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.

  • Outstanding beach, but sometimes can get a little crowded, busy. Always something going on. Chimbo's a great place to get a chair, drink, etc.  more »
  • I swore the photos of these beaches were photoshopped until I got there, amazing isn't the word they look better in person.  more »
  • The water there is very at ease, calm, and there is more space to swim or simply being in the water. Very nice.
