Isla Mujeres Image gallery
If you are going to visit just one of Quintana Roo’s islands, then Isla Mujeres (Island of Women) is probably the place for you. It’s not as crowded as Cozumel, yet offers more to do and see than chiller-than-thou Holbox. Sure, there are quite a few ticky-tacky tourist shops, but folks still get around by golfcart and the crushed-coral beaches are better than those of Cozumel or Holbox. There’s not much here and that’s the whole point: come to bask in quiet shallows or stretch out on the sand, to snorkel or scuba dive, or just to put the sunglasses on and open that book you’ve been dying to finish.
