When we start planning a vacation on a Mexican paradise beach, inevitably the image of Cancun comes to mind. With nature and local culture, just 30 kilometers from Cancun, you will find another paradise: Costa Mujeres.
Costa Mujeres remains a hidden gem that only a few lucky ones have been able to know. This new coastal area has become an ideal destination for tourism due to its white sand shores and luxury hotels.
If you are organizing your next trip to Mexico, you cannot stop adding Costa Mujeres to your itinerary! Here we tell you where it is and what you can do there:
Where is Costa Mujeres?
The town of Costa Mujeres is located in the Municipality of Isla Mujeres, but is located on the mainland, in the State of Quintana Roo, just 30 kilometers north of Cancun (20 minutes if you travel by car).
Costa Mujeres invites tourists to respect the natural environment that surrounds it. Perhaps that is why it still maintains that peaceful character and becomes the best destination to relax and renew energy.
This 930 hectare community is located along 3.2 kilometers of white sand beaches and includes private residences, a golf course, a marina and several of the best hotels in the country. One of them is the Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort Spa, a 5-star resort located on the beach and just 30 minutes from Cancun International Airport. Although it will open its doors in November of this year, the hotel is already available for reservations through travel agencies or its web page. Here you will discover the true spirit of Mexico, from its paradisiacal white sand beaches and crystalline waters to its wonderful vestiges of the ancient Mayan civilization.
This hotel stands out for its modern architectural design: its construction is above the sea line to have magnificent views and, as if that were not enough, all areas of the resort are connected by an innovative system of channels, designed to facilitate the transport of guests by boat.
In addition, this resort has an exclusive area for children located within a special area created for them in the shape of an island.
If you are looking for a hotel designed exclusively for adults, without a doubt you have to visit TRS CoralHotel. This new 5-star luxury hotel is located on the idyllic white sand beach of Costa Mujeres and will allow you to enjoy the sun and the beach with maximum privacy.
TRS Coral Hotel also has a sophisticated space called “The Village”, which has a wide variety of restaurants, bars, shops and entertainment areas.
How to get to Costa Mujeres?
If you travel from anywhere in Mexico, the fastest way to get to Costa Mujeres is by plane through 2 airports, Cancun and Cozumel. You can also do it by car route or bus.
What to do in Costa Mujeres?
For all those looking for something more than just spending leisure time at the hotel, the location of Costa Mujeres and its great proximity to Cancun make the offer of outdoor activities very wide.
If you are in Costa Mujeres, a mandatory tour is to take a ferry to Isla Mujeres and, once there, visit the Garrafón Natural Park, located at the southern tip of this charming island. There you can spend a very active day kayaking, cycling or simply relaxing in a hammock on the beach.
Jump from the zip lines that go over the sea, flying over the blue waters of the Caribbean.
Here you cannot stop snorkeling and appreciate its beautiful coral reefs and its diverse marine flora and fauna. If you like diving, you can go to the marine park El Garrafón and also visit other attractions such as the turtle farm.
To move along the coast you can rent a motorcycle or a golf cart. You can also take a tour to visit the MUSA underwater art museum, where you will see more than 500 sculptures submerged in an area of more than 420 meters.
A luxury Tennis Center!
If you are passionate about tennis, you cannot miss the Rafa Nadal Tennis Center located in the new Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort Spa. Here you can learn with professionals and experience an exclusive training program for children and adults.
Children between 8 and 18 years old can enjoy a weekly summer camp, with fun and enriching tennis lessons. From September to June, more advanced players will be able to participate in a weekly program to develop their skills.
If you plan to visit Costa Mujeres, keep in mind that you can do it at any time of the year, since the average annual temperature is 20 °C, so the weather is almost always hot.
This is an ideal destination to have fun with your family or friends, as it offers different activities that you can do outdoors, in recreational area facilities and also in hotels in the area.
