Peer under the sea in the scenic Yucatan. One bite into a fish taco while seated at a palm-shaded table by the calm Caribbean Sea, and you’ll be sold. This friendly island is so small you can zip around by “moto,” stopping on a whim for unforgettable experiences. No. 1 is snorkeling, even for non-swimmers. Simply step into the warm water with a mask and place your head below the surface to watch a universe of colorful creatures.

Before You Go
Things To See and Do
Touch a dolphin, shake its fin, go diving with them and even receive a kiss. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced diver you’ll have the opportunity to interact with these amazing mammals as well as with other marine species such as sharks, stingrays, spider monkeys, toucans, and macaws.
Take an excursion to the Contoy National Park, a natural, protected area and animal reserve, uninhabited by humans – 45 minutes north of Isla Mujeres. Rare species of turtles and hundreds of colonies of birds such as pelicans, cranes, and frigates use the island as their mating and breeding grounds away from all human contact. Book in advance as visits are limited to a certain number of people a day.
Garrafon Marine Park
At this natural aquarium, where the waters are calm and clear and the reefs are abundant with life, is where you’ll experience the feeling of being inside a “garrafon” or decanter. The reef in this area is part of the second longest barrier reef in the world and is home to an enormous variety of species, including some that are considered endangered. The soft ocean current is almost imperceptible and wonderful for snorkeling in the water or kayaking above schools of colorful tropical fish.
