Playa Norte is by far the best beach of Isla Mujeres, and in my personal opinion, it has the most beautiful water I've ever seen; it's turquoise blue, amazingly blue! It is spacious. Sometimes a little crowded with some yachts and little ships that stay...More

This gorgeous beach is a great place to relax for the day or week. There are numerous places to rent chairs and umbrellas, get drinks and even massages. Stay all day for the sunset!

Took the golf cart from Zoetry...well worth it. Water was warm, calm and even with no sand bars or seaweed. The sand is powder white with fantastic views of Cancun and the sunset. Glad we went!

Your best bet for that would be to ask around the island. Day rate from our hotel was $65 for 24 hours. That'll give you a ballpark to work from.
