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.

  • Better beaches elsewhere on the island. Too many commercial establishments / restaurants do not give a relaxing feel... I found cancun hotel zone beach better. Kids refused to enter water as they did....  more »
