Special Coastal Mexico
15 Unspoilt Jewels Of Mexico’s Caribbean Coast.
Slide Nr 3
Isla Contoy – Situated where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean Sea, Isla Contoy National Park is preserved by the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas – a good thing, as 152 species of marine birds call its mangrove swamps and lowland rainforests home. Official boat trips run from Isla Mujeres, Puerto Juárez and Cancún, with the journey taking around two hours, depending on the weather and departure point. The first time I came here, I thought I was dreaming. If heaven exists, it must be like this unspoilt island! [Photo: descubriendoelmundo/Flickr]
