Isla Mujeres

Tiny municipal seat of an eponymous island, each season Isla Mujeres swells to bursting with international tourists coming here to swim, snorkel, dive, fish, and sail. In a town housing just 10,000 permanent residents, an Isla Mujeres vacation can be a relaxing and unhurried experience, allowing you to discover a tropical paradise at your own pace. Curiously named "Island of Women," this spot remains a favorite for visitors interested in spending most of their holiday outdoors. Busloads of day-trippers from nearby Cancun can spoil the atmosphere in the morning, but by late afternoon the crowds disappear and the town returns to its slower pace of life. Take a look at our Mexico holiday maker website to refine the details of your trip to Isla Mujeres.

Where to stay in Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres brims with accommodations catering to visitors looking to indulge in the region's excellent diving options. Budget-conscious travelers can find a selection of hostels and small guesthouses--many of which only accept payment in cash--just back from the beach. A larger selection of mid-range and luxury hotels offer views over the water, with the northern tip of the island serving as the most popular place to stay. Make sure you book your accommodations well in advance if visiting in peak season, from December to April.
