Tom and Maggie Washa are from Wisconsin and began visiting Isla Mujeres in 1991. When Tom retired from a professional firefighting career he wanted to escape winter and Isla Mujeres offered the solution. They now live on Isla for 6 months every year.
Casa de Maggie was built originally as an English school in 2003 and Maggie ran the La Gloria English School for 9 years. In 2014 the building was converted to a spacious 2-flat. It is located in La Gloria, the most wonderful community on Isla Mujeres!
Casa Salina Grande is a 2nd floor flat in the community of Salina Grande. It is perfect for a single person or a couple. We offer high quality, timely service for your stay.
Both locations have in-community advantages, with grocery stores and great dining within walking distance. You will have maps of Isla to help you find everything you could want. Downtown is an easy 10 minute cab ride from either location, or a nice 40 min to hour walk. Centro (the downtown) has great beaches, shopping and restaurants, and also lots of crowds and traffic jams! Cabs are easy to catch, economical and the fastest way to get to and from downtown.
Isla Mujeres is a newly discovered paradise on Mexico's eastern point of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Caribbean. The island has a strong Cultural Mayan influence, friendly, helpful and generous. The food reflects their heritage with great dishes to choose from, you won't be disappointed! We offer some hidden jewels to stay at on this beautiful island in the Caribbean.
