Isla Mujeres attractions – hotels guide
Isla Mujeres, Mexico is a tiny, incredible, peacefull small island placed off the coast of Cancun. Its clear blue water, incredible coral reefs, sugar sand beaches, gently waving palm trees, migrating whale sharks, Mayan ruins, and giant iguanas that move over your view sometimes when you’re not looking make it one of the top destinations 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.

Walk Around Centro & Admire The Sea Wall Murals: As responsible travellers, we’re all for the preservation of our world’s ocean and we were delighted to see the ‘Sea Wall Murals’ of Isla Mujeres. These murals were created by various top street artists from around the world to raise awareness of marine species threatened by extinction in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
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
