Travel guide to Isla Mujeres
Mexico - Isla Mujeres
Mexico - Isla Mujeres
To go on the Isla Mujeres, you need to board the Ferry of Puerto Juarez in Cancun. The crossing last 30 minutes for the cost of 70 Pesos one way at the official selling booth. On the contrary of what my guide book said you have to buy the ticket before boarding the ferry.
The island is about 8KM long and means the Island of Women. The island economy has been based on the fishing trade but now is reliaing on the tourism to survive. The island was used by the Mayan people as a sanctuary dedicated to Ixchel, the godess of love and fertilitty. According to the legend when the Spannish arrived they found a large number of women statues and that’s from here it gets its name. I will recommend a visit to the turtle farm (entrance is 30 Pesos). To get around you can hire a bike or rent a golf cart or scooter if you have a driving liscence.
Other activities includes snorkelling tours, swim with the dolphins, a very small Mayan temple which was mostly destroyed ny Hurrican Gilbert in 1988. [edit text]  [editors]
