Overview
Isla Mujeres

When the Spanish arrived to the island the found many engravings and statues of women, which represent Ixchel, the mayan goddess of fertility. And this is how the island got its name. Isla Mujeres is around 650 meters wide and a little more than 7 kilometers long Isla Mujeres is surrounded by beautiful reefs and one of the most famous underwater museums created by English sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor. The most common forms of transportation on the island are bicycles, scooters and golf carts. The island is so close to Cancun that you can see the skyline of the mainland from almost any point on Isla Mujeres.

Gentle Giants

Swimming with sharks may sound scary, but these filter feeding fish are very gentle – sometimes even curious and playful. As the largest fish in the sea, you’ll be amazed at their size and grace.

Where the "Cool Sharks" Hangout

We’ll take you just north of Cancun in our comfortable boats to the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea where Whale Sharks congregate in numbers greater than anywhere else on the planet.

Hop on!

Safety for our guest and the animals is our number one concern, so after an orientation and instruction on swimming with the sharks, you’ll jump in with our expert guides and experience the thrill of a lifetime.
