Isla Contoy, Mexico



Sailing North inside the reef; unfortunately, the reef is too far away from the shore

to provide a good sheltered anchorage – pretty rough even inside the reef

Apart from the navy base, this biological research station seems to be the only inhabitated places on the island.

I guess we were lucky that the park rangers even allowed us to stay for one night. What a change to Cancun and Isla Mujeres!
