Playa Norte, Isla Mujeres

4.6
The tropical paradise of Playa Norte occupies a scenic spot on an island once considered the sanctuary of Mayan goddess Ix Chel. Shaded by tall palm trees, the soft white sand provides enough space for playing sports or hosting a party, while the turquoise sea remains as calm as a lake. Snorkel or swim in the inviting shallow water, which teems with fish and other colorful marine creatures. Beach bars provide refreshments and rent out lounge chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Several larger eateries along the water will give you access to changing facilities with any purchase of food and drink.

  • The place is beautiful but understand what they are doing works for better exploitation of the site. The beauty, the color of the water and the laidback makes the amazing location, but the excess of tourists can get in the way.
