Highlights near Quintana Roo

Skip Cancun and Head to Isla Mujeres

If you're not a fan of huge resorts and big hotels, Isla Mujeres is the perfect getaway from Cancun.

Just catch the ferry to the island located 13km to the northeast of Cancun. The ferry ride in itself is enjoyable, as you float over shallow reefs and turquoise water.

Once on Isla Mujeres, I recommend staying near North Beach with its white sand and abundance of bungalow accommodations. Rent bikes and pedal around the entire island and be sure to make your way to the lighthouse crawling with iguanas.

Hola, Could you tell me more about accommodations on the island? Can we book online? Check in anytime there?


We stayed at Na Balam, north coast end, and it was wonderful, but its been many years since i was there.


Stayed on the island during the Day of the Dead holiday, we had a wonderful time.


Just returned from the isla! Visited the island of women for the We Move Forward women's conference for International Women's Day! Met the folks who own these casitas ... http://joyceandbob.com/casitasdelmar/ so I'm hoping to stay here next year.
