Isla Mujeres, Mexico is a small, amazing, quiet tiny island placed off the coast of Cancun. Its clear blue water, incredible coral reefs, sugar sand beaches, calmly moving palm trees, migrating whale sharks, Mayan ruins, and giant iguanas that walk over your view sometimes when you’re not looking make it one of the top travel locations in the Riviera Maya.
Playa Norte (North Beach) is by far the most popular and is often rated one of the best in the Caribbean. Playa Norte is just minutes from downtown, and the palm trees and luxurious white sand make Playa Norte muy hermosa. Playa Norte has almost no current, and kids and adults can wade pretty far out and the water will only reach their waist. Playa Posada, found along the west side isn’t as crowded, however the water isn’t as clear, and Playa Media Luna is a beautiful crescent shaped beach but the water can be rough.
