Just did a day cruise on a catamaran to Isla Mujeres, including snorkeling at a coral reef, a lovely meal at a local restaurant/local food that was excellent, and much fun while sailing thanks to enthusiastic captain & crew; gorgeous clean & well-maintained catamaran with all necessary equipment stocked in range of sizes and in new condition (Abatros Marine Platinum cruise; arranged via Westin Cancun Resort & Spa concierge "Adrian"); recommend lots of sunblock, visor, rash-guard shirt so you can stay up on front deck the whole time. Clientele was relatively upscale across wide age range: newlyweds, a few family groups with middle-school to high school age kids (not sure I'd recommend for under age 10), a few young professional couples/groups of friends, and a very few seniors (I'm 63, traveled with a friend who's 60...we had a blast :) The actual island of Isla Mujeres has a gorgeous coastline (well worth renting a golf cart to drive around the island: $25/hour and you need a minimum of 1 hour just to circuit the island)...one side (where you dock) is touristy/commercial...nothing special...but the other side has long stretches of beautiful rocky and sandy shoreline and some interesting homes. Must see is the Mayan temple to Ixchel (central Mayan goddess/spirit) which is why the island is named Isla Mujeres (Island of the Women...google for more)--it is a small and not particularly exciting ruin...but...it is historically important (especially of interest in terms of feminist archaeology & theology)
