Eight miles from Cancun across the Bahia de Mujeres lies Isla Mujeres, a tiny paradise island of white sand beaches, clear and calm Caribbean waters, warm hospitality, and a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. This island jewel is only five miles long and a half-mile wide, with the small fishing village by the same name located at the north end. A romantic and restful destination, Isla Mujeres offers hotel accommodations from the simple to the luxurious, fine international as well as local and Mayan cuisine, and nightspots where you can enjoy the romance of island music and dancing. When planning your stay, be sure to check with EasyToBook.com for great discounts on Isla Mujeres hotels.
For the adventurous, all water sports are readily available including windsurfing, kayaking, and water cycling. Dive in the waters of Manchones reef to see not only the magical underwater life but also the Cross of the Bay, a thirty-foot tall bronze sculpture planted into the reef as a tribute to all who died at sea. Or take a short boat ride to Isla Contoy to observe the great diversity of vegetation and wildlife including more than sixty species of birds. The natural beauty of the area, beneath and above the water, is endless. And don’t miss the island’s sea turtle farm at the southern end of the island, where you can learn about breeding and rehabilitating these endangered creatures.
