Isla Mujeres, Mexico is a tiny, amazing, tranquil little island located off the coast of Cancun. Its bright blue water, incredible coral reefs, white 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 best travel locations in the Riviera Maya.
Love sea turtles? So do we, and that’s why we always stop by the Turtle Farm in Isla Mujeres. Since large sea turtles have made Isla Mujeres their breeding ground for generations, the Turtle Farm gathers up the eggs it finds along the beaches and incubates them at the Turtle Farm thereby greatly increasing their chances of survival. Depending on the time of year you’re there, you can see hundreds of turtles in the tanks growing up in the large tanks around the property. There is a great celebration the day they’re released back into the wild.
Mesmerizing views and a warm atmosphere that invite you to relax are the main marks of excellence of this elegant boutique hotel. With a helpful and courteous staff; Casa de los Suenos will completely fulfill every need and wish that you have. See more details at https://hotelcasasuenos.com/.
MUSA (Underwater Museum of Art in Isla Mujeres): One of the most popular activities in Isla Mujeres is to visit MUSA, (Museo Subacuatico de Arte). You can tour the underwater museum by glass bottom boat to enjoy over 500 sculptures by the creator Jason deCaires Taylor. For a better experience, and to get closer to the sculptures, head on a snorkelling tour or go scuba diving. MUSA was created to encourage visitors to visit an alternative area around Isla Mujeres taking the pressure off the nearby reef. Underwater sculpture parks are created as tourist attractions, but they are also used as artificial reefs to help promote the growth of coral and the return of more marine life. A visit to underwater sculptures (by the same artist) is also one of the top things to do in Grenada, and the Bahamas.
Isla Mujeres has tons of little shops and stalls to explore, during your stay on the island. From local art to cold drinks, to traditional clothing, there is something for everyone. While you can definitely find something worthy of bringing back to your friends and family, beware of inflated prices, presented to foreigners. Pushy vendors can sometimes charge more than triple the price of souvenirs to tourists, however, you can usually bargain for a better deal. If you have never bargained before, give it a try! You never know what kind of treasures you might leave with. Garaffon Park is a great place to visit if you are traveling with children. This adventure park offers a variety of activities for you and your family to enjoy, all day long, such as zip lining, kayaking, swimming with dolphins, and bike riding. The cheapest packages start at 89 USD per person, which includes your ferry ticket, breakfast, lunch, and basic access to snorkeling and zip lining activities. If you’re feeling more adventurous, the most expensive package is 209 USD, including VIP access to breakfast and lunch, access to activities, and admission to Punta Sur, which you will read about later on.
