The breathtaking beauty of Isla Mujeres, Spanish for the "Island of the
Women" can be found just over 8 miles from the Yucatan Peninsula coast. The
island itself is about 4.3 miles long and 2,130 feet wide. East of the
island lies the Caribbean Sea, to the west the beautiful skyline of Cancun
can be seen across the breathtaking aqua clear waters.
To many tourists amazement, this area had very little to no tourism prior to the 1970's at which time along with nearby Cancun the area exploded with tourist development.
Tourism continued to advance through the 1980's allowing tourist to taking advantage of the breathtaking views and sights Isla Mujeres has to offer. The climate here is nearly perfect and so is the geography. An area where the crystal white sand meets the turquoise ocean and tourism is booming. Isla Mujeres is an ideal spot for vacation and features a nearly endless list of all inclusive hotels and vacation packages ideal everyone. In fact the success of both Cancun Vacations Resorts and Isla Mujeres Vacation Resorts lead to Ferry boats running daily from the island and Puerto Juarez or Gran Puerto on the mainland. The island is popular with day tourists, but the activity does quiet down some in the evening after the tour groups leave.
