Want to get to know the real Mexico during your vacation in Cancun? Do you travel with children and want to do something that the whole family can enjoy? How about a relaxed and fun family trip to Isla Mujeres? A small island near Cancun with some of the best beaches in the world and a small town with streets full of shops, restaurants, and cafes is the ideal option!
Amstar offers a wide selection of organized and guided excursions to Isla Mujeres. If you do not plan on taking a safe and organized excursion you can easily get the regular ferry to Isla Mujeres. The ferry departs from the beach Playa Tortugas hotel zone or from Puerto Juarez, which brings you to the island in approximately 20 minutes. Once there, you will find yourself in the middle of the village and only a 5-minute walk away from the most beautiful beach imaginable, Playa Norte – North Beach. It has fine white sand, palm trees, and crystal clear, shallow waters that simply invite you to dive in. There are several restaurants and hotels that rent lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, and have sanitary services, such as the rustic beach club Café del Mar. On the other hand, you and your family can simply lie down in the sand under a palm tree or baking in the sun.
If hunger strikes or you want to see something more than the beach, the small town streets are filled with all kinds of handcrafts, souvenirs, beachwear, and jewelry stores, as well as a wide variety of restaurants that range from rustic family-owned diners to well-known restaurant brands. You can choose between seafood, pizzas, vegetarian food, and much more. There are also places where you can indulge in a delicious ice cream or a coffee.
The main town of Isla Mujeres is perfect for walking around, but you can also rent a golf cart, a motorcycle, or a bicycle and easily explore the island’s 5 miles from one end to the other. The natural environment, the crystal clear waters, and the quaint tranquil streets are simply perfect for families with small children. The only danger there is that you might not want to leave!
