Isla Mujeres

The The charm of Isla Mujeres cannot be measured by its size, since in just eight kilometers long and half wide, the traveler finds so many attractions to choose as a vacation spot that they soon forget the minuscule dimensions of the island.

Where is Isla Mujeres

North of Cancún, in the State of Quintana Roo, Isla Mujeres has positioned itself as a tourist alternative to the Riviera Maya, much more relaxed and allowing you to enjoy the same charms of the Caribbean Sea. A destination for honeymoons and honeymoon trips, Isla Mujeres welcomes travelers with good treatment throughout the year.

Locals call Isla Mujeres simply “Island” , and their friendly character invites you to chat with them about the local economy, based on tourism, diving and fishing.

As in Cozumel, the oceanographer Frenchman Jacques Cousteau fell in love with the seabed and the reef of Isla Mujeres. Guided by local diver Ramón Bravo, Cousteau immortalized underwater fauna and flora, and showed it to the whole world with his unforgettable reports.

History of Isla Mujeres

Legends say that the buccaneers left their women here when they went out to sail the sea searching for the Spanish ships that returned to Spain with the looted "treasures." Others claim that when the expedition of Francisco Hernández de Córdoba arrived in 1517, he observed that there were numerous sculptures of women who were given as an offering to the Mayan goddess Ixchel, worship of the fertility, which is why they assigned the name Isla Mujeres.

The Mayan ritual forced girls to go to the island to make an offering to the goddess of Ixchel , who in their transition to adulthood prayed to provide them with fertility.

What see and do in Isla Mujeres

Its transparent, warm, shallow waters full of life are paradise for divers, whether professional or amateur. Therefore, if we like to dive, the possibilities are endless, whether simply snorkeling on our own or with tours that take us by boat to caves and more remote areas of the beaches.

In the north is the most important town, the maritime entry point to Isla Mujeres and where restaurants and craft shops are concentrated, with Hidalgo Street being the axis along which life circulates. The walks along the Malecón and through the cobbled center make us feel in a homely and calm atmosphere.

How to get around Isla Mujeres

The best option is to use the bicycle as a method of transportation, and only leave taxis in cases of great hurry, since that the dimensions of the island invite slow rhythms. Even so, you can rent scooters or golf carts that have become an innate element of Isla Mujeres.

How to get to Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres has an airport in the southern part of the island with small plane flights especially from the airport from Cancun, which is the most appropriate option to arrive from another part of Mexico or the world. The other option is to arrive on the ferries that dock at the dock in the northern part of the island, where the largest population is. The boats leave from Cancun Hotel Zone, Puerto Sam for the car ferry (45 minutes journey), or from Puerto Juárez (there are also speed boats every half hour) with a time of twenty minutes to reach Isla Mujeres.

Near the northern end is the tourist ferry dock, where visitors disembark to enter the main settlement of the island. The city is home to shops, restaurants, bars, brightly painted houses and the Municipal Plaza. Upon arrival you can rent mopeds, golf carts, bicycles and taxis.
