Should I visit La Jolla or La Joya?

Wait. Where and what is La Jolla?

Maybe you have listen about La Jolla, a beautiful place in San Diego, California in front the Pacific Ocean coast

La Jolla is an excellent place to swim but also a great place to take surf lessons because it has waves big enough to surf but not so big to be dangerous.

And, if you love nature, La Jolla cove is the best place you can visit. Sea lions and seals are commonly there and besides that you can have a snorkel tour exploring the sandy and rocky reef in the area’s ecological reserve where you are surrounded by garibaldi, harmless leopard sharks and various other reef fish.

Talking about food, you can find every kind of food. If you want a hamburger, you could go to BURGER LOUNGE (perfect for families) or HENNESSEY’S LA JOLLA (Casual spot with an Irish feel great for a late-night dinner).

If you want seafood, GEORGE’S AT THE COVE is the perfect place, where there is a gorgeous  view of the ocean. Even you can find international food: Italian, french, mexican or japanese.  Is important to say that most restaurants only have pick-up service for sanitary measures.

But, have you ever listened about “La Joya?

Let’s now meet this new and mystery place called: La Joya.

La Joya is a hotel in Isla Mujeres, México, a paradise in the Mexican Caribbean, in front of wonderful crystalline and turquoise waters where you can witness the 1st sun rays who touch Mexico every morning.

This is the place to come to enjoy a relaxing island break. But don’t worry if you want something more savage, it is 20 minutes by ferry to Cancun.

One of the best things you can do is rent a golf cart because that way you can tour the entire island.

After you rent a golf cart, you  can go to Punta Sur, the tallest point of the island, where there is an incredible viewpoint  and cliffs. The ideal place to take photos.By the other side is Punta Norte, one of the best beaches in the Caribbean and main beach on Isla Mujeres where you can just relax and enjoy the day. A curious fact is that this was the first point that the Spanish conquerors touched, back in 1517.

What can I do in La Joya?

Do you like snorkeling? Well, you’re going to love the natural reef park “Garrafon”. There live a lot of marine species, from starfish to fish of all sizes. We strongly recommend using biodegradable sunscreen to avoid damaging the corals and avoid touching the species in the reef.
