A Beach Holiday Paradise

The beaches you'll find on your holiday in Isla Mujeres are second to none. If you thought that holidays to Mexico were centred around the beaches of Cancun, you could easily have missed out on what Isla Mujeres has to offer. The white sandy beaches here with the crystal-clear sea that laps leisurely against the shores provide a real Caribbean feel. Added to that, there are many and varied food and drink options, which mean you barely have to move from your perfect spot on the beach. There really is nothing quite like it.

Playa Norte is perhaps the best beach you'll find on your holidays to Isla Mujeres – considered to be the most beautiful beach in the area (if not the entire country), this is where you can really unwind and relax.

Under The Sea…

If you love scuba diving, or you just want to give it a go on your holidays to Isla Mujeres, Mexico, you'll have no end of options to captivate you. One of the most exciting has to be MUSA. This is a clever project that was commissioned to counteract the effect of climate change on reef systems and oceans in the area (and across the world). It is a collection of evocative sculptures under the water, which change organically as coral and marine life grow around it.

Isla Mujeres’ Wildlife

Getting to know the wildlife when you are on your Isla Mujeres holidays is a must. Not only is it spectacular, but the resort has made the experience incredibly easy for you, offering you the chance to visit a part privately-funded, part governmental sea turtle sanctuary. Here, you will get to see the incredible animals up close and personal and will learn more about how they grow and thrive. Not only that, but you will also have the chance to see many different tropical fish, manta rays, and seahorses, to name just a few of the animals being cared for here.

The Big City Awaits

When booking holidays to Isla Mujeres in Mexico, you might be tempted to take a look at Cancun and compare the two resorts. However, they really can't be compared – Cancun is loud and proud, pulsing with nightclubs and huge resorts. Isla Mujeres is quiet and peaceful, and the kind of place where you get to know people and they get to know you; by the time you leave, you will have made many friends.

However, if the big city is calling you, even just for a night to see what it is all about, you'll find that it is just a 20-minute boat ride away, so you can have the best of both worlds and still return to somewhere peaceful you can call home.

A Romantic Spot

For a romantic getaway, holidays in Isla Mujeres can't be beaten. For honeymooners or couples who just want to spend some quality time together, Isla Mujeres is the place to go. The beaches, unspoilt and picturesque, are ideal for long walks together holding hands, or for lazing together in the sun.

The hotels are magical, too, with all the luxuries you could wish for in the five-star resorts. All-inclusive options mean you can forget about the world for a week or two and concentrate on one another.

Food Glorious Food

For a relatively small location, the choice when it comes to restaurants, bars, and cafes is astounding. From traditional Mexican food to Italian, Mediterranean, French, Caribbean, and even American, every taste is catered for.

Take your time wandering through the streets to find a quaint local restaurant or bar, and you might find that you love it so much you return night after night.

For the ultimate in beautiful, romantic, friendly destinations, booking holidays to Isla Mujeres has to be your first choice. It is as close to paradise as it is possible to get, yet its location means that you are never far away from exciting and memorable places to visit and new experiences. The stunning beaches, amazing food, and laid-back vibe combine to make this the holiday of a lifetime.
