The dream vacation in the Mexican Caribbean includes visiting our idyllic islands: Isla Mujeres, Holbox and Isla Cozumel, destinations that with their tropical charm and Caribbean joy captivate each and every single traveler from the first moment they put a foot on them.

In this blog post you will get to know some of the top things to do when visiting the smallest island of the Mexican Caribbean, which lies just eight miles off the coast of Cancun. Whether you go as a daytripper or for a longer stay, there's plenty you can do in Isla Mujeres!

For this first experience you will need to wake up really early in the morning to head to Punta Sur to admire the sunrise as due to its geographic location, this place is privileged to be the first one in Mexico to receive each morning the first sun rays, an impressive phenomenon that is worth admiring. This place reaches 20 meters above sea level, so it gives the best views of the Caribbean Sea. We assure you that being an early bird will be worth it!

Enjoy a beach day in Playa Norte, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, according to several travel magazines and to travelers who have had the privilege of being here, where you will be able to experience the magic and romantic atmosphere of Isla Mujeres. Relax among numerous palm trees and soak in its calm turquoise waters while you wait for the sun to go down to witness one of the most spectacular sunsets of the Mexican Caribbean.

Zip-lining over the ocean is an experience you will want to do over and over again because in addition to the adrenaline, you will enjoy the magnificent views of the cliffs and the breathtaking shades of blue of the Caribbean Sea.

Get into the depths of the ocean to snorkel or scuba dive. Around the island you will find several coral reefs teeming with colorful fish and abundant marine species that will make your underwater experience something to remember. Manchones reef, El Farito reef, Bandera reef and the Sleeping Sharks Cave are some of the best dive spots.

Speaking of unique and magical experiences, on Isla Mujeres, as well as on Holbox island, you can go swimming with whale sharks during the months of May to September, the largest fish in the world.
