When you’re ready for a more laid-back day of exploration and relaxation, spend a day at Isla Mujeres. Located just 20 minutes by ferry from Cancún, this small island is a lush tropical paradise. It is said that the island was once the sanctuary for Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of fertility, reason, medicine, happiness and the moon. Since then, it has served as a haven for pirates who legends say used its shores to keep their women safe and treasure buried. It was also a thriving fishing village with an abundance of marine life.

At Isla Mujeres you can spend hours exploring the amenities of Garrafon Natural Reef Park. Take a kayak out to explore the open sea, snorkel in the calm waters, take a dip in the freshwater infinity pool overlooking Cancún Bay, or take a deserved siesta at the water’s edge in the Hammock Garden.

This was one of the top 10 rated beaches in the world and we learned several of those corona beach commercials were filmed at this location. The water is calm and the depth does not drastically change

The approach by boat lets you see the beautiful aqua colours of the ocean as you approach the island. It was a great way to spend the day, the highlight being the swim with the dolphins. The food was tasty at the restaurant, too.

We love the Westin Lagunamar and its convenient location to shopping, restaurants and beautiful beaches. We found the day trip to Isla Mujeres a break from the luxury of Lagunamar. Driving a gold cart across the island was exhilarating and fun. We stopped numerous places yo take pictures. The cemetery by the sea at South Point is wonderful as are the the Turtle Habitat and Sculpture Garden We ate lunch outdoors at North Point and enjoyed the mild surf compared to Cancun and excellent snorkeling

i would definitely recommend taking a catamaran to Isla Mujeres. Sailing across the gulf on a beautiful day enjoying the warm sunshine and snorkeling in the clear blue waters, seeing the exotic fish and then spending time shopping or exploring this tropical island is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime !

What a great opportunity to explore nearby areas, try local food, get some shopping done and ride around the entire island on a golf cart! We took our kids and enjoyed every minute including the ferry to the island!

Isla Mujeres By Water was a fabulous excursion where swimming with the dolphins topped created lasting family memories. Service at Westin Lagunarmar has always provided outstanding customer service and has not been surpassed by any other resort we have visited thus far.

A trip to Isla Mujeres by water taxi is a must do activity when visiting Cancun. The trip over via boat is spectacular and when you arrive make sure to rent a golf cart. We traveled all over the island and had a blast! Shopping, site seeing, hanging out on the beach and eating the best ceviche ever.

I would highly recommend a day trip to Isla Mujeres. It is very easy to take the ferries and a very relaxing day driving around on golf cart. Lots of bars and great views.

Highly recommend going by catamaran, with a stop along the way for snorkeling and swimming. Spending time as a couple or family on Isla Mujeres is great, but we had a blast on the boat.

I would like to recommend a day trip to isla mujeres. The concierge at the hotel gave us all the information we needed to have a full day there, and a map. We took a lovely ferry over. Its a quick ride. We rented a jeep right in town and explored the island. There is a beautiful beach at the north end of the island. We ate a traditional fish dish called tikken xic, cooked in a huge oven at a beach club. There are many places to explore on the island. it is a full, fun day.
