Playa Mujeres is north of Cancun and you can get to Cancun's entertainment areas by taxi. You can drive around the area of Playa Mujeres, and from the shore, you can see the island. Cancun has more beaches than Isla Mujeres.
Isla Mujeres has only one main beach in Playa Norte, but it is one of the best in Mexico, with calm waters and low levels of algae. Whoever said that finding peace and quiet in Cancun is difficult, has never been to Playa Mujeres. Yes, Cancun has its hideaways like Isla Mujeres and Isla Holbox, but Cancun itself is best known for its mega-sports, entertainment, high-octane nightlife and lots of activity. Travelers looking for a little peace and quiet can still do so in Cancun, without having to drive more than an hour south to Riviera Maya.
Cancun's hotel zone is only half an hour's transfer from the airport, but getting to Isla Mujeres requires an additional 20-minute ferry ride. However, once you arrive, the resorts live up to Costa Mujeres's billing as the “modern luxury destination” in the Mexican Caribbean. Isla Mujeres is more charming, with colorful island-style houses, independent shops and restaurants, plus more opportunities to interact with locals during the holidays. The community is home to one of Cancun's best golf courses, the Greg Norman-designed Playa Mujeres Golf Club, and the marina is just steps from the Beloved Playa Mujeres lobby.
Costa Mujeres is an isolated coastal community in the north of Cancun with a privileged location, nestled between lush nature, unspoiled silky sand beaches and the pristine turquoise hues of the Mexican Caribbean.
In addition, travelers visiting Costa Mujeres can enjoy all the sights and sights Cancun has to offer, including shopping, excursions to archaeological sites and the famous Hotel Zone, where stunning beaches, theme parks, museums, fine-dining restaurants and popular nightclubs are established and located just a few miles away.
