The Magical Town of Isla Mujeres, 13 km off the coast of Cancun, can be explored on a day trip.
It offers spectacular turquoise blue waters and white sandy beaches.
Isla Mujeres is ideal for diving and snorkeling, but its main attraction is swimming with whale sharks at certain times of the year.
Renting a golf cart or bicycle to tour the island is advisable. Many inexpensive hotels will allow a comfortable stay and enjoy water parks and marine museums.
The promenade near the ferry terminal is the best place to dine. The most popular food here is seafood, of course.
