Playa Norte, Isla Mujeres

4.6
The tropical paradise of Playa Norte occupies a scenic spot on an island once considered the sanctuary of Mayan goddess Ix Chel. Shaded by tall palm trees, the soft white sand provides enough space for playing sports or hosting a party, while the turquoise sea remains as calm as a lake. Snorkel or swim in the inviting shallow water, which teems with fish and other colorful marine creatures. Beach bars provide refreshments and rent out lounge chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Several larger eateries along the water will give you access to changing facilities with any purchase of food and drink.

  • Although It is a small island and very nice everywhere, I consider that Playa Norte is the most beautiful part, with calm waters and incredible colors. Nice Place to spend the day, keep in mind that most of the paradores close at 17, so take advantage of early. In all the places they charge the rent of chair and parasols and it is not cheap, I spend a place where that money is discounted in consumption which is convenient, apart has excellent cuisine and varieties of drinks, beer and tequila, do not hesitate to spend your day There. It'S called "MAYAN Beach Club" and can be identified by its blue parasols. I Hope you can enjoy it!

  • We hired the ferry with the company "Ultramar" that we happened to search near our place of lodging to take us to the terminal of Cancun. The trip to the island is less than 20 min. You can rent carts to travel. We chose to go straight to enjoy the beach. We Rented 2 chairs and parasol for 300 Mexican pesos that included that money in consumption. The Beach is spectacular! The water crystal clear and calm. Then we walked down the main street which has several shops and restaurants. I would sure go back and stay the night, it'S worth it!
