Isla Mujeres Attractions Things to Do

Full-Moon Nights on Isla Mujeres Round Out Relaxing Days

Legend has it that our Isla Mujeres was a stopover for 16th century lusty buccaneers, who used the island to keep their women safe while plundering Spanish treasure ships. There is a less romantic version, however. It involves Spaniard Francisco Hernández de Córdoba, who, while sailing from Cuba to capture slaves, found a stone temple containing clay figurines of Mayan goddesses.
