Top Reasons to Go to Isla Mujeres
Getting away from the crowd: Although Isla Mujeres is just across the bay from Cancún, the peace and quiet make it seem like another universe.
Exploring the southeastern coast: Bump along in a golf cart where craggy cliffs meet the blue Caribbean.
Eating freshly grilled seafood: For some reason it always tastes best under a beachfront palapa (thatch roof) at lovely Playa Norte.
Diving with "sleeping sharks": They dwell in the underwater caverns off Isla.
Taking a boat trip to Isla Contoy: On this even smaller island, more than 70 species of birds make their home.
