“Nous avons passé de superbes vacances cet été dans la maison de Gerry et Nathalie à Islas Mujeres. Les photos correspondent totalement à la réalité: maison meublée avec gout, charmante, agréable à vivre, sur une petite ile paradisiaque. Gerry et Nathalie sont également charmants, et ont tout fait pour nous rendre ce séjour le plus agréable possible, nous prêtant même leur voiture, nous indiquant des adresses, nous envoyant leur femme de ménage. Bref, nous recommandons cet échange avec chaleur! Caroline”

Where is it?
Isla Mujeres is a very safe island. There is a large Navy Base that houses 2200 Navy personnel, most of them live in the community, there are also Federal, State and Municipal Police forces here. There is nothing safer than having a policeman living on your street! Isla Mujeres is a very important place for Mexico and Mexicans, strategically and culturally, they call it the 'Jewel of the Caribbean'.
We are situated at the south end of the island and the ocean is about 100m to the East and West, the neighbourhood is all larger homes owned by ex-pats
We are 500m from the easterly most point of Mexico, Punta Sur.
All amenities and the local village is about 1km north, and the main tourist town is 5km north.
The whole island is 7km long and about 500m wide. There is an active fishing industry, but tourism is the main industry. Most of the visitors are on day trip tours, after 5 pm the island becomes a very different place. The locals come out after dark when it is a bit cooler and typically sit outside their homes and socialize and watch the world go by.
There are world class attractions here, scuba diving, snorkelling, Turtle sanctuary, Garaffon National Park and Dolphin Discovery are a short distance away. Isla Mujeres is also one of the few places on earth where you can swim with whale sharks in the summer.
Whether you want authentic Mexican or something more familiar it is all here. Excellent restaurants of all types. Even a few small night clubs.
This is a laid back working community, it is not your typical Cancun experience. Just to give you an idea, the Island just got it's first traffic light last year. If you want great shopping, movies, golfing and nightlife that is all available with a short 20 minute ferry ride back to the mainland in Cancun.
We can arrange ground connections from the Airport to our door.
