What to Eat in Isla Mujeres

Just eight miles offshore from Cancún is the enchanting island of Isla Mujeres. This magical place has pristine beaches, a laid back vibe and excellent island cuisine.

The main restaurant and entertainment area is around Hidalgo Street in the Centro (town center) area located at the northern end of the island by Playa Norte. However, you can find great restaurants spread throughout Centro, the Mid-Island Bay Area, and the Sac Bajo beachfront road along the island’s western shore.
