Reviews of Beaches on Isla mujeres from News Sources
Isla Mujeres among top five island destinations: Mexico Daily News
Isla Mujeres in Quintana Roo was chosen one of the top five island destinations in Mexico and Central and South America by Travel + Leisure magazine’s World’s Best rankings.
The magazine described Isla Mujeres as “a relaxing spot that is perfect for visiting,” and “a peaceful place surrounded by coral reefs.”
#9 in Best Beaches in Mexico
Isla Mujeres is located off the northeastern coast of Cancún and could make for an ideal daytrip from the mainland, a long weekend getaway or a weeklong vacation. The beautiful beaches that line this island are characterized by white sand and framed by green, swaying palm trees and brilliantly blue water. Playa Norte is the main beach, which features calm waters, beach bars and chair and umbrella rentals. What's more, this island destination offers everything from snorkeling and scuba diving to Mayan ruins and a turtle farm that visitors can explore.
What Makes it Great: Bohemian, tranquil, utterly relaxed…Isla Mujeres is like a throwback to a gentler time, before tourism had its way with this gorgeous Caribbean coastline.
Many visitors come for the superior snorkeling and diving opportunities, others just love to chill out on the soft sands of Playa Norte, on the northern tip of the island. The warm, shallow waters are a hard-to-fathom shade of light turquoise and the beaches are crushed coral.
Pretend to be a castaway or gear up and explore some of the nearby dive spots, like the Ultrafreeze wreck or the wonderful MUSA underwater museum, with its submerged sculptures.
