If you can't take the time for a complete escape on Isla Mujeres, sail to serene Casa Rolandi aboard the Cocoon I for a leisurely Italian lunch or sunset dinner. The ship departs from Cancún's Embarcadero dock to Rolandi several times daily; reserve a ride and seaside café table in advance. Manager Giancarlo Frigerio greets guests with genuine glee; once he gets you settled at a linen-draped table on the over-water deck, you can order beef carpaccio drizzled with white truffle oil, then try cheese tortellini and veal lightly seasoned with Sambuca and saffron. Ask Giancarlo for a wine recommendation; he's always adding to the extensive list. You'll likely want a strong espresso with the silky panna cotta for dessert; otherwise, you might be too sleepily satisfied to make it back to the boat for the ride home.
