Isla Mujeres is a great base for day trips. Explore the Mayan sites of Chitzen Itza, Tulum and Ek Balam. Visit the restored Spanish colonial city of Valladolid. See thousands of flamingos in Rio Lagartos.
Adventure awaits closer to home as well. Summer brings the whale sharks to the waters of Isla Mujeres for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim with these docile, 40-foot sea creatures, and at night watch the sea turtles emerge from the waves to lay their eggs in the island’s moonlit sandy beaches.
Year-round, visitors can swim with dolphins at Dolphin Discovery, learn about sea turtles at the island’s turtle farm, snorkel and dive among the fish and coral of one of the world’s largest reefs, or embark on visit to Isla Contoy, a National Park preserving the most important nesting place for sea birds in the Mexican Caribbean.
