Isla Mujeres Golf Cart Rentals
Isla Mujeres Golf Cart Rentals And Getting Around The Breathtaking Island
Isla Mujeres golf cart rentals are an essential for anyone wishing to really travel around the island.
It is a relatively small place, about 5 miles (7km) long.
So if you wish to move around the entire island during your stay, golf cart rentals are the thing to do.
Because this beautiful Mexican island is becoming more and more popular, it is highly recommended that you book your golf cart rental in advance. That way you can be assured of having transportation when you arrive. And as such can just relax and enjoy your time here with ease.
One thing you will note, while you are checking through this site, is how many of our vacation rentals have golf cart rentals parked out front.
Golf Cart Rentals Are The Prime Choice Of Transport To Travel Around The Island
Traveling by golf cart is super easy.
It’s also super comfortable.
For one you get to enjoy the fresh air, while still being partially shaded from the tropical sun around midday. Plus you can park them with great ease in a huge number of places. The island is really well set up for them, and they have become the transport of choice for a huge number of people vacationing here.
Locals have golf carts as well but most use mopeds to get around. Pretty cool seeing a family of 4 driving a moped around.
Safer bet is the golf cart though.
So travel by golf cart really is an amazing choice.
Plus when you are booking your vacation rental with us, we can arrange golf cart rentals for you at the same time.
Then you can be assured of easy travel around the isla when you arrive.
So if you are wondering whether you need to get a taxi. Relax. A golf cart is far easier!
Check Out All The Great Places On The Island With Ease Thanks To Golf Cart Rentals
While Isla Mujeres is a relatively small place, at 5 miles long and with the tropical climate, golf carts are far more comfortable than walking long distances. Especially midday, when you may well wish to retreat into the shade or the cool to rest. After all, much of Mexico and the Spanish speaking world does take a siesta in the afternoon.
So travel by golf cart to reach the slightly more out of the way places, is worthwhile. Here are four great suggestions for places to visit with ease using your rental golf cart.
- Punta Sur The Cliff Of Dawn And Hidden Beaches
- The Mayan Ruins Of Templo Ixchel
- The Well Of Hacienda Mundaca
- Dolphin Discovery Isla Mujeres
- Another Great Place To Check Out At The Southern Tip Of Isla Mujeres
Punta Sur is at the southern most tip of Isla Mujeres and features what is known as Cliff of the Dawn.
The striking cliffs offer breathtaking panoramas and ocean views.
As the name Cliff of the Dawn suggests this is an amazing place to catch the beauty of the tropical sunrise, coming up through the Caribbean. Especially when enjoyed with someone special.
The cliff area has a large number of resident Iguanas. They are relatively safe to be around, the only caution being to treat them with respect as you would with other wild animals.
As a note Punta Sur is also the eastern most point of Mexico. So a great place for a photo opportunity.
Breathtaking Beaches Hidden Among The Punta Sur Cliffs
Another good reason to come down to Punta Sur using your rental golf cart, are the amazing hidden beaches here.
If you are in the mood to find some real desert island style beaches, then you will likely be delighted by the ones you can find here.
They are very secluded bordering on practically inaccessible.
However, if you look hard enough, there are some real treats for beach lovers here. Pristine sand and water that is oh so inviting.
And then, when you are heading home, you will be grateful for the relaxed journey your rental golf cart allows.
Check Out The Mayan Ruins Of Templo Ixchel From Which The Island Received Its Name
Isla Mujeres was a home to the Mayans. Templo Ixchel was built by the Mayans in honor of the goddess Ixchel, to whom the island was revered to be a sanctuary.
To the Mayan, Ixchel was worshipped as the goddess of the moon, fertility, and happiness. When the Spanish landed on the island they found a large number of carved statues of Ixchel.
It was from those that the island was named Isla Mujeres, or Island of Women.
Being on the island gives a very unique and easy opportunity to visit Mayan ruins. They are usually far less accessible. And with golf cart rentals being so easy to arrange, visiting them becomes even easier here.
So easy that regardless of where your vacation rental is on the island, you can get to Templo Ixchel within about 20 minutes by golf cart. Far easier than walking, which will allow you more energy to enjoy exploring with.
We highly recommend getting out to the Mayan Ruins during your vacation here.
The Well of Hacienda Mundaca
Around two and a half miles (4 Km) south of the main town on Isla Mujeres, lies the Well of Hacienda Mundaca. Very easy to get to when using golf cart rentals.
While a well may sound not so interesting, once you know the story behind it you may find it a compelling place to visit during your vacation.
The tale is one of romance. As with many tales indeed.
Fermín Antonio Mundaca de Marechaja was a reputed pirate and slave trader in the 19th century. And while on the isla he fell for a beautiful local lady who was known as La Trigueña, which translates as The Brunette.
As with many men who lose their minds to love, he set to win her heart and prove he was worthy of her.
With this in mind he built a lavish and luxurious villa (or mansion). It was to be resplendent with breathtaking gardens, beautiful archways and of course, the well that remains to this day.
But as with many tales of men who lose their minds to love on far flung islands. The tale ended not in the favor of poor Fermin. While he was still building the villa, the lady to whom it was in honor La Trigueña fell for another islander. And married him instead of Fermin.
Fermin was broken hearted. The loss of his love was too much for Señor Mundaca to bear. And his broken heart was the death of him.
Within what is left of the grounds, are some walls, along with the foundations and a partially rebuilt house where the villa was to be. The large central pond, shady grounds with occasional rusting cannon and beautiful stone arch at the southern end, plus naturally the well, are what remain to be enjoyed today.
The ruins serve as a very pleasant place to stroll during your vacation.
Dolphin Discovery on Isla Mujeres Is A Wonderful Sea Life Experience To Check Out
Dolphin Discovery on Isla Mujeres is located on the Joyxee Island part of the isla.
So from almost wherever your vacation rental is on Isla Mujeres, you will be thankful for your golf cart rental to get you there. And it is worth going.
Dolphin Discovery offers an opportunity for you to get up very close with dolphins.
While dolphin tours heading out to sea are incredibly good. And offer a breathtaking chance to see dolphins in the wild. Watching them swim and jump as a pod. And have fun in their natural environment.
You get a much different experience, and real proximity to them when you visit Dolphin Discovery Isla Mujeres.
There is always an introductory briefing when you arrive. After all, most people have never met a dolphin before and there are certain things which are important to be aware of. You are going to be spending time with them so you and the dolphins can get use to each other.
Then the fun starts. The dolphins here are incredibly friendly.
They will greet you warmly. And may even give you a handshake, a hug or perhaps if you are lucky, a kiss.
This wonderful attraction, and it is within a part of the sea which is closed off and protected. This will give you the chance to see the acrobatics and intelligence of these amazing marine mammals, very close up.
You will also have the option to snorkel in a special area with a special acrylic wall that enables you to get close to manta rays and sharks. A very rare experience indeed. Yet all part of the fun of this special Mexican isla attraction.
This forms a wonderful activity to check out with family and/or friends.
Golf Cart Reliability And Service Is The Key To Ensuring Hassle Free Island Travel
When you are arranging your golf cart rental the key point is reliability.
Around the island prices are very similar between all the different rental places. What is different is the state of the golf carts themselves, and the service of the company you are renting from.
So while shopping around for price is likely going to be a waste of your time. Making sure you are going to get a reliable golf cart rental which is backed by quality service. Well that is going to be worth your time.

