Isla Mujeres is a 5 x 1/2 mile island off the coast of Cancun. Going there will take you back to a more authentic Mexican cultural feel. The locals will try to sell you small items, but a polite "no thank you" and they will be on their way. You won't find the Ritz Carlton here, but you will find most anything else (beachfront condos, private homes, apartments, studios, all-inclusives, etc.....). Since the island is so small, you're never far from the water. Isla Mujeres is for those who are looking for value and the oppurtunity to take a break from the hub bub of Cancun and their over-inflated prices.
