Isla Mujeres: one of the secret spots of Mexico

Share This
A passing tropical shower had driven tourists under the canopies, but having ordered our first margaritas and guacamole since landing an hour earlier at Cancun International Airport, we were content to wait out the weather before catching the ferry at Puerto Juarez.

The ferry runs every 30 minutes out to Isla Mujeres, a narrow island just off the coast of the popular tourist destination. The ride might only take about 20 minutes, but it transports you to a world apart from the large all-inclusive resorts and crowded beaches of Playa del Carmen. Instead, smaller resorts and a fleet of rentable golf carts lend a more relaxed attitude. A few luxury resorts are tucked away on the island, farther from the pedestrian markets and colorful rental villas.

We disembarked amid a tumble of tourists wrangling suitcases and locals transporting flowers and supplies to their businesses. A friend and I had arrived for five days of the white sand beaches of Playa Norte and eating as much fresh-caught fish as humanly possible.
