Isla Mujeres

After booking my trip to Isla Mujeres through Bluewater, I honestly kept thinking there HAD to be a catch. Over a week at a five-star all inclusive resort, a week straight of two dives per day (three if you choose to night dive... DO IT), and the ability to explore this amazing little island, all for an unbelievably affordable price. Let me just say- Isla Mujeres exceeded every expectation imaginable. The diving conditions were awesome: only needed a 3mil, 100ft vis most days, gnarly shipwrecks such as C-55, drift dives around the island, beautiful reefs, and even the legendary underwater museum MUSA. I traveled just prior to Eagle Ray season (December-March) but still was able to catch some rays on a few dives... and more barracuda and bat fish than I have ever seen in my life. Whale sharks pop up Mid-May thru September, so I am already planning my trip back. Accommodation & food is inexpensive, but high quality & safe. The people in the town are so welcoming, and within a few days locals were inviting us to their live music shows at their favorite bars. We had so much fun!! The diving is stimulating for an advanced diver, while still being attainable and enjoyable for someone less experienced. When it comes to money, I highly recommend bringing lots of pesos because very few places accept card and the ATMs have fees & withdrawal limits. The ferry to & from the island is easy & you can purchase tickets even up to the last minute with card (leave out of Puerto Juarez - a quick taxi ride from the airport). Overall, I had such a fantastic time and can’t wait to go back!

PS, rent a golf cart & go watch the sunrise from Punta Sur!
