Isla Mujeres Trip Timing - Spring

My husband and I can't get away in 2018 until the week after Easter. We're planning for 8 nights, arrive Monday and depart the following Tuesday, April 2 - 10. We'll not have another opportunity to go until mid-May.

If you have experience with travel to Isla Mujeres during the post-Easter Mexican school break, what was it like? Would you postpone a trip to Isla Mujeres until May? My concerns are crowds, lines and levels of service.

It will be crowded.
Each day after Easter it should start thinning out, but it will still be busy.
We just returned - very quiet - relatively speaking.

Thanks for corroborating what I've read on other threads and the TA IM forum. It's valuable to me to get a response from someone I've met and who I think can roll with it - come what may.

I hope you and Sue had a great time on Isla

We have been there multiple times but never around Easter

Love it and it was fun to spend an evening with Sue and Rick

I think May would be good for Isla. That's when we go. Already have our place set for 10 nights this upcoming May. Still can be crowded during the day due to day trippers but, after 6pm crowds are thinning out.

Thanks for the replies. May is possible, but for us weather at home is a consideration. Our favorite time to visit the Yucatan Peninsula is February or March. Windy sometimes, a norte sometimes, but still much better weather than at home. Plus, the travel dates buoy us through winter blahs.

By May, our winter blahs are gone and weather is great here at home. We're gardening and enjoying local outdoor activities.

We'll see. I'm not going to get too twisted. The reason our travel schedule has been different recently is my DH's school schedule. In his early 50's he went back to study culinary arts. He refuses to miss a week of class unlike his first college days. But he enjoys it immensely and I enjoy benefits from his learning
