Enrique's Dock eBook.jpg

Enrique's Dock is my latest book - eighteen months in the making. This is the story of the world surrounding an iconic marina on the Mexican island of Isla Mujeres, located on the east coast of the country off the Yucatan Peninsula. Enrique Lima is a giant of a man who has lived on this small island since the mid 1960s. Under the guidance of Enrique's father, Jose de Jesus Lima, tourism in the Yucatan flourished. Lic. Lima's friendship with the Mexican president and other high government officials brought attention to the area, which translated into tourism promotion of the Cancun and Isla Mujeres areas. Following in his father's footsteps, Enrique has shepherded the growth of the island as he became the biggest influence in its development and the establishment of the area as an ecological preserve. One of the many attractions of Isla Mujeres is the marina he built formally named Club de Yates, but commonly known among the biggest names in the world of sport fishing as Enrique's Dock. In this place men and women who love to fish come every year for its unequaled sailfish and white marlin run. And in the summer, when the fishing slows down and some of the tourists go home, there is a vibrant eco-tourism trade where SCUBA divers can explore the wonders that lie beneath the surface of the Caribbean Sea, or swim with gentle whale sharks for the thrill of a lifetime.This book chronicles some of the great fishing tournaments and sailing regattas that take place, and the men and women who have helped to turn this paradisiac island into a world class tourist destination.
        Isla Mujeres is said to be the safest tourist destination in all of the Caribbean. And if you are a sun lover, sports person, or just need a place to kick back and relax, you will
surely want to visit this place yourself after reading this book.
