Ixchel Getaway is located just off the coast of Cancun on the beautiful island of Isla Mujeres in the region of Quintana Roo in Mexico.
The island of Isla Mujeres is only 5 miles long and 1/2 mile wide and it is easy to get around, offering a variety of delights to all visitors. The best beaches are on the north (where Ixchel Getaway is located) and west sides of the island, where the water is shallow, and calm and the white coral sand feels cool on the feet. The North Beach is the island’s most famous and popular, with restaurants and bars where you can enjoy everything from a tall drink to the freshest of seafood. Lounges are available for sunbathing and water sports equipment such as kayaks, water bicycles and sailboards, can be rented.
Most of the non-beach activity on the island is centered on Hidalgo, the main street of the island which is just walking distance from Ixchel Getaway. It is full of shops featuring typical Mexican Handcrafts and restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, including Cuban, Thai, Italian, fresh seafood and of course, traditional Mayan and Yucatecan dishes. Open-air bars offer the opportunity to enjoy your favorite beverage in a relaxing atmosphere. Check out this list of restaurants and bars!
On the east coast of Isla Mujeres you will find rocky shores great for tide pooling, shell hunting and watching the waves of the open Caribbean Sea.
