North Point and South Point

Isla Mujeres

From north to south, the 2 ends of Isla Mujeres, serve as highlights for your trip. The size of the island allows you to come and go from North Poing to South Poing, in just one day. So, do it at your own pace to enjoy what each one has to offer.

North Point: Bring a swimsuit and everything you need to swim in one of the widest beaches in Mexico. From its location, it is easy to guess that Playa Norte is at the magical end of Isla Mujeres. The reason it is so busy is its width: 100 meters away separate you from the sea and a dune covered with vegetation. A curious fact is that this was the first point that the Spanish conquerors touched, back in 1517.

South Poing: we have already pointed this out, but this is the first place in Mexico where the sun's rays touch every morning. Also, there is an outside sculpture park with 23 pieces done by artists from around the globe. The site can be explored on foot or by bicycle. You can admire the work of José Luis Cuevas, Manuel Felguerez, Bruce Beasley and Vicente Rojo, who donated some sculptures to the park.

The walk comes to an end in front of the Temple of Ixchel, Mayan goddess of love, the moon and fertility. From the monument you can admire the cliffs and reef.
