Last weekend, when Harrison and I were in Cancun, we did a Dolphin Discovery tour on Isla Mujeres.
Isla Mujeres is a gorgeous little island off of the coast of Cancun.
A forty-minute ferry away, this island offers more than just dolphin swims.
We took a taxi from the Dolphin Discovery Center and got to explore the island.
There’s a little sea turtle center where baby sea turtles are protected as they grow in their eggs.
This little research center also gives visitors the opportunity to feed the turtles.
Isla Mujeres offers so many incredible views of the gorgeous Caribbean sea.
We went to the very tip of the island to see these stunning views of greenery and of the Caribbean.
Ruins and resorts
This island, like much of touristy Mexico, has both history in its ruins and hospitality in its resorts.
You’ll find tourist riding all around the island on golf carts as the most popular mode of transportation.
If you’re up for some zip-lining and snorkeling fun, look no further than Garrafon.
This park allows you to do all of that and more- hiking, kayaking, etc. There are also restaurants at Garrafon as well.
There’s plenty of wildlife on Isla Mujeres.
Most notably are the iguanas that you can find all over the island. There are the sea turtles mentioned earlier, and of course, the dolphins. You’ll find all sorts of birds as well.
(The photo where I’m holding the tiny turtle: it’s not a sea turtle, just a regular turtle. There weren’t any baby sea turtles around when we visited.)
You can’t forget the dolphins at Isla Mujeres!
This was the most notable experience that Harrison and I had on the island. It really made all of the extra fees associated with our dolphin experience worth it!
