Your guide to Playa Mujeres holidays
Playa Mujeres is a tranquil resort located just north of the vibrant city of Cancun on the Riviera Maya. A sprinkling of luxurious hotels, many of which are all-inclusive, stretch along the waterfront, with endless Caribbean beaches of white sand on one side and a marvellous wetland nature reserve on the other. Peace and tranquillity reign supreme in upmarket Playa Mujeres, but there is plenty to see and do. You can try a whole range of water sports, including some world-class snorkelling and scuba diving, or take boat trips to the islands of Isla Contoy, a bird sanctuary, or Isla Mujeres, which has charming fishing villages and heavenly beaches. If you’re looking for bright lights and great shops, then Cancun is right on the doorstep.
Most of the accommodation in Playa Mujeres is in luxurious, all-inclusive hotels, most of which boast gorgeous beach clubs right on the white sand beaches. Bask in the sunshine or take a dip in the azure seas, or perhaps have a go at one of the many water sports available in the area. Favourites include sailing and paddle-boarding, but most visitors come for the world-class snorkelling and scuba diving. Hotels can arrange diving excursions to the best dive sites along the nearby Great Mayan Reef (officially known as the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef), the second-biggest in the world. There are more blissful beaches on Isla Mujeres, a short ferry ride away, or you could head to the busy beaches of Cancun, which boast an incredible array of facilities.
