Besides snorkeling, what else is there to do?

The biggest feature of Isla Mujeres is “relaxation”!

After landing on the island from Cancun, rent a Golf Cart and take half an hour to travel around the island for a week. Near the port is the bustling city center and tourist area, with large and small shops and style graffiti. As you drive towards the sea, it’s a different scene, where you can experience the life of the locals in the residential area of the islanders. Sitting in the golf cart, there are warm Mexicans saying hello all the way.

And, there are plenty of hidden bars and private sandy beaches waiting for you on the island. Comfortable word, but that’s it.

In addition, there are turtle watching, sea fishing, zipline (zipline), etc., and even swimming with whale sharks from June to mid-September.
