Considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world due to its uncomparable colors and environment. It is a must in your list of activities in Isla Mujeres. The depth of the water does not exceed the waist, making it practically a natural pool visited by people from the island, from Cancun, and even Playa del Carmen with their yachts and catamarans anchored in the distance. Immerse yourself in its crystal clear water to cool off a bit before posing in front of amazing yachts in the background that float in the beautiful turquoise Caribbean sea.
2.- The sculpture garden of Punta Sur
Punta Sur has one of the most privileged views on the whole island. Resting on a cliff with a landscape worthy of a postcard picture, surrounded by a series of sculptures that intermingle the natural beauty of the area with human talent. Take the opportunity to snap a photo with the extensive sea in the background or walk between the passages of Punta Sur until you find among the rock formations the temple of the Mayan goddess Ixchel.
3.- The Turtle Farm
Visiting the Turtle Farm in Isla Mujeres is in itself a very entertaining activity that also gives you knowledge about different types of turtles and other small marine species that you can easily find in the area. The place has the aim to get the information to more people in terms of awareness and preservation of the species. If you enjoy hanging out with animals, this is the perfect place to spend a morning with them, being possible to keep that special moment with a photo, just make sure you have the flash off to avoid disturbing the turtles.
4.- The murals
Isla Mujeres was in 2014 part of an international art project known as Sea Walls: Artists for Oceans. It is in this way that multiple buildings in different parts of Isla Mujeres went from being empty walls to canvases for different artists from around the world who through their creativity made spectacular works of art with the ocean and its creatures as the central theme. Nowadays, these murals remain on the island, being very common among tourists to pose in front of them and keep that photo as a reminder of their vacations.
5.- Hacienda Mundaca
The best thing you can do while on vacation in Isla Mujeres is to also take advantage of its historical and cultural side, one of the best options to do it is visiting Hacienda Mundaca. Legend has it that the place was built by the pirate Fermín Antonio Mundaca in honor of La Trigueña, the woman he loved. Although the story talks about heartbreak, the place remains as one of the most beautiful places to walk among wells, gardens, stone arches, and some ruins that, to this day, still have a unique beauty, offering visitors the ideal stage for some good photographs.
