Isla Mujeres is a laid back island just a short 15-minute ferry ride from Cancun. In town, there are two fabulous beaches, a pedestrian walkway lined with restaurants and bars, and lots of little shops here and there. If you want to explore a bit, you can rent a golf cart for the day ($50-60) and head to beach clubs, a turtle sanctuary, and even a small Maya ruin at the easternmost tip of the island.Recommended for:

Take the snorkeling tour offere right on the dock as you get it. It will be a nice day trip especially if you stay in Cancun and want to take a good tour of the island's beaches. The tour will take you around the island to the best beaches and will allow you to snorkel in the best places. the tour also includes a meal of fresly cook fish. It is a good deal.Recommended for:

I finally made it over to Isla Mujeres for a dive trip. The weather was amazing, the food was so fresh and the diving was not difficult but still interesting. The main town was a little much for me, but I truly loved the resorts a little further out. Also the exchange rate made meals here a steal!Recommended for:

Gorgeous island off the coast of Cancun. Not really a party island, this place is all about rest and relaxation. The sand is so white and soft and the water so warm and calm. I took way too many naps on the beaches here. Very safe, a lot of people walk around at night and stay out late. It's more of a vacation get away for adults, although there are some things for kids to do, like kayaking and windsurfing. You don't have to stay on the island to visit, round trip ferry tickets are cheap enough to just spend the day. If you are near Cancun you can't miss this beautiful island!Recommended for:

It's no castaway desert island, but Isla Mujeres has a nice funky feel to it, especially when you explore down in the "colonias," the more local sections in the middle of the island. There's a lot of great food here, and really no chain restaurants or anything. And you can't beat the location--you can get there in less than an hour from the Cancun airport.Recommended for:

I have been there several times as I love it so much. Staying on this island is soul lifting for me. This is not an old primitive island with authentic feels, but it has still some Mexican touches. Just a perfect place to relax, imagining doing yoga on the beach every morning and going to a beach that almost like a swimming pool, calm, clear water, shallow water. The Islanders remember me each time when I go back. The northern beach during low seasons is the best beach I have ever seen.

For someone with as bad of a sense of direction as I have, Isla Mujeres is perfect. It's tiny -- not even a mile wide and just four miles long -- so you can never get lost. Yet, it has everything you could ever want from a relaxed beach vacation in Mexico. A ferry ride from Cancun, the island has no cars, only golf carts, scooters and taxis. It'd take weeks to go through all of the fresh seafood restaurants. The surrounding waters are blindingly blue and the snorkeling and diving are excellent.

Going through a tough time in my life, I wanted to visit a place that would soothe my soul. Isla Mujeres did not disappoint! It has just the right mix of outdoor activities and face-down relaxation, and I'm sure I'll be back. Not to be missed is the underwater museum! Even if you're not a certified diver, find an outfit that will do a buddy dive so you can experience this properly. My new Facebook cover photo sports a pic of me posing with one of the statues, and my friends are amazed...

I recommend taking a ferry to the colorful and quaint Isla Mujeres, the Island of Women. I suggest walking around and relaxing at a beach front cafe over a shrimp taco and glass bottled coke. http://www.isla-mujeres.net/generalinfo.htm

Isla Mujeres is a great island to slightly escape the chaos of Cancun while still being able to get your party on. I believe that in the right season that you can dive with the Whale Sharks. There is one insane hostel on the island named Pocna which is has decent accommodations but really exists to throw crazy beach parties out back. Hope that gets you to where you need to go. Best of luck
