Isla Mujeres Founding Day

No reviews, be the first!

Get a taste of island life, Mexican-style, when you visit the small Caribbean island of Isla Mujeres located just 8 miles (13 km) off the coast of Cancun. Isla Mujeres is just a 15-minute ferry ride from Cancun and the island is small enough that it can be easily explored in a day. The downtown area is located on the northern end of Isla Mujeres and extends out to Playa Norte (North Beach), the best beach on the island. On the southern end of the island you’ll find the Garrafón Reef Park, a popular destination for snorkeling and scuba diving, a sea turtle sanctuary, lighthouse and the ruins of a Mayan temple.
