Isla Mujeres – Globtrotter Girls

Isla Mujeres The first mistake I made when I visited Isla Mujeres? I only stayed for a day. That was in 2010, during my first trip to the Yucatan peninsula, when I lived in Playa del Carmen for a month. I fell in love with the little island off the coast of Cancun immediately. The second mistake I made? I waited nearly six years to return to Isla Mujeres, even though I was raving about it to everyone who was planning a trip to the Yucatan and asked me for advice on where to go, and despite the fact that I returned to the Yucatan in 2012. It is still beyond me why I didn’t plan in time for a little island getaway back then, but I guess after two months of living on a remote Caribbean beach I wasn’t craving more beach time. When I planned my Yucatan road trip this year, I made sure that we would spend some time on Isla Mujeres. There isn’t much to do on this tiny island, which is only 1.3 miles (7 kilometers) long and 2,130 feet (650 meters) wide. As I recall, there weren’t even cars on the island then, only golf carts, but this time around there were a few cars as well. However, golf carts are still definitely outnumbering cars on Isla Mujeres, and most tourists rent those for the day instead of scooters.

  1. I went to Isla Mujeres too, in 1985. What a cute little place that also was a SUPER memory. I just adored it. Riding around the place, the beautiful beach , the friendly locals. I purchased two rings from a georgeous man, his wife and brother. After buying the rings we all sat and communed over Caronas. The next morning met up with the man on a tourist bus in the yucatan he was working as a tour guide. We snorkeled together,laughed together. He made a lifetime fun fun memory for me.
