Founded as Pueblo de Dolores in August 17, 1850, Isla Mujeres Mexico, was named by Spanish Conqueror Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba on 1517 after finding several female figures close to a small archeological site which was a temple dedicated to Ixchel, Goddess of love, fertility and the moon. For approximately the next 300 years, it was a pirate refugee. Another Spaniard, Fermin de Mundaca was the most famous (1858) who built the majestic Hacienda in the heart of the island. Isla Mujeres Cancun was abandoned through the following decades and left a few fishermen and their families. All together, they founded a picturesque village which has been transforming into one of the top kept secrets in the Mexican Caribbean.
Today, Playa Norte Isla Mujeres is a favorite destination for nature lovers and for all those hiding from stress. Locals are very friendly and the Ixchel Isla Mujeres condos offer close access for you to go most if you like deep sea fishing thru the Caribbean Sea, talking about baseball and other popular sports with the locals, snorkeling in El Farito reef or El Garrafon park, scuba dive thru the cave of the sleeping sharks or the Manchones why not, laughing while having a beer and watching sunsets which are perfect over the blues and greens of the water and the mainland site across the sea channel.

Isla Mujeres Mayan History
Touring around the Mayan World in the state of Quintana Roo is easy. From Isla Mujeres you can take a ferry that goes to Puerto Juarez where you can visit “El Meco” ruins or the ferry that will takes you to Cancun where you can visit El Rey ruins, both ancient Mayan cities. There you’ll see the remains of various structures, plazas, roads and murals.
Next, take the road to Xel-Ha located 76 miles (122 km) south from Cancun where you can visit the ruins of an ancient Mayan ceremonial center.
The last stop for a day trip would be Tulum moving for just another 8 miles (13 km) south. This is one of the most beautiful archaeological sites on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.
Among its most important structures are The Castle “El Castillo”, the Temple of the Frescoes “El Templo de los Frescos” and the Temple of the Descending God “El Templo del Dios Descendente”. In this magical site, you must swim in the turquoise sea waters with the skyline of the ancient city at the hill top.
If interested in other sites like Coba, Kohunlich and Kantunilkin within the state of Quintana Roo, an extended tour of two to three days is recommended. Something alike will work out for the archaeological sites in the neighbor state of Yucatan. Chichen Itza, recently named as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, is suitable for an unforgettable one day tour.
Other places such as Uxmal, Kabah and Ek-Balam are also recommended for extended tours including the colonial cities of Merida and Valladolid. Our Concierge is more than happy to assist you.
