Visit Isla Mujeres is one of the best decisions you can make in your life, located just 15 minutes from Cancun by ferry and only 7 km long.
Best of all, is that being so close to Cancun, you can visit it on your own for a whole day or on a private tour. You also have the opportunity to stay on the Island if you want to know it in its entirety.
That’s why we present to you 4 reasons why you should visit (and fall in love) Isla Mujeres during the summer.
Discover Playa Norte
It is not to brag, but Playa Norte is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Latin America and the world; this is due to its white sand, crystal clear sea, and perfect swimming. Unlike the beaches in Cancun, many restaurants on the beach can rent you a lounge chair if you eat with them. A Tiki Xic fish and a good beer are the perfect complements for a day of sun, beach, and relaxation.
Many people come with their yachts to the shores of Playa Norte to spend the day there; the right thing for you is that you visit the beach on your own; is that they always have loud music; It will help you get into the mood very soon and might even invite you to party with them.
Discover the Island with a gulf cart or motorcycle
Isla Mujeres is not characterized by having too many cars, being so small, and with narrow streets, motorcycles are ubiquitous among locals. So by not having heavy car traffic, it allows golf carts to travel without any problems.
The places to rent the carts are straightforward to find; as soon as you get off the port, you will see several; however, we recommend that you venture a bit between the streets of the center. The premises that are far from the port are usually cheaper with the rents.
The premises offer different times for rent, which range from 1 hour, 2 hours or all day. Depending on what you want to do, it is time you should rent.
- 1 hour: If you only want to tour the Island with few stops, this is your option
- 2 hours: You want to travel the Island, but you also want to get off to take some photos, visit the beach and walk through Punta Sur. This is the best option.
- All-day: If you want to do all of the above but also want to stop eating, go to the bars or have a good time on all the beaches, this is the ideal option for you.
Garrafon Park is the only natural park on Isla Mujeres with one of the most important reefs in the region. You can get there on your own in a taxi or golf cart from the Island (We do not recommend walking because it is far from the center). The good news is that you can also get there from Cancun, with a private ferry that takes you from the Marina Aquatours to the Park.
In Garrafon Park, you can have the best snorkel in Isla Mujeres, kayak, fly in the only zip line that passes over the Caribbean Sea in Quintana Roo, and finally, the Temazcal, an experience to meet your soul and spirit.
Beyond the activities, the Park also offers unlimited buffet services and an open bar; what we recommend is that you propose to spend all your day in this Park so that you enjoy it to the fullest.
There is a park near Garrafón, Dolphin Discovery; this dolphin habitat will allow you to swim with them. Fortunately, there are packages where you can visit both on the same day.
So if your dream is to swim with dolphins and you are interested in Garrafón Park, take the opportunity!
The jewel in the crown of Isla Mujeres, these cliffs are the end of the Island, and they are also exceptional; here is the temple to the goddess Ixchel, the only archaeological site on the Island.
Besides this; In Punta Sur, the first rays of light arriving from the entire Mexican republic, it could be said that Isla Mujeres welcomes the sun to visit Mexico.
