Isla Mujeres Malecon

The most iconic Caribbean Malecon on Isla Mujeres reopens to the public

Isla Mujeres, a stunning island that sits just off the coast of Cancun, has plenty to offer in the way of tourist attractions. In 2015 it was named a “Magic Town,” which is a town in Mexico that is historically, culturally, or naturally significant.

There are only four Magic Towns, or Pueblo Mágicos, in the Mexican Caribbean. And now one of the Magic Town of Isla Mujeres’ most iconic attractions, the Caribbean Malecon, has reopened to the public.

The remodeling and reopening of the Caribbean Malecon

The Caribbean Malecon, which is a boardwalk that runs along the Caribbean Sea, was in quite a state of disrepair for some time.

This iconic Isla Mujeres attraction used to be a place where tourists and local families would mingle with each other while enjoying the fresh air and warm Caribbean breezes, and now it will be once again.

The boardwalk is better than ever now, too, with the addition of beautiful sculptures of creatures native to the island to enjoy, new seating, and freshly paved walkways. It’s also safer, thanks to the addition of new lighting.

Take time to explore the Caribbean Malecon. Not only will it allow you to see amazing views of the Caribbean Sea, but you will also experience a little piece of Isla Mujeres’ culture and history.

A boardwalk with epic views

The Malecon is the perfect place to catch epic views of the stunning turquoise water surrounding the island. It’s also a fantastic place to view the unbelievable sunsets while visiting Isla Mujeres.

Whether walking or biking along the boardwalk, stopping for the views, day or night, is an absolute must.

What does make Isla Mujeres such an amazing vacation destination?

Isla Mujeres is special for so many reasons, that’s why it’s growing so much in popularity among travelers. The atmosphere is much more laidback than many other Mexican Caribbean vacation destinations because it hasn’t lost its fishing village ambiance.

Isla Mujeres also has some of the best beaches in the region and captivating nature on land and in the sea to explore.

Other Isla Mujeres attractions

Of course, anyone who visits Isla Mujeres has to spend some time on the island’s beaches, particularly Playa Norte, which has been named one of the best beaches in the world.

The Mayan Ruins at Punta Sur Park and the Underwater Sculpture Museum (MUSA) are both fascinating attractions to see too.

Also, a visit to Isla Mujeres is not complete without taking some time to explore the underwater world through snorkeling, and there are many tour options available to do so.

Where to stay in Isla Mujeres?

There are plenty of great places to stay on the tiny little island of Isla Mujeres.

Most of them are smaller boutique hotels that are by no means lacking in amenities or great hospitality. Rates are similar to those in Cancun and other Mexican Caribbean vacation destinations, ranging from around $60 to hundreds of dollars a night.

How to get to Isla Mujeres?

To get to Isla Mujeres, you’ll need to fly into Cancun International Airport. From the Airport, you’ll then need to secure transportation to the Ultramar Ferry port, which is about a half hour from the airport.

The ferry ride to the island takes about 15 minutes and costs around $10-$12 each way.
