5 top attractions in Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres, Mexico is a small, incredible, quiet tiny island placed off the coast of Cancun. Its bright blue water, fabulous coral reefs, sugar sand beaches, gently waving palm trees, migrating whale sharks, Mayan ruins, and giant iguanas that move over your foot sometimes when you’re not looking make it one of the top travel locations in the Riviera Maya.

Conceived by Jason deCaires Taylor, Isla Mujeres is home to the largest underwater museum on earth. The clear waters off Isla Mujeres make a great place to scuba dive or snorkel while seeing how thousands of underwater sculptures change in time in regards to coral growth and marine interaction. The scope of the project is mind blowing and the combination of art and marine conservation is great to see.

Snorkelling in Isla Mujeres: If you are a beginner and haven’t done much snorkelling in the past, the best place to snorkel is El Farito. El Farito, to the north of the island, is shallow and perfect for beginners to see schools of colourful fish. Los Machones is more suited to advance snorkellers with a depth of 35 – 40 feet. Other amazing snorkel sites include MUSA , Garrafon Natural Reef Park and Isla Contoy. For more snorkelling and diving, don’t miss Mexico’s most popular island and all of the incredible things to do in Cozumel! Experience The Zocalo: Every Mexican town has a central square called a Zocalo (it’s one of the best things to do in Mexico City as well). I recommend visiting the Zocalo on Isla Mujeres in the evening, as you’ll find food vendors selling tasty local Mexican street food. Plus, there’s music, entertainment and dancing.

Experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with dolphins, sea lions, manatees, and sting rays, in the warm waters of Isla Mujeres, while learning about each one from the knowledgeable marine mammal specialists. Dolphin Discovery offers several exciting packages ranging from 95 USD to 205 USD per person, each including experiences that will last you a lifetime. For those of you who enjoy the finer things in life, Dolphin Discovery also offers a VIP Dolphin Lounge, where you can cool off in the infinity pool and enjoy a seafood buffet and thirst-quenching drinks from the bar. Punta Sur is a popular tourist site, located on the southern tip of the island, 65 feet (19.8 meters) above sea level and boasting incredible views of Cancun in the distance. While the views alone are simply majestic, Punta Sur also has a sculpture park that was created to embody the Mayan Civilization. If you choose to visit Punta Sur and the southern tip of Isla Mujeres, make sure to bring your camera!
