Be one of the first people in Mexico to see the sun on a new day!
They say that Isla Mujeres’ Punta Sur (or south point) is the first place to see the sun's rays each morning in Mexico as it is the most eastern point in the country.

Watch a stunning sunset on Playa Norte
Isla Mujeres has some of the best sunsets in the world (in our opinion)! Head to Playa Norte (north beach) to watch one of nature’s biggest shows, a breath-taking sunset over the sea and Cancun! Watch as the sunset creates shades of pinks, red, orange and sometimes even purple in the sky. There is often live music at the beach clubs along Playa Norte, enjoy the stunning sunset with live music and a cocktail in your hand.
