplicity help us build itineraries for wonderful experiences. For us, travelling is all about Making Memorable Moments and this is what my blog is all about. We don't rush from one country or attraction to the next (anymore). If you want to do the same or just want to be inspired, then please check out our blog and let us help you remove the stress out of your travels. You work hard and deserve to relax. So, pack your Backpack and Snorkel and start Making Memorable Moments!
Isla Mujeres in Mexico has stolen our hearts and we consider it to be our personal paradise! It features white sand beaches (Playa Norte is supposedly Mexico's best beach), turquoise water and authentic Mexican food. Playa Norte has good swimming, good snorkeling - even for beginners - and good sunbathing.
The island is a short ferry ride from Cancun, but really a world away. Cancun is busy, somewhat hectic and a tourist trap. Isla Mujeres is relaxed and much more authentic. With Playa Norte, it has Mexico's best beach (that's what they say and I totally believe that is true), it has a touristy downtown area but also plenty of authentic Mexican food that you can buy for very little money.
