Isla Mujeres, the Island of Women, where time passes slowly and your dream vacation becomes a reality. Isla is an island 8 miles off of Cancun’s coast. Isla Mujeres is only 5 miles long and half a mile wide with a downtown area of just four by six blocks.
I just got back from Cancun and found one of my favorite activities there. It is an excursion full of fun, relaxation, shopping, and snorkeling.
We headed out on our Catamaran at 10 am, first stop was the National Reef for snorkeling. We enjoyed ourselves by seeing sea turtles, stingrays and a barracuda. From there we took a relaxing 45 minute sail to see a shark. Yes I touch it ! Then got back on the catamaran and off to Downtown Isla Mujeres.
This was my first time to Isla and what a tease that was, now I want to spend more time there. I headed north a few blocks to see Playa Norte (the north beach). It was amazing, what a beautiful beach. We spent most of our time taking in the beauty of Playa Norte.
From there we sailed south for a traditional Mexican lunch and relaxing on the beach. The trip ended with a ride on the spinnaker.
