Remembering El Milagro

29 April 2012
Nancy
There were Peter & Wendy, Dave, Diane, Alex, Mia & Koa (dog), Clark, Ken & his wife, Jeff, Walter & John & Steve & Roberta. They were our dock friends in Isla Mujeres. Then, of course, the most important ones - Julio, Jaime, Rosie (who has the same birthday as Fernando), & too many other names to remember. They were the people who worked El Milagro Marina. Eric, the owner, came about mid stay & was very nice, friendly & helpful. This place makes you feel like you are part of the family. They welcome you with open arms & hearts & always have a smile for you. It was not the most fancy marina. In fact it was rough around the edges. But that's what made it so nice. They have bikes you can use, no charge. The showers are outside & open at the top to get the nice breeze in. How cool is that? They will do your laundry for you for very little & also have a dinner for everyone on Saturday nights. There are also rooms to rent that are very clean & spacious, for those of you who do not have a boat. Julio is the jefe (boss). He can help you register with the 4 different agencies. Immigrations, customs, health & agriculture. He can also give you advise when you go to the main land to register your boat. (It's just another way to get $ out of you. But at least now the boat is registered for 10 years in Mexico) It makes it very easy & as smooth as it can be. El Milagro Marina is definitely a place that makes you want to go back & visit again. Thanks guys! You made our stay very pleasant. We'll see you again soon.
