Tiny municipal seat of an eponymous island, each season Isla Mujeres swells to bursting with international tourists coming here to swim, snorkel, dive, fish, and sail.

Escape the urban bustle at Playa Norte and Scuba & Snorkeling. There's still lots to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Tortugranja and stop by Galeria de Arte Mexicano.
