Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is Spanish for island of women. They named it this because of the many images of goddesses they discovered on the island in the 16th century.

The island is 7 km long and 650M wide, nestled in the Caribbean sea just off the coast by Cancun. The north end and central town site sees the most tourism. The south end is mostly private homes. It’s a very laid back destination especially after sunset when the day tourists head back to Cancun
