Day Trip - Mia Reef Resort

We treated ourselves to an amazing day pass at the Mia Reef Isla Mujeres.  The day was adventurous and indulgent, but well worth it.  The beach is breathtakingly beautiful, with an abundance of loungers to lure you into a relaxed state and a nap.  In addition to the wonderful loungers, they also have umbrellas that can be placed and positioned wherever your heart desires.  Just let the attendant know, and your wish is their command.  And if you’re not ready to chill on a lounger, there are plenty of other comfortable seating areas around the resort; all to accommodate you!
