Isla Mujeres, Mexico is a little, amazing, sleepy small island placed off the coast of Cancun. Its clear blue water, spectacular coral reefs, white sand beaches, calmly moving palm trees, migrating whale sharks, Mayan ruins, and giant iguanas that move over your foot sometimes when you’re not looking make it one of the best travel locations in the Riviera Maya.
Playa Norte (North Beach) is by far the most popular and is often rated one of the best in the Caribbean. Playa Norte is just minutes from downtown, and the palm trees and luxurious white sand make Playa Norte muy hermosa. Playa Norte has almost no current, and kids and adults can wade pretty far out and the water will only reach their waist. Playa Posada, found along the west side isn’t as crowded, however the water isn’t as clear, and Playa Media Luna is a beautiful crescent shaped beach but the water can be rough.
Based in Isla Mujeres, near Punta Sur and the center of the island, Casa de Los Suenos has an enviable location. Right next to the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean, you will be able to appreciate the sunsets of this paradise from the comfort of your suite. It’s a fact that you will experience a memorable vacation in this marvelous destination. Enjoy a dream vacation in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. See extra info at Hotel Isla Mujeres.
Get Underwater While Scuba Diving: Isla Mujeres has some of the best scuba diving in the Caribbean. Here you can enjoy some incredible caves, and an abundance of sealife – eels, groupers, snappers, turtles, parrotfish and numerous corals. A unique experience is diving at the Cave of the Sleeping Sharks where on the bottom of the ocean a large group of reef, bull, and nurse sharks can be seen sleeping. At a depth of 20-30 meters, this dive site is recommended for advanced divers. Other popular sites include the Machones Reef (800m in length), Tavos Reef, Media Luna, Punta Sur and the site of the Navy Boat Shipwreck (at a depth of 21m). Check out Squalo Adventures for scuba diving trips.
You will realize once you step off the ferry, just how small Isla Mujeres really is. In fact, the only way to get around the island is by golf cart! Sure, there are plenty of beaches and shops within walking distance of the ferry dock, however, renting a golf cart for the day allows you to drive around the whole island in a short amount of time, and get you from point A to point B, much faster. There are quite a few different golf cart shops around the island for you to choose from, that are all affordable and convenient. One of the top-rated shops is Isla Mujeres Golf Cart Rentals. Here’s what one visitor had to say about her experience with this particular shop: “This is the ONLY company you should be renting with on Isla! Alex is the absolute best! Our golf cart stalled in the middle of a downpour and he personally came to get us, drove us to grab dinner and then followed up when our cart was ready. Completely unexpected and exceeded our expectations 100%. Thanks, Alex and the crew at Pepe’s, we will be back!!!” – Nikki
