Unpopular Opinion: Skip the hotel zone in Cancun and go here instead

If you know me you know that I’m a bit of an introvert. I don’t like crowds and I don’t want to do what everyone else is doing. But, I love Mexico! To get my fix I skip the well known hotel zone of Cancun and head for Playa Mujeres?

Why? There are a few reasons to skip Cancun and opt for Playa Mujeres instead. Here are a few:

  1. Playa Mujeres is a quieter and more secluded destination than Cancun. It offers a more relaxing atmosphere, making it a great choice for those looking to unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of city life.
  2. More Exclusive Resorts: Playa Mujeres is home to some of the most exclusive resorts in the region, such as Excellence Playa Mujeres and Beloved Playa Mujeres, and my personal favorite, Atelier. These resorts offer luxurious amenities and personalized service, making it a great option for those seeking a high-end vacation experience.
  3. Better Beaches: While Cancun is known for its beautiful beaches, Playa Mujeres offers a more pristine and less crowded beach experience. The beaches in Playa Mujeres are often less busy and offer clearer waters, making it a great destination for swimming, snorkeling, and other water activities.
  4. Proximity to Isla Mujeres: Playa Mujeres is located just north of Cancun and is a short ferry ride away from Isla Mujeres. Isla Mujeres is a small island off the coast of Cancun that offers a laid-back vibe and stunning beaches. Many visitors to Playa Mujeres choose to take a day trip to Isla Mujeres to experience its unique charm and beauty.

While Cancun offers plenty of attractions and activities, that not where I am in life. I’m seeking a quieter, more exclusive, and relaxing vacation experience may find Playa Mujeres to be a better fit. What about you, does Playa Mujeres sound like a place that you would like?
