    Isla Mujeres (Island of Women) is a small island 8 miles off the Yucatan Peninsula. No one knows the origin of the island’s name but there are several theories including: a pilgrimage sight for ancient Mayan women; a tribute to the Mayan Goddess Ix Chel (a ruin to Ix Chel is on the island); because of the countless statues of women found on the island by Spanish explorers; and because pirates used to stash their women here.

    A passenger ferry at Puerto Juarez, north of Cancun departs for the island every 30-mins. It operates from about 6 AM to 10PM. Cost is $4 US with ample room for your bags. About should always be used for everyone is on island time. Numerous small boat operate out of the same docking area. They are faster, however don't use them during periods of high wind as it can get pretty rocky. They should cost about $15 US per person. A car ferry leaves from Punta Sam. Punta Sam is a little NE of Puerto Juarez. They make 5 or 6 trips per day based on demand. Hours are about 8AM to 8PM.

    Isla Mujeres is a small fishing village has a slow and relaxed pace – especially compared to Cancun. Attractions include Punta Sur, with a sculpture garden, small Maya temple, and the Cliff of the Dawn (the eastern-most point in Mexico). El Garrafon National Underwater Park is also located at the south end of the island. Several dive shops are available to lead scuba excursions to the many excellent dive locations around the island, and trips can also be booked to Contoy Island, a bird sanctuary.

      • Cancún
        Built almost from scratch in the 70's with the aim of competing with Acapulco as a world-class resort, Cancun has certainly succeeded. In fact, Cancun has surpassed it's aims and now brings in quite literally millions of visitors per year. It’s glossy, arguably cultureless depending, of course, on your perspective on the kind of shipped-in culture resorts attract, and utterly overbears the tiny fishing village you’d have found here had you turned up a few decades ago.

        Of course, if what you’re after is a pampering, the chance to lie on the beach, and plenty of cocktails in your expansive hotel pool, then you might well have picked the perfect spot. Sun is all but guaranteed, the beaches really are phenomenal, and Cancun is a great place to do very little on a fairly substantial budget or a tiny one, if you don’t mind hanging in hotels full of American spring break style binge drinkers.

        If you do have enough of the beachside luxury, there are more and more other options cropping up around Cancun. The Selvatica Canopy Adventure, for example, gives you the chance to swim in a sinkhole and fly through the jungle on a zip line. Offshore, numerous companies will take you diving into the depths, to explore wrecks or splash around with whale sharks, and PADI qualifying courses are up for grabs too. For those who can’t quite handle the deep blue, you can always stare down at the glittering colors from the surface with a snorkel, or absorb yourself in an easy access multitude of water sports.

        Head into the jungle on an off road vehicle, watch gymnasts and cirque de soleil performances, or explore one of the few ancient cultural options Cancun can boast, the mangrove engulfed El Ray Ruins, that date backs to the 10th century and contains numerous buildings, glyphs and fading paintings, not to mention plenty of resident iguanas and peacocks.

        Not all beaches, but what Cancun really boils down to is condensed, sunny luxury. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with that, but this purpose built beach city is unlikely to satisfy the culture vulture style traveler.

      • Puerto Morelos
        Puerto Morelos, unlike most of the Mayan Riviera, remains a sleepy little fishing village perfectly suited for lounging on the beach, grabbing a bite to eat in the dusty little village square or enjoying the excellent diving and fishing in the area.

        Lots of American ex-pats wander around and overall, Puerto Morelos feels a bit like going back in time. Situated right off the main highway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos remains an isolated get away spot that is well worth visiting.

        • Family Activities on the Isla Mujeres on the Mexican Isle
          Isla Mujeres, “Island of the women”. Only by reading this sentence, you start dreaming already about this paradise on earth, which is often forgotten by travelers in Cancun and this makes it appealing for family vacations. The island is in the Caribbean sea, around 13 kilometers off to the Yucatán Peninsula. The island is known for his authenticity and diversity in the community. From his incredible calm and crystal clear turquoise water to his endless white sand beaches, this is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation.When visiting the island, there are plenty of activities on the island and we have picked the top three to try when vacationing. You can visit the Turtle Farm, swim with Whale Sharks or embrace the Great Beach Walks.

          Visit Turtle Farm
          The Farm is located on Sac Bajo. The aquarium is a half privately funded sea turtle sanctuary and it houses a different piece of sea life from unbelievable and colorful tropical fish to seahorses and of course manta rays. This Farm shows once again how the islanders care about their island and how they want to preserve their heritage. From May to September, the giant turtles lay their eggs on the beach. The eggs are collected and placed in the Farm where they are safe and away from the predators. Somewhere in August and October, the turtles are released into the sea by the islanders and tourists. The turtles housed in the aquarium are the turtle that are sick and need medical attention. They are kept there until they are recovered to be released into the sea where they can start a new journey. This incredible project shows the Mayan beliefs and approach in life. Because the aquarium is popular among the animal lovers, please keep in mind that the Farm opens from 9am to 5pm. The entrance fee is 3$ per person and it is worth a visit.

          Swim with Whale Sharks
          The world second largest coral reef is just a few minutes away when you are on Isla Mujeres. The riviera Maya has won many hearts across the world for those in love with snorkeling, diving or just swimming in this crystal water with Whale sharks. This coral reef is a 1.5 away on a speedboat and this area is the spot to be in the summer from June to September as the Whale Sharks come to enjoy themselves here and the density is really incredible. But please remember not to touch them when swimming and this is even prohibited by law. Seeing these creatures up-close is a lifetime experience. The tour can be booked by different agencies on the Island and the official price according to the law is 125$. This tour includes pick-up from the hotel, the boat, life jacket, lunch, swimming with the Whale Sharks, snorkeling on your way back. It is advisable to book your tour two days prior. If you are traveling with children under 12 years old, we will recommend you to book a private tour which is around 1000$. This underwater attraction is by far the biggest one in the Mexican Caribbean.

          Great Beach Walks
          One of the pleasures of traveling to Isla Mujeres are the beach walks on the different beaches. Here is the list of different beaches: Playa Norte, Playa Posada, Playa Media Luna, Playa Paraiso, Playa Lancheros and Playa Indios. You can already plan your walks across the different beaches where the endless white sandy and the turquoise water are incredible. According to many travelers, Playa Norte is the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean because the water is crystal blue, the sand is crazy soft, the sky is pale and the palm trees gives the beach a feeling of serenity and it allows you to forget about life and any other difficulties. Life is beautiful and you are allowed to enjoy it.

          As you can see, the Isla Mujeres gives families the opportunity to enjoy a different side of Cancun and it offers amazing activities to choose from. Beside the three activities tested for you, remember to visit the underwater Museo (Musa Subacuatico De Arte), the ancient ruins (Punta Sur), Hacienda Mundaca (home to crocodiles), the natural park of Garrison and the picturesque setting of the Captain’s Dulce. End your vacation by going shopping to El Centro. This is what vacation is all about.

          happy traveling!
