Perhaps best of all, Isla Mujeres lies just off the Playa Mujeres coastline. Several hotels offer day trips to this beautiful Caribbean-style island, where you can snorkel, fish, swim with whale sharks, relax on white sand beaches, and admire the Sea Walls Murals in el centro. Rent a golf cart or bicycle for your island tour, and be sure not to miss the ocean views from Mexico’s easternmost point at Acantilado del Amanecer, or Cliff of the Dawn.
