Hotel Playa La Media Luna sits at the northern tip of Isla Mujeres along Half Moon Beach. The property’s seclusion offers a tranquil atmosphere, but it’s also not far from the more lively downtown area. The highlights here are the private terraces with hammocks, great views, and fresh ocean breezes. Though the 18 rooms are a bit outdated and plainly decorated, they still retain a hint of tropical charm and are cozy enough for the affordable price. A simple continental breakfast is included for all rooms, while the pricier units -- such as the bungalows -- have a fully equipped kitchenette, Jacuzzi, living room, and dining area. There’s no restaurant on-site, and although there’s a poolside bar, it rarely seems to be open. While there isn't anything spectacular about the hotel itself, its beachfront location is excellent.
At the northern tip of Isla Mujeres right on Half Moon Beach
Isla Mujeres is a small island located eight miles east of Cancun. Meaning "Island of Women," the Isla Mujeres got its name from Spanish conquistadors who discovered numerous idols in honor of Ix Chel, the Mayan goddess of childbirth and fertility. Only five miles long and half a mile wide, it's historically been a quiet, secluded fishing village. But as vacationers have flocked to the Riviera Maya section of the Yucatan Peninsula, Isla Mujeres has experienced a boom in tourism. For travelers in search of a more tranquil, relaxing experience far from the rowdiness and endless bustle of Cancun, the island is an ideal getaway spot.
In addition to swimming, snorkeling, and shopping, there are also a number of sights to see on Isla Mujeres, such as the old mansion and gardens of Hacienda Mundaca, the easternmost part of Mexico and the highest elevation in the Yucatan, Punta Sur, the reefs of Garrafon Park, and the lovely soft sands of Playa Norte.
