All about Isla Mujeres

Planning an Isla Mujeres vacation? We’re here to help!

Sculptural beauty

The perfect place to soak up this island’s dreamy atmosphere is right down in the south of the island at Punta Sur. At 65 feet above sea level, these windswept cliffs are the highest elevation on the Yucatan peninsula, and this easternmost point of Isla Mujeres is also the eastern edge of Mexico, where the sun first greets the country each day. A fitting spot, then, for an ancient Mayan temple honouring the goddess Ixchel, the remains of which can still be seen. Taking its cue from the temple, the Punta Sur Sculpture Garden was created in 2001, and artworks by both Mexican and international artists, created to reflect the great civilization of the past, are scattered across the bluff, making for majestic Insta-worthy views.

Totally turtle

Not far from the centre of town, on the western coast of the island, you’ll find an Isla Mujeres attraction that’ll make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Do you love sea turtles? Of course you do! Who doesn’t? And at the turtle sanctuary, La Tortugranja, they have been protecting these marvellous marine critters for the past 15 years. There are six different species of turtle that nest on the island, and to protect a population threatened by fishermen who found egg-laying mothers easy pray, the eco warriors at the sanctuary surround turtle nests with wire cages and use their conservation facility to rear and release thousands of hatchlings each year. You can take a one-hour guided tour of the facility to learn more about its work, and there’s a small aquarium on site too, with seahorses, lobsters, crabs and plenty of colourful tropical fish to gawp at.

A different sort of dive

If you want to jump right in with the local sea life, as well as a few less likely citizens of the deep, Isla Mujeres offers an experience that’s an inspired mingling of culture and nature. The Museo Subacuatico de Arte (MUSA) is one of the largest underwater art attractions in the world, and a scuba/snorkel experience unlike any you’ve encountered before. MUSA was conceived and founded in 2009, and is today made up of over 500 permanent sculptures including people, cars and underwater angels, spread across more than 4,500 square feet of the seabed. Built to demonstrate the interaction between art and environmental science, these sculptures now form part of a complex reef structure for marine life to colonize and inhabit, and are slowly being claimed by coral, seaweed and fish. At 8-10 feet deep, this is a perfect dive for beginners, and within reach of those with a snorkel and a large lung capacity. Alternatively, you can take a glass-bottomed boat tour to drink in the eerie beauty of the underwater scenes.
