HOW TO GET TO ISLA MUJERES?
Being an island there is no road access to get to the island and for that reason it is necessary to take a ferry. There are several different departure points from Cancun, the crossing lasts 30 minutes and the disembarkation takes place at the maritime terminal that is located in the center, right next to the best beach on the island which is Playa Norte. I suggest you sit in the open part of the boat in the open air there you will feel the breeze on your face. In addition, you will see how little by little the buildings of Cancun move away and how the sea changes the different shades of turquoise blue, it is impressive.
History of Isla Mujeres
The coasts of the island were the first that the Spanish explorers observed in Mexico in their expedition of 1519. The island is the first place in the entire Mexican republic where the first rays of the sun arrive. And of the few places in the Mexican Caribbean from where You can watch the sun when it sets in the sea at sunset. That is why I suggest you if it is possible for you to stay at least one or two days on the island.
Under water museum
There is also the Under Water Museum. This Museaum has a total of 500 works built of marine concrete that are already artificial reefs that many fish have made their home. It is a beautiful tour whether snorkeling, diving or glass bottom boats. It is not very deep, it measures 8 meters and a lot of people want to see the Volkswagen sunk.
Every bit of Isla Mujeres makes it a unique, magical and charming place that has managed to captivate travelers from all over the world. This post is just a little bit about how much the island offers to each of its visitors.
WHAT EXPERIENCES WILL YOU FIND?
It is a small island and one of the most traditional tours is to rent a golf cart and tour the island, they also rent scooters. We rent the golf cart and the truth is an experience that I highly recommend. I’m sure you will love it and you will want to go around more than once since the island is small. I recommend that you drive slowly, although the cars are slow, there are some that go at a considerable speed, you will avoid accidents and enjoy the landscape, you can also stop at Punta Sur, at the other end of the island.
THE ISLA MUJERES CLIFF
You will love the cliff and take the best photos of your vacation, in addition to visiting the Sculpture Garden. I suggest that you visit the center until the end since you have returned the vehicle since
WALK THROUGH THE CENTER OF THE ISLAND
The center is pedestrianized, there is the commercial area, with several stores to buy your souvenirs and restaurants for all tastes. Without a doubt it is a place that you must visit, the architecture and the calm style compared to the city. Isla Mujeres is a destination to relax and forget about the noise of the city.
