»Posted by on Dec 14, 2012 in Blog | 0 comments

If you are planning a vacation trip to Cancun, hop the ferry across the bay to the small finger-shaped Isla Mujeres. The name means “Island of Women” and there are a number of theories as to how the name came to be but it’s not because of the topless beach.

The most marked royal touch is seen in the the fantastic Brighton Royal Pavilion with its eastern domes and spires.
