When we visited Cancún, we chose to stay at a hotel on Isla Mujeres. There is a ferry that leaves Puerto Juarez every 30 minutes to go to Isla Mujeres. It takes about 20 minutes to get there. If you plan to do most of the activities on the Cancún side, it is a little inconvenient to travel back and forth everyday. But Isla Mujeres has an astonishing view of the beach and ocean. The town itself is lovely and charming too. I recommend you to stay one or two days and walk around.
This time we stayed at Mia Reef Isla Mujeres. The hotel is located on the northern end of Isla Mujeres. It is built on its own island and connected to the main island through a long wooden bridge. The room was average, however, we had an extraordinary view to the ocean from our balcony. The hotel has beautiful beaches and pools.
The hotel is all inclusive, so we ate all our meals at the hotel restaurant. They had amazing tacos there. There are also many restaurants and bars on Isla Mujeres. Maybe even too many options for you to choose. I definitely would love to return to this beautiful island one day and immerse myself in its wild enthusiasm.
One day when we took the ferry back to the island, the sun was about to set. The sky became a giant canvas. All different romantic colors mixed together, pink, purple, fuchsia. Nature is the greatest painter ever. The breeze was gentle and a bit chilly.
During the day, Isla Mujeres was colorful and passionate. When the night came, Isla Mujeres was even more charming. After sunset, the bars and restaurants became lively. People sat outside when they enjoyed the food. Musicians played traditional Mexican music near the tables. The souvenir shops were still open. Different merchandise added more color to this lovely island.
