Playa Mujeres is located 25 minutes north of Cancun and is relatively new regarding tourism. Hotels only started going up in this area during the past 20 years, with most hotels only a few years old. Even with the recent boom in development, the area still boasts one of the most natural and serene environments, mainly in part to the wetlands wildlife preserve that creates the town’s western border.
Convenience to the Cancun Airport is a key selling point for this higher-end, all-inclusive resort destination and makes it an excellent location for an easy-breezy weekend getaway. Since all of these hotels have perfected and simplified the check-in process, you really can be on the beach with a drink in hand by the afternoon. Adults only resorts sit side by side, family-friendly hotels, often sharing privileges, making Playa Mujeres a smart choice for multi-generational family travel.
With all resorts in the area being all-inclusive, the fly and flop mentality sets the tone here. But you don’t have to spend your entire time lazing about on the beach or by the pool. There is a noteworthy Greg Norman golf course as well as miles of relaxing natural beaches to stroll. Or if you feel adventurous, take the ferry across to Isla Mujeres – a little blip of an island eight miles offshore. Our travel advisors can easily add this as a day trip on your Mexico vacation itinerary.
