Embark on a fabulous adventure as you take a luxury sail on a catamaran from Cancun to the colorful slice of paradise that is Isla Mujeres. Explore the beauty of the Mexican Caribbean during your cruise across breathtaking turquoise waters before you lose yourself in the winding streets of the little island town of Isla Mujeres. Soak up the picturesque beauty and inspiring beaches, and end your journey with a sail back to Cancun over open-bar drinks and a gourmet lunch to round out a delightful day.
Sail in luxury aboard a catamaran to Isla Mujeres
Your amazing journey starts out at the V&V Marina in Costa Mujeres, the resort zone just to the north of Cancun. You can make your own way to the pier, or add on transportation from your Cancun or Riviera Maya resort. When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by the friendly staff and crew in charge of your luxury sailing experience, not to mention you’ll admire incredible views of the azure Caribbean Sea and Isla Mujeres just across the horizon.
But don’t just stand there and look at the island from afar — hop aboard the catamaran so you can have a first-hand encounter with the beauty of Isla Mujeres. Sail the crystalline waters of the Mexican Caribbean and become amazed by how the turquoise waters surround you, while the Costa Mujeres shores become more distant on one side, the coast of Isla Mujeres approaching on the other side, and the picture-perfect views of the Cancun Hotel Zone inspire you on another side. Also, let the sea breeze relax you as your cruise on in peace to your lovely little island haven.
Explore Isla Mujeres and fall in love with its small town charm
When your luxury catamaran arrives to Isla Mujeres, you’ll find yourself at an endearing town full of color and tranquility. You’ll be free to explore this gorgeous Mexican town at your own pace, walking on the small streets and getting glimpses of the Caribbean Sea throughout your stroll. Keep an eye out for the small shops selling traditional handicrafts and natural products, which are perfect souvenirs for your loved ones back home.
Immerse yourself in the peaceful culture and laid back style of island life. You’ll find that even though it’s such a small island, Isla Mujeres has a big history that dates back to pre-Hispanic times, when the Mayan people established it 1,500 years ago as a sanctuary for Ixchel, their goddess of fertility and happiness. The Spanish conquerors arrived there in the 16th century and named it Isla Mujeres, the Island of Women, because they found that the Mayans had built many statues in honor of their goddess Ixchel.
Relax on the sands of the breathtaking Playa Norte and its calm waters
But of course, the main draw of coming to Isla Mujeres is to explore its coastline and beaches, which provide a spectacular backdrop to your adventure. And perhaps there’s no better place for catching the sun and lounging around than at Playa Norte (North Beach), which is located appropriately enough on the northern terminus of this island. Playa Norte has been voted among the Top 10 beaches in the world by TripAdvisor travelers for the past three years. In a matter of seconds, you’ll see why it ranks so high on traveler’s choice lists.
Relax on the heavenly white sands of Playa Norte to get a perfect tan, take a dip in its calm crystalline waters that soothe you with its minimal movements, or simply walk around to admire all the stunning beauty as you breathe in the fresh air. Remember to bring your camera so you can capture those picture-perfect moments framed by a 360-degree view of paradise.
Enjoy a gourmet lunch and open bar drinks on your sail back
After you’ve relaxed and felt the fulfilment of experiencing an unforgettable visit to Isla Mujeres, climb aboard your luxury catamaran for the return sail to Cancun. On the way, you’ll get to savor a gourmet lunch prepared with the best ingredients for your maximum delight. Complement your meal with a nice refreshing drink as you sit back and relax under the afternoon sun. Choose from a selection of beverages from the catamaran’s open bar. You could be chilling out with an ice-cold beer in hand, or take it easy with a nice glass of wine to pair with your lunch. If you need something stronger, take a nice cocktail made with tequila, vodka, gin, whiskey or rum to really get you in the party spirit. Or simply enjoy unlimited soft drinks for easy-going refreshment as the cruise winds down.
On your sail back to the marina, the final portion of your excursion, look at Isla Mujeres’ distant beauty as you sip back another cocktail and the all-surrounding ocean breeze delights you one more time. Take in even more amazing views of the Mexican Caribbean and the approaching Costa Mujeres coastline to end a glorious day before coming back to land, where you’ll take your added transfer or your own transportation for the return ride to your resort.
There could be snorkeling as a bonus
Only if weather conditions allow, your luxury catamaran sail to Isla Mujeres could give you quite the extra — snorkeling to explore some of the most renowned underwater spots on the planet. The boat will make a stop at a sector of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world and one of the must-sees to complete any Cancun / Riviera Maya vacation.
Put on your snorkel gear, take the plunge to swim in the warm Caribbean waters, and observe an astonishing world beneath the surface. Discover colors you might have never seen as you’re surrounded by tropical fish that dart and float around through an array of coral formations, one more vivid than the next. The area is famous for its unique reef environment and wealth of marine life, so you’ll definitely live an unforgettable swim, a perfect bonus complement to your luxury sailing experience.
