Isla Mujeres is a charming and picturesque Mexican island of stunning beauty, located just eight miles off the coast of Cancun in the Caribbean Sea. Called Ekab in Mayan times, it used to be a sanctuary for Ix Chel their fertility goddess (hence the name: Mujeres means Women). Discovered in 1517 by Francisco Hernandez de Cordova, it was uninhabited until the 19th century when a group of pirates and fishermen arrived and started a little community.
