Get to Know Laid-Back Isla Mujeres
The stunning Isla Mujeres, enveloped by gorgeous Caribbean Sea, lies just off the coast of Cancun and can be reached by a short ferry ride from the mainland. As a natural paradise surrounded by tranquil waters, the island was aptly considered by the Mayans as a sanctuary for Ixchel, the goddess of fertility and happiness.
This tropical oasis charms visitors with its natural beauty and laid-back vibe. Known for white sand beaches and peaceful, turquoise waters, Isla Mujeres is the perfect place for a relaxing escape in the Mexican Caribbean. The island is small at 7km long, making it easy for guests to visit the town centre’s shops and restaurants, and enjoy the dreamy beaches dotted around the island like sparkling Playa Norte.
Aside from lounging in a heavenly setting, there’s plenty to do for those who like a little exploration on their vacation. The calm and crystal-clear waters make for amazing snorkeling and scuba diving experiences, boasting celebrated spots like the Manchones and El Farito reefs, as well as the unique MUSA underwater sculpture park!
You can also get to know the waters from a different angle on a catamaran charter, or, back on dry land jump on a bicycle and head to the Mayan vestiges on the South point of the island. Set the alarm to catch one of the awesome sunrises that grace Isla Mujeres each morning, or admire the evening´s sunset colors with a cocktail.
