Isla Mujeres Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres means Island of Women and is a small and beautiful island located just a short 20 minute ferry ride away from Cancun.

Isla Mujeres combines the beauty of the Caribbean, a lush tropical jungle and the wonderful heritage of the Mayan civilization. It is only 500 meters wide and 7.5km long and is a Caribbean paradise frequented by the more laid back traveller and diving enthusiasts. You also get many vacationers coming over from Cancun to spend a day or two on the island.

Isla Mujeres’ romantic setting with its turquoise blue waters and white sand and spectacular sunsets makes it a favourite amongst honeymooners and couples looking for a memorable wedding in the Mexican Caribbean.

The History of Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres has a rich history filled with stories of pirates and Spanish buccaneers. The Spanish conqueror Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba was supposed to have named the island when he landed there in 1517 expecting to find slaves for the Cuban mines but found nothing but a large number of statues of women in the many Mayan temples on the island. This was because the island was sacred to the Mayan goddess of childbirth and medicine, IxChel. Because of this he named the island Isla Mujeres.
