Isla Mujeres (Island of Women) is the perfect place for a short vacation or a new place to call home. You’ll soon agree as you spend your days relaxing on a powder white beach, snorkeling in the crystal blue waters or just lounging in your hammock under your favorite palapa. By night you’ll dine on fabulous meals of every variety. After you’ve eaten your fill, there is still plenty to satisfy all interests. Take a relaxing stroll through the moonlit streets while breathing in the ocean air. If you’re so inclined, take in some of the abundant nightlife and maybe even dance your way ’til dawn.
The Isla Mujeres is located due east off the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It’s about eight miles across the Bay of Women (Bahia Mujeres), still in sight of its neighbor to the west, Cancun. The island was formed by ocean currents depositing sediment, which provided its abundance of sand and flat topology. Isla is five miles long and roughly one half mile wide at the widest point.
The climate of Isla Mujeres is, as you might expect, PERFECT. The temperature is fairly consistent, hovering around 80 degrees most of the year, with the hottest months from June to August.
