Isla Mujeres, Mexico is a tiny, beautiful, peacefull tiny island located off the coast of Cancun. Its bright blue water, amazing coral reefs, sun yellow sand beaches, calmly moving palm trees, migrating whale sharks, Mayan ruins, and giant iguanas that move over your view sometimes when you’re not looking make it one of the top travel destinations in the Riviera Maya.
Conceived by Jason deCaires Taylor, Isla Mujeres is home to the largest underwater museum on earth. The clear waters off Isla Mujeres make a great place to scuba dive or snorkel while seeing how thousands of underwater sculptures change in time in regards to coral growth and marine interaction. The scope of the project is mind blowing and the combination of art and marine conservation is great to see.
Feel the calmness and harmony of a space specially designed to pamper our guests; our hotel is the perfect example of a glamorous and classy decoration, where we take care even of the minimal details to ensure you to feel like at home. Read extra info at Isla Mujeres.
Snorkelling in Isla Mujeres: If you are a beginner and haven’t done much snorkelling in the past, the best place to snorkel is El Farito. El Farito, to the north of the island, is shallow and perfect for beginners to see schools of colourful fish. Los Machones is more suited to advance snorkellers with a depth of 35 – 40 feet. Other amazing snorkel sites include MUSA , Garrafon Natural Reef Park and Isla Contoy. For more snorkelling and diving, don’t miss Mexico’s most popular island and all of the incredible things to do in Cozumel! Experience The Zocalo: Every Mexican town has a central square called a Zocalo (it’s one of the best things to do in Mexico City as well). I recommend visiting the Zocalo on Isla Mujeres in the evening, as you’ll find food vendors selling tasty local Mexican street food. Plus, there’s music, entertainment and dancing.
Isla Mujeres has tons of little shops and stalls to explore, during your stay on the island. From local art to cold drinks, to traditional clothing, there is something for everyone. While you can definitely find something worthy of bringing back to your friends and family, beware of inflated prices, presented to foreigners. Pushy vendors can sometimes charge more than triple the price of souvenirs to tourists, however, you can usually bargain for a better deal. If you have never bargained before, give it a try! You never know what kind of treasures you might leave with. Garaffon Park is a great place to visit if you are traveling with children. This adventure park offers a variety of activities for you and your family to enjoy, all day long, such as zip lining, kayaking, swimming with dolphins, and bike riding. The cheapest packages start at 89 USD per person, which includes your ferry ticket, breakfast, lunch, and basic access to snorkeling and zip lining activities. If you’re feeling more adventurous, the most expensive package is 209 USD, including VIP access to breakfast and lunch, access to activities, and admission to Punta Sur, which you will read about later on.
