Island Getaway

Island Getaway

September 01, 2014

When we want to get away from it all, we set sail for nearby Isla Mujeres, the tiny Caribbean island about eight miles north of Cancun. Spanish for "Island of Women" (though, trust us, there are plenty of men here), Isla Mujeres is a picture-perfect spot for a relaxing day trip away from the hustle and bustle of Playa del Carmen. Enjoy fresh seafood in restaurants that run the gamut, from Maya to Mexican to Italian and Thai. Our friends at Mayaland Tours offer well-organized catamaran sailing excursions to this sunny island paradise, where you'll have a chance to snorkel a lovely reef, have lunch and cocktails and shop for souvenirs - all in the company of a bilingual guide who picks you up at the front door of our Playa del Carmen resort. Easy enough?
