Look forward to...

Spending days on talcum powder sand, gin clear waters, and swinging hammock.

Staying at Villa Rolandi, a stunning beachside hotel and spa lying between the Caribbean Sea and glittering lagoon.

Swimming with dolphins and whale shark watching. Back on dry land, get the wind in your hair on the back of a moped.

Sinking into a scuba diver’s eden... even if you're not a diver, a simple snorkel is bliss or go kayaking to discover secret beaches.

Cancun a coastal paradise? Hmm... not our initial reaction either, but step away from the glaring lights and you'll find an island gem of true western Caribbean calibre.

mexico’s best kept secret

If powder-soft sand, turquoise waters, and lazy days exploring a tranquil and undeveloped tropical island is what you are after then trust us, head to Isla Mujeres. Without doubt one of the best places in the world to swing in a hammock, this tiny unpretentious island is just 7km long and barely 1km wide. Just over a mile offshore from Cancun, Isla Mujeres feels a million light years away from that glitzy commercial scene of its mainland neighbour.

swim with dolphins

The impressive choice of peaceful tropical beaches have turned the island into a cult favourite; those on the south side boast calm, clear blue waters while those on the north such as Playa Norte are famous for roving waiters who bring you drinks on the sand. We can organise for you to go swimming with dolphins, whale shark watching or hire mopeds to ramble around the laid-back island at your leisure. Alternatively, paddle up the scenic coast in kayaks, visiting beaches and coral reefs along the way.

To enjoy the best of this island we recommend staying at the fantastic Villa Rolandi, a stunning beachside hotel and spa lying between the Caribbean Sea and Lagoon Makax, a short distance away from the Isla Mujeres ferry terminal. A truly beautiful property in an unforgettable location, it is the perfect place to relax and an even better base for exploring your exceptional surroundings.

Simply the destination for escaping the madding crowds.
