History of Isla
Isla & Cancun Links
Life in this former fishing village is more
laid-back and tranquil than Cancun, but that doesn't mean there
isn't plenty to do, it just means you can
do nothing at all or fill your days with shopping, snorkeling,
swimming and sunning. Our Things to Do section is divided into
two parts - Fun in the Water and
Fun on the Land.
Fun in the Water page and
Isla Mujeres offers water activities for all ages.
Beautiful white sand beaches where you can rent water
toys, kayaks and snorkeling gear. Diving and snorkeling
in the crystal clear turquoise waters. Sailing, fishing,
swimming with Dolphins and Sharks and exploring the
spectacular underwater sculpture museum by the artist
Jason de Caires Taylor. Find out more about the largest underwater museum in the world on
our Fun in the Water page.
Explore the wonders of the Mexican Caribbean.

Surrounding Areas and Tours
Isla Contoy, a
small uninhabited island 15 miles north of Isla Mujeres, is a
bird sanctuary for more then 70 species, including some large
nesting colonies and wild frigates. Declared a National wildlife
reserve in 1961, there is a small museum and a lookout tower for
a spectacular panoramic view. A limited number of visitors
allowed each day so it is best to make reservations in advance.
