Villa La Bella, Isla Mujeres, Mexico
You walk off the ferry from Cancun and get your first wave of Isla Mujeres' small fishing village vibe. And just when you think things couldn't get any sleepier, you stumble upon Villa La Bella, a six-room adults-only B&B on the Caribbean side of the dolphin-shaped island. At this oasis by the sea, outdoor hammocks and an open-air living room provide plenty of restful spaces, while cold beers from the swing bar are always an arm's length away. For more privacy, hide away in one of the two palm-frond palapa suites fitted with king-sized hanging beds and let the sound of the ocean lull you into a tropical slumber. You'll feel like Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of the moon, who has a strong presence here on Isla Mujeres.
Palapa suites range from $110 to $175 per night, depending on the season. Breakfast is included each morning.
