Playa Norte

One of the best beaches in the world is on Isla Mujeres!

What Can You Do in Playa Norte?

This spot on the Mexican Caribbean offers a sweeping view of the sunset. Here you can rent lounge chairs and relax in the shade of palm trees, all while drinking in the breathtaking view of the ocean and its turquoise-colored water.

Don’t leave without taking a swim in its quiet, clear water. There are almost no waves here, and the water is shallow for many yards, making it almost a natural pool.

Other Activities on Isla Mujeres

There is much more to do on Isla Mujeres than kick back and sunbathe on its stunning beaches. The best options include aquatic activities, such as snorkeling, kayaking, or swimming among multicolored fish.

You can do all of this in Parque Garrafón, a nature park with a shallow reef with a gentle current.

Swimming with dolphins is also a popular choice on Isla Mujeres. A good place to try it is in Dolphin Discovery, a specialized water park that gives visitors the chance to swim close to these adorable and intelligent cetaceans.
