ENJOY THIS TIP FROM OUR JOURNEYWOMAN COMMUNITY:
“Isla Mujeres (The Island of Women) is a hidden little gem off the coast of Cancun just a short 25-minute ferry ride from the mainland. This quiet quaint little island filled with the friendliest of locals has a lot to offer and is one of my favourite places to travel solo or with a few friends. This gorgeous tiny Island boasts several white sand beaches surrounded by the calmest of turquoise waters. It’s filled with a wealth of authentic Mexican cuisine, all signs of history and traditions passed from Mayan heritage and generations. Exotic smells and aromas fill the air along the narrow cobblestone streets in Playa Norte.
Don’t be afraid to rent a golf cart as its one of the main means of transportation around island it takes about one hour make sure to stop for a custom cocktail and live music at “The Spot,” take a walk through the Punta Sur Sculture Garden stunning view of the ocean and check out the sea turtle sanctuary.
All are welcome to many of the hotels around the island – you don’t have to be a guest, so make an adventurous day and see all the beautiful properties and people. Experience a great lunch, stunning views, sunbathing and a complimentary paddleboard at Casa de los Sueños and end your day with dinner, dancing and live music by some of the island most talented people. Don’t forget to give OG the dog a cuddle at El Patio. I can’t say enough about how much I love this island it feels like home every time I visit.”
