It’s difficult to look at pictures of Isla Mujeres without immediately pulling out your credit card and booking a flight.
We totally get that, and we’re not here to discourage you.
This island is about eight miles away from Cancun via boat, but once you arrive, you’ll truly feel like you’re in another world.
A former fishing village, Isla Mujeres is definitely calmer than its neighbor, Cancun. A scooter, bike or golf cart is the best way to travel around the island, though it’s also easy to walk to most spots.
There are only a few places in the world you can swim with whale sharks, and Isla Mujeres is one of them.
This once-in-a-lifetime adventure is only available June through September, so make sure to plan your trip accordingly.
One of the most luxurious all-inclusive hotels on the island is the Mia Reef. Located on the edge of the island, most rooms have breathtaking views of the Caribbean sea below.
