The options for water sports on Isla Mujeres are unlimited and unparalleled: windsurfing over calm Caribbean waters; snorkeling through beautiful coral landscapes at El Garrafón National Park or at many of the other reefs surrounding the island and diving into the amazing underwater world of Manchones and Islaché reefs or at the cave of the sleeping sharks. Kayaks, water bicycles and boogie boards are available for rent at Playa Norte (North Beach).

Under the crystalline waters and surrounded by multicolored tropical fish, lies a bronze statue known as La Cruz de la Bahia (The Cross of the Bay). It was places there on August 17, 1994 as part of the festivities held to commemorate the 144th anniversary of the founding of the island. Dives and the devout come to the site to pay homage throughout the year.

The island is ringed by powdery-white sand beaches; the largest is called Playa Norte. Here you can enjoy the sun, tropical breeze and calm, warm waters. The islands influence stretches over to Punta Sam, home of the archaeological site of El Meco and Boca Iglesias, the first convent in Mexico. This area is now developing as Costa Mujeres, and will offer new options with fine, modern accommodations and facilities.

The traditional boat rides are a great option to reach the main points of interest in the island and its surrounding areas. Boats leave from the small docks located on Rueda Medina Avenue, the citys main road. They are available throughout the entire day.

In order to see and enjoy every corner of the island and to mingle with its friendly inhabitants nothing beats a tour around Isla on a golf cart, moped or bicycle.

Many establishments in Isla Mujeres offer tours to the neighboring Isla Contoy, which hosts more than sixty different bird species, as well as a great flora and fauna diversity.
