Congratulations to all the winners of the Fourth Edition of the International Women's Fishing Tournament "La Dorada del Caribe"!

For us it was an honor to be part of this great celebration!

# IslaMujeres🌴 remains a benchmark for international sports events, and proof of this is the success of the International Women's Sport Fishing Tournament "La Dorada del Caribe" which attracted fishermen from different parts of Mexico , United States and Canada.

In #IslaMujeres we value and promote the artistic development of the community, so every Sunday we present  "Noches Mágicas", an ideal place for all island families to share quality time.

If you come to # IslaMujeres🌴 on vacation be sure to bring a souvenir🎁 to your family or friends! The artisans of the island are waiting for you with their best pieces,
