Isla Mujeres Vacations
Your Isla Mujeres vacation
Located across from Cancun, Isla Mujeres is only five miles long and a half-mile wide.
The island's restaurants serve fresh seafood as well as international and regional specialties. Bars offer live tropical and romantic music and Caribbean shows. Add to this Isla's many attractions and activities, and you've found the place for a perfect vacation.
Isla Mujeres is ringed by powdery-white sand beaches, the largest of which is Playa Norte. Here you can enjoy the sun, tropical breeze and calm, warm waters. The island's influence stretches over to Punta Sam, home of the archaeological site of El Meco and Boca Iglesias, the first convent in Mexico. This area is now developing as Costa Mujeres and will offer new options with fine, modern accommodations and facilities.
Options for water sports are unlimited and unparalleled, including windsurfing over calm Caribbean waters and snorkeling through beautiful coral landscapes at El Garrafón National Park or other surrounding reefs. Kayaks, water bicycles and boogie boards are available for rent at Playa Norte (North Beach).
The traditional boat rides are a great option to reach the main points of interest in the island and its surrounding areas. Boats leave from the small docks located on Rueda Medina Avenue, the city's main road. They are available throughout the entire day.
To see and enjoy every corner of the island and to mingle with its friendly residents, nothing beats a tour around Isla on a golf cart, moped or bicycle.
Many establishments in Isla Mujeres offer tours to the neighboring Isla Contoy, which has more than 60 different bird species along with many other plants and animals.
Other attractions include picturesque streets and alleys where you'll find handicrafts, jewelry and other merchandise from all over Mexico.
