TOP 10 THINGS TO DO
ON ISLA MUJERES
Isla Mujeres ... small in size, but big in character! Despite its size, there is so much to do on this tiny slice of paradise in the Mexican Caribbean.
Take a look at our top 10 things to do during your stay here on Isla Mujeres …
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. Wake up early, and head to Punta Sur, and be one of the first people to see the Mexican sun on a new day as it rises over the sea in this beautiful spectacle.
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.
Swim with Whale Sharks
In the months of late May - September, you can swim with the ocean’s gentle giants, the biggest fish in the world, Whale Sharks. This is an experience like no other on Isla Mujeres and definitely something that you don’t want to miss!
