Isla Mujeres Mexico

 The Mayan Moon Goddess Ixchel



The Mayan people consider Isla Mujeres the home of Ix Chel, the Mayan goddess of fertility, the moon, love and medicine.

The island is accessible via a 15-minute ferry crossing from the Puerto Juarez or Gran Puerto ferry ports.


The dock at Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is approximately 5 miles long and 1/2 mile wide. Isla Mujeres is the place of choice for many visitors seeking sand, sun and entertainment of the Caribbean coast without the crowds and hustle and bustle of Cancun and other Yucatan Peninsula areas.




Your entry to Isla, is a long wooden dock decorated with a string of brightly painted boats, swaying gently along the shoreline.

 The Catch of the day

 

Isla Mujeres remains a fishing village where you can observe fisherman departing early in the morning to return with an abundance of seafood served by the many restaurants throughout the island.


Playa Norte sand castle

 

Isla Mujeres features some of the finest beaches in the world, lodging to suit any budget, a multitude of dining choices, nightlife and beauty rarely found at other Caribbean destinations.

 

 

You can lounge on the fine white sand beaches by day and enjoy dining, dancing, shopping or just strolling the narrow town streets by night. Friendly people and visitors from all over the world inhabit this relaxing oasis.

 

 

 

You can sit along the 4 block long night life corridor, for dinner or to simply relax, be serenaded by the local musicians and chat with the many who have been coming to this enchanted island of women year after year.

Ferry Services

There are 3 main ferry services for getting to Isla Mujeres, operating from
Gran Puerto, Puerto Jaurez  for people, including luggage, approximately a 15 to 20 minute ride and Punta Sam for vehicles, approximately 45 minutes.

Regardless of which Ferry you take, there will be local luggage transporters on bicycles or if you prefer the centro taxi stand is located between the two docks. 

The men on bikes are trustworthy and will carry quite a load, including small children if safety permits.  They are identifiable by a common T-shirt , and their obvious bikes with large metal baskets in the front. They normally work for tips and it is fun to follow them thru the streets on the way to your hotel. Upon arriving you can make arrangements with the same bicycler to meet you at your hotel to transport your luggage back to the ferry when it is time for your departure. Our favorite is Fidel, who you will also see selling newspapers from his bike and/or carrying supplies to various hotels and restaurants throughout the day.... although any one of them will do a great job for you...including carrying your luggage right to your room...for an appropriate tip of course.

If your hotel is further than the downtown area, a taxi is preferably. Please review the costs of your destination, as it is posted on the stone wall at the taxi stand, quite visible for all to see. These taxi's will be lined up and it is appropriate to take the first in line.

The ferry services from the hotel zone in Cancun, are usually an all inclusive trip for those whom are staying in Cancun and wish to experience Isla Mujeres for a day. They are far more costly. If it is transportation you are seeking, it is best to stick with one of the three above.

 Ground Transportation on Isla Mujeres

You do not need a care on Isla Mujeres, as there are multiple ways to get around and explore Isla Mujeres during your visit. You can rent a golf cart or motor bike or bicycle by half or full day or week or you can take taxi's back and forth to your destinations. The latter may be the more expensive depending on how active you are.

There are numerous places throughout the downtown area that rent carts that seat 4-6, and motorbikes. The prices seem to be consistent no matter where you go...so don't waste your time visiting more than one or two locations looking  for a better price. Just make sure it is fully functioning before you depart. You will need a license and a credit card in order to rent any of them. They will keep either in their files until your return. Prices were approximately $35- $55 US for half and full day for carts, and a bit more for motorbikes at our last check. Ask at your hotel about making reservations for you.

TulumIf you choose to travel off the Island to explore some of the ancient Mayan ruins and other exciting areas along the Caribbean coast, there are taxi services, van services and car rental services. Ask at your hotel about any of them. There are many car rentals located in Cancun some will pick you up at the Ferry dock for your convenience, rather than have to take a taxi or the bus to the rental office. It is great fun and normally safe to travel by car and it also allows you to take those detours to even more adventures you will discover along the way, including shopping at all the roadside vendors.

By Bus...go to the main bus terminal in Cancun and there you can find quite a comfortable ride just about anywhere in Mexico. Mundaca Travel and Real Estate usually has a bus schedule and information regarding private transportation to any tourist attraction on the main land.
