Hidden behind Cancun’s lavishing resorts lays Isla Mujeres or the ‘Island of Women’, an island approachable only by sea and uninteresting for high-class tourism. What makes this island special is the incredible atmosphere, the untouched nature, beautiful beaches, happy and welcoming people, reggaeton and salsa parties that last long into the night.
Although Isla Mujeres is quite a small island, there are numerous opportunities for sightseeing and active holiday. You can literally travel to any point of the island by bicycle. For the skilled divers, the south shores of the island are the right spot to do it. At the most southern point there is a Mayan archaeological site worth visiting. The authenticity of this island makes the visit worthwhile, since this is an oasis in the desert of hotel chains and generic holidays.
