Chilling Out: Holidays to Playa Mujeres are all about peace and relaxtion, but offer all the sun, sea and scenery of the Cancun area, but without the crowds and frantic nightlife. With fewer hotels and a smaller population, the main beach is rarely crowded and perfect for couples or families who just want to get away from it all. The sugar-white sands shelve gently into the intensely blue waters, making it safe for youngsters who want to splash about. With palm trees fringing the beach, you’ll find a few vacant hammocks to chill out in, when you need a little shade.
Nature Lovers: A short boat trip will take you to the Isla Mujeres: a stunning island, littered with beaches, lagoons, and fragrant mangrove forests. While the eastern side of the island is jagged and rocky and virtually impossible to swim in, the western side boasts superb snorkelling conditions and a coral reef. It’s possible to see Sea Turtles, shimmering shoals of fish, and even glimpse the massive yet completely harmless whale shark. The Isla Mujeres is also home to the ‘cave of sleeping sharks’, an underwater cave where whale sharks and other species gather, to rest.
Teeing Off: If you’ve got a passion for golf, no holiday to Playa Mujeres would be complete without a trip to the local golf club. With 18 holes and a stunning backdrop, the course offers exciting challenges for even the most seasoned player. However, if you’re new to the game then there are tutorials on offer with club professionals, and with the facility to rent clubs, there’s no need to bring your own.
