Isla Mujeres is a place to kick back, relax and be carried off to paradise. And although the island is known more for its tranquil beaches, beyond its coastline lies a world of adventure waiting to be discovered.
Some of the best things to in Cancun and its surroundings remains experiencing the coast’s lush Caribbean waters. Here, you can swim among a huge variety of fish, gaze at resting starfish on the seafloor, and wave as sea turtles swimming by.
There’s an amazing underwater world to discover in Isla Mujeres. The Underwater Museum – a nonprofit organization devoted to the art of conservation – has some of its exhibit along the island’s shore. The museum has a total of 500 sculptures, most by the British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor and the others by five Mexican sculptors. Here, three different galleries lie submerged between ten to twenty feet deep in the ocean at the National Marine Park.
The island is also a hotspot for whale sharks during the months of May through September, and kiteboarders love the shallow waters and wide beaches.
However, catamaran tours offer fun family activities for everyone. Cruise away from the town’s bustling sun-soaked coast for a taste of the island life. Enjoy a relaxing ride on a luxurious catamaran with plenty of room to stretch out, experience some of the best snorkeling in Cancun in the brilliant blue water, and drift off in tandem to the ocean’s soothing current.
