About Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres, translated to “Island of Women,” has a fascinating history. It was a sacred place for the Mayans long before it became a tourist hotspot. 


Getting to Isla Mujeres

If you’re coming from outside Mexico, your first stop will likely be Cancún International Airport (CUN). Next you'll need to take the ferry or a private charter over to the island from Cancun.
