Even though it is cold and windy for February, we are enjoying the carnivale activities. The street dancing Saturday and the Sunday parade were fun and fabulous. We shop and eat downtown and try to spend the day on the beach. The vendors in town are friendly and prices good. Cute town.

Narrow street with Restaurants on either side with "hucksters" trying to entice you inside, may of them have specials like 2 Margaritas & 3 Fish Tacos for $15,00. Lots & lots of souvenir shops, almost all selling the identical stuff. Also start entertainers, guitarists or street acrobats, Quite a lively scene. There are also a few more upscale restaurants serving... More

Busy tourist area,, good shops to buy souvenirs, sea shells, fresh coconut, but be prepared to bargain. Otherwise you will pay 3 or 4 times the price.

It was unfortunately a wet afternoon when we landed on Isla Mujeres, but nevertheless a nice area to indulge in some retail therapy and grab something to eat. A few hours pleasantly wasted.

A great place to eat, shop and be entertained! Lots of great places to eat. A lot of the shops have the same things so try to make sure you negotiate the price. Really you can just walk around and be entertained.

Time for an authentic day trip! So fun to walk around here, talk with locals, visit their shops and barter (if you wish), find authentic restaurants for real Mexican food, I can't get enough! Very safe...just watch out for crazy tourists cruising around on their rented golf carts!

While taking in the sites of the island we rented a golf cart to do the tour ourselves which many others also did, It is very busy in the Town center which was okay. It is certainly a tourist area with many shops and stores that sell the usual souvenirs.

Area of town were there are lots of small shops, bars/restaurants and small hotels. We strolled around here every day and felt safe and enjoyed window shopping. Shop merchants were out encouraging us to visit their store but they were not nearly as aggressive/annoying as those we encountered in Riveria Maya area.

We took the old ferry from Cancun, it's slow but cheap and there's a bar up top with snacks and drinks. When you get off the ferry walk the two blocks you will get a better deal on golf cart rentals. The first shop you see is the rental company that waits at the pier. Keep walking it gets cheaper... More

This is a nice laid back area to shop and eat. I would wait until after you have explored the rest of the island (Far South and North Beach) before I would commit much time to this area. About four blocks back from the ferry landing is a wonderful street(Hildago) that is only for pedestrians. It is intimate with lots... More
