Best Lodging for Sailing on Isla Mujeres

The Caribbean waters of Isla Mujeres are utterly enchanting, and one of the best ways to give in to their spell is by getting out on them in a sailboat. Slicing along over aquamarine depths and coral gardens, powered by the sweet-smelling sea breeze under a tropic sun—there’s really nothing like it, and a stay with us at Privilege Aluxes gives you the chance to experience this singular magic with a luxury island perch.

You can learn more about sailing opportunities during your stay at Privilege Aluxes by getting in touch with our Concierge Services. To whet your appetite in the meantime, here are a couple of regional charters that offer sailing tours around Isla Mujeres.

Cancun Adventures

Climb aboard the Cancun Adventures luxury sailing catamaran and make a wind-powered crossing from Cancun to Isla Mujeres for a full day’s tour. This sailing adventure includes snorkeling on the itinerary—no surprise, given Isla Mujeres offers some of the best snorkeling anywhere—as well as paddleboarding. Besides being provided all the snorkeling gear you need, you’ll also have access to an open bar and enjoy an on-the-water gourmet lunch as well.

Cancun Adventure Tours

This tour, which also embarks from Cancun, takes place in a 70-foot sailing catamaran called the Albatross. The midmorning-to-late-afternoon itinerary includes snorkeling at El Farito (The Lighthouse), one of the best-known underwater destinations along the Isla Mujeres coast, as well as opportunities for some shopping on the island.

Sailing to Isla Mujeres

Perhaps you’ve got your own sailing vessel and are planning a visit to Isla Mujeres. In that case, you can learn about local marinas and the basics of gaining clearance through official ports of entry in this Caribya! writeup. We welcome you to call our luxury beachfront resort home while you’re exploring all Isla Mujeres has to offer, from that world-class snorkeling (and scuba diving) to primo beachgoing, dining, and shopping amid our uniquely laidback Mexican Caribbean atmosphere.

The Regatta del Sol a Sol

We recently spotlighted the famous sailing race, the Regatta del Sol a Sol, that runs between Florida’s Tampa Bay and Isla Mujeres here at the Privilege Aluxes blog. The next edition of this venerable event, which has been going down since the 1960s, is set to take place in April of next year (2020)—something to consider if you’re an experienced sailor!
