>> Isla Mujeres

 

Isla Mujeres is a small island about 7 kilometers long and 650 meters wide. In Pre-Hispanic times the island was sacred to the Mayan moon goddess, Ix Chel. When the Spanish arrived here in the 16th century they named it “Isla Mujeres” meaning “Island of Women” because of the many cult images of the moon goddess were found here. Since the 1970 there has been substantial development for tourism here. Ferry boats run every half hour during daylight. There are numerous places to eat fresh seafood, as well as Maya cuisine. Isla Mujeres is located close to one of many coral reefs, and the area is popular for its snorkeling and scuba diving. Isla Mujeres is also home to a population of sea turtles. The hit of the island is underwater cave sleeping shark, the coral formation on the 25-meters depth with multiple internal caves where the sharks have a somnambulistic sleep. The main place in Isla Mujeres is park Garrafon. This is an excellent place for snorkeling.
