Tough choice, all good. I've been to Isla de Mujeres a number of times. Wife and i both enjoyed Mujeres - its laid back, old world mexico. Rent a golf cart and tour and then try the snorkeling on the eastern edge of the island. Its not what it once was but worth some time.

If you can only do one or the other, try Xcaret and the underground rivers. Rent a jeep thrugh your hotel to get there. Avoid the organized tours so you can go on your own schedule.

You can get a feel for Mujeres by spending some time in downtown Cancun.

Use the hotel's rental agency if its a reuptable firm (e.g., Hertz, Budget, etc.) - don't go off site. Use a credit card (not cash) and buy the full coverage insurance. If you use AMEX, AMEX may also cover you as well (check with AMEX).

Check with your auto insurer here in the States and see if you are covered when you rent in Mexico.

You won't need a Jeep on Mujeres.

When we rented our Jeep we spent the morning in Tulum and the rest of the day at Xcaret.

Wear a hat and lot's of sunscreen - its a long enough drive where you will burn and not know it.

Have fun.
