The beaches of Isla Mujeres continue to attract hundreds of visitors

        For its turquoise blue waters, its white area beaches and awards certifying them as quality spaces, the beaches of Isla Mujeres continue to attract hundreds of visitors to this unique destination in the Mexican Caribbean.

       Although Isla Mujeres has various tourist attractions, Playa Centro and North Beach are two of the most sought after beaches to spend an afternoon of sunshine and sand, and staff of ZOFEMAT (Federal Zone agency), are responsible for keeping them in optimal conditions conditions for the enjoyment of locals and visitors.

  Kerem Pinto Aguilar, director of ZOFEMAT, explained that for the current administration has been committed to keep them always clean, so early hours the crews of workers of the unit take care of the raking and sowing of sand, as well as lifting the sargazo that recites on the shores of destiny.

     She said that from January until now, Isla's ZOFEMAT staff  have removed 536 tons of sargasso during the season when it arrives, which has been a smaller amount compared to other years and other destinations.

         ′′We have been fortunate in Isla Mujeres, because although sargasso has washed up on our shores, it has been in minimum quantities and we have been able to remove it promptly and thoroughly, maintaining quality spaces for the enjoyment of our island families and visitors," said the official. 

On World Tourism Day (Sept. 27) we invite you to visit the beaches of Isla Mujeres 🏝, enjoy the sun ☀️ and crystal clear waters

Turtles continue nesting in September. They nest along the eastern beaches. Tortugranja staff and volunteers gather the eggs and incubate them in the sand in a pen outside the facility. Three species nest annually in Isla Mujeres, Greens, Loggerheads, and Hawksbills.
