ISLA MUJERES

Site of the first Spanish landing in Mexico in 1517, the “Island of Women” takes its name from the idols of the goddess Ixchel found here. Though close to Cancún, the island has a quite different, laid-back atmosphere, and has long been a backpackers’ favorite. It also has excellent diving and fishing opportunities.
