Never A Dull Moment

Relax on the powdery sands of North Beach or walk along the rocky shore on the Caribbean side. Isla Mujeres weather is perfect - hovering around 80 degrees most of the year.

Isla's Main Street is called Hidalgo - filled with colorful boutiques and restaurants open into the evening. You'll love the live music - some of it spontaneous!

Isla Mujeres History

On the south end of the island, Punta Sur, picturesque cliffs are home to the ruins of the Mayan temple that gave the island its name, in a way.

For the Maya, the island was a sanctuary to Ixchel, the goddess of fertility. Legend says that Spanish explorers discovered numerous female statues honoring Ixchel, and named it "Isla Mujeres" (Island of Women).
