Taking a vacation in Cancun or the Isla Mujeres is becoming highly affordable, especially for those in the USA and Canada, as flight prices are dropping rapidly. Cancun and the Isla Mujeres are the perfect pair of vacation spots as they are only a boat trip apart and represent the Yin to the others’ Yang.
Isla Mujeres and Cancun Vacations
For those who love the bustle and busyness of a tourist hotspot, Cancun is the perfect place to stay; the night life here is world class, and there are plenty of gourmet restaurants. If you prefer peace and quiet, however, you’d be best to book your hotel room on the Isla Mujeres. Either way, however, you won’t miss out because you can get between the mainland and the island very quickly by water taxi! Isla Mujeres and Cancun vacations are simply the best!
Activities to Enjoy on your Isla Mujeres and Cancun vacations
History lovers will be enthralled by the Sian Ka’an biosphere which is home to 23 archaeological sites as well as stunning flora and fauna unique to the area. Those interested in Mayan history more specifically can visit the ruins of Chichen Itza or Tulum, but both of these attractions have something for everyone. Even if you’re not a history buff these ruins are worth visiting!
The more traditional vacation pastimes of swimming, snorkelling and diving are very popular on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, and Cancun is no different. There are plenty of reefs, shipwrecks and cenotes to explore in the Yucatan Peninsula. Even if you have no experience you can enjoy these sights as there are many tour guides in Isla Mujeres and Cancun who will be willing to show you the ropes, so to speak.
If you love the water, but would like to stay closer to the land than the seabed then the Jolly Roger Pirate show is definitely for you. Leaving from Cancun’s Playa Linda pier in the morning for the day cruise to Isla Mujeres, and in the evening for the night cruise along the coastline the Jolly Roger Pirate ship is the best pirate show in Mexico! What’s more your meals are included in the price of your tickets so you don’t have to worry about that!
Isla Mujeres and Cancun vacations are perfect for any season.
