Isla Mujeres Hotels

Swim with native marine life in designated nature reserves, relax in lavish spas that overlook the glittering sea, and dine in elegant restaurants where freshly caught seafood is the highlight of the menu. Isla Mujeres is Cancun’s hidden gem, a little slice of idyllic landscape where the hotels are glamorous and unhurried and exotic beach clubs offer upmarket luxury to discerning travelers.

Things to see

If you ever plan on swimming with dolphins, where better than the aqua blue waters off the coast of Isla Mujeres. Learn to greet your new aquatic friend with a wave, a handshake, and a kiss, before taking to the water for a rapid run across the waves. This experience offers hours of fun for adults and kids alike, getting to know these remarkable animals in their natural habitat. Leave the built-up resort towns of the island behind and find your way to Garrafon Reef Park in the south. Edged by dense jungle foliage on land, and sloping white sands that ease into the sea, it’s a tranquil environment best enjoyed by relaxing. It’s not all laid-back here though. When you’ve taken in the scenery, why not view it from a different angle by flying across the ocean on a rapid zip line, pedaling a mountain bike along winding trails, or viewing the shoreline from a brightly colored kayak as you hunt for hidden bays and isolated caves. The waters of the Costa Occidental de Isla Mujeres National Park are crystal clear, affording wonderful views of iridescent reefs and darting fish. Discover this protected marine park on a snorkeling trip by catamaran or speedboat or join a scuba diving trip for a total immersion experience.

Hotels in Isla Mujeres

There’s a great choice of luxury hotels in Isla Mujeres where you can experience outstanding views over the sparkling blue Caribbean Sea or fabulous vistas of sprawling resorts. These high-end hotels know a thing or two about luxury. Typically, their rooms are stylish and chic, boasting private balconies, lavish decor, beautiful bathrooms with complimentary toiletries, and flat-screen televisions. There are some affordable inner-island hotels too, tucked away down jumbled narrow streets. The rooms might not be as decadent, and you might miss out on far-reaching views, but their central locations makes them the perfect choice for discovering the island on foot.

Where to stay

Isla Mujeres is a tranquil tourist destination with all the beauty and little of the chaos typical of Cancun resorts. Silvery white sands cover the sloping sands, dotted here and there with fringes of palm trees and thatched piers. Hotels in Isla Mujeres lie along the picturesque coast boasting beachside access and private swimming pools set into fabulous sun terraces. Around them, narrow streets lined by whitewashed houses, ramshackle shops, and tourist bars cover the northern end of the island, leading back to the beaches with their driftwood bars.

How to get to Isla Mujeres

While Isla Mujeres does have its own airport, it’s not particularly big. Most travelers are likely to arrive a little further south on the mainland at Cancun International Airport before making the trip to the island by ferry or private boat transfer. The island isn’t very big, around half a mile across at its widest point, so it’s unlikely you’d need to hire a car for the duration of your stay.
