For such a small, sleepy place, there’s a wide variety of things to do in Isla Mujeres — an island located off the coast of Cancun in Mexico.
Translated from Spanish, Isla Mujeres means the “Island of Women”, named after the Mayan Goddess Ixchel, the Goddess of fertility and happiness.
There are numerous incredible places to visit in Mexico, but make sure you add Isla Mujeres to the list!
A quick, 20-minute ferry ride from Cancun will whisk you away to an island paradise of warm turquoise waters, swaying palm trees and white silky sand beaches.
Isla Mujeres is perfect for a day trip but we recommend staying longer, especially if you want to escape the party scene and all of the crazy things to do in Cancun. This is the place to come to enjoy a relaxing island break.
