About IslaTravelers.com

Welcome to IslaTravelers.com. My name is Bob Crabb, owner, developer, and guilty party to putting this site on the internet.

After visiting Isla Mujeres several times from 2002 to 2004, and having been connected with other frequent visitors via an internet message board, I started this site on somewhat of a whim on August 11, 2005. My reason for starting the site was so that I could have a venue for posting some stories that I had written about travel to Isla Mujeres and other islands, and because I wanted to open an internet forum for others with similar travel interests. Although at the time, there were two other web sites with message boards dedicated to fans of the island, I didn't like either of them, so I felt that the only way I would have a cyber spot to hang out that was to my liking would be to start my own.

As a testament to the old adage of "be careful what you wish for", I had no idea what was in store for me in taking on the task of managing an online forum. The forum grew to a membership of over 1700 registered users. As is typical of message boards, there was a core group of regulars, in this case about 150 who were regular posters. I liked maintaining the board for a long time. I enjoyed the technical challenge of developing and implementing new features, and I usually enjoyed the camaraderie of the board. I got really burned out on the experience, however. One can never predict when something comes up that needs to be handled, whether it is a technical issue, a user needing tech support (usually just needing an education in how things work), a spammer, a troublemaker, a scammer, or just a pissing match between members. Most of the time, these things would pop into my life at a time when I really didn't need or want any disturbances. I finally just got fed up with it all, and in March of 2010, I deleted the entire site from the internet.

At that time, most of the static content had gotten stale. The island had changed, and my wife and I no longer had any desire to travel there. The only part of the site that I regretted destroying was the Storm News page. The information on that page was very similar to what you see on the site today, with RSS feeds from the National Hurricane Center, that will give you an instant picture of Atlantic/Caribbean/Gulf storm activity. I re-wrote some of the functions, and put a new face on the site. So, this is what it is today. IslaTravelers.com is a resource for travelers to and residents of Isla Mujeres and the Yucatan to find a wealth of current and pertinent weather information in one place.

IslaTravelers.com Advertising Policy

Advertising that you will see on this site:

There is none.

How do I advertise on IslaTravelers.com?

You don't.

What happened to the ads that used to be on this site?

I used to have AdSense ads on here, but I kept seeing ads for businesses that I would never support, like big condo developments on Isla Mujeres, dolphin swim businesses, big AI resorts in Cancun, and advertisements from assholes who will do anything for a buck, and therefore promote the condos, dolphinariums, and AI resorts. Those ads are long gone.

I also had some affiliate ads on the site, but I got tired of looking at that garbage, and I figured that everyone else was probably tired of it too. Those ads are also gone.

TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
800 PM EDT MON OCT 20 2014

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure
located over the southwestern Bay of Campeche have changed little
in organization since this afternoon. This system has the potential
to become a tropical cyclone during the next couple of days while it
moves slowly eastward across the southern Bay of Campeche. Later
in the week, the low is forecast to interact and possibly merge
with a frontal system over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico or
northwestern Caribbean Sea. An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance
aircraft is scheduled to investigate the disturbance tomorrow
afternoon, if necessary. Interests in the Yucatan Peninsula should
monitor the progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...50 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...60 percent.

2. A large non-tropical low is located over the far eastern Atlantic
Ocean a few hundred miles southeast of the Azores. This system is
producing winds to gale-force and could gradually acquire some
subtropical characteristics during the next day or so while
it moves slowly westward. Upper-level winds are forecast to become
less conducive for subtropical or tropical cyclone formation by late
Wednesday and development after that time is becoming less likely.
Additional information on this system can be found in High Seas
Forecasts issued by Meteo France.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...10 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...low...20 percent.

High Seas Forecasts issued by Meteo France can be found under WMO
header FQNT50 LFPW.