Unless your period of travel within Mexico is going to be longer than 180 days that is, in which case you will need a tourist visa. So getting on a plane and jetting down to Cancun International, and then getting across to Isla Mujeres is very easy. And can be done last minute if you really wish to.
Just remember, if you are leaving it to the last minute, vacation rentals be it a house, hotel or a condo, could be a challenge. As could golf cart rentals for getting around the island.

It is well catered to handling the large volume of passengers that travel through it each year.
Once at Cancun International, you have a 30 min ride to the ferry terminal which you can book your airport transportation here on our site as well. This makes it nice, to having the driver waiting at the airport terminal holding a sign with your name on it ready to pickup your bags and get you on your way.
If you book the round trip transfer then it makes it that much easier to not have to worry about getting a taxi and not getting ripped off.
Then there will be a short over water transfer to actually get to Isla Mujeres. A very nice large boat from Gran Puerto ferry terminal will take you over to the Island. The main deck is air conditioned and the top deck is open air so you can see the water and the surroundings. There is normally and musical band playing on the top deck as well. Helps set the mood for a wonderful vacation.

Between 9:00 pm and 5:00 am the ferry crosses once every hour.The journey from Cancun International airport to the Punta Sam ferry terminal takes about 32 minutes, depending of course on traffic.

The isla is relatively flat and rocky yet still very lush and green. Though even while being rocky it is still relatively easy to walk around. Though for ease of travel around the island most people on vacation use a golf cart rental for reasons of speed and comfort.
The Water And Staying Hydrated On Isla Mujeres
While using tap water to brush your teeth is OK, you should only be drinking bottled water.
If you are going to be cooking in your vacation rental property, then either get enough bottled water to wash the fruit, vegetables and other produce you will be cooking or preparing for meals and snacks.
Alternatively, you can use Microdyn. Many of the restaurants and eateries around the isla use Microdyn when they are preparing food. And you can purchase it in various places around the island.
Because Isla Mujeres is in the tropics you need to ensure you drink plenty of water every day.
While outside of the tropics many people are safe to consume 2 liters of water a day. In the tropics you should be aiming for around 4 liters a day or more, depending on your level of activity. Plus your consumption of alcohol which will dehydrate the body.
Dehydration can bring conditions such as heat stroke on faster, so drinking plenty of clean fresh water is essential to enjoying your vacation here.
As a further note, because you need to buy and carry bottled water in reasonable amounts back to your vacation rental, you will find using one of the available golf cart rentals we can arrange for you, very beneficial!

The electricity system in use on Isla Mujeres runs at 120 volts at 60 Hz.
Though while it is the same rating as the U.S.A. visitors from the states are advised to bring socket adaptors. While many vacation rentals and modern hotels do use the three prong socket arrangement. There are older places and parts of the isla where the older two flat prong arrangement is still used.
As such if you wish to ensure that your phone, touchpad or notebook PC remains powered up, bringing socket adaptors is highly recommended. And please be vigilant in regard to keeping your electrical devices safe and secure while you are here, much as you would at home.
Cell Phones And Calls From Mobile Devices While On Isla Mujeres
While your mobile device will likely work with the Mexican cell system, you will need to enable international roaming with your cell provider prior to arriving in Mexico.
Do note that every carrier and mobile service has different fees and tariffs for this. And those fees are likely to be far higher than at home. So do think carefully as to whether you will need an active cell service during your vacation.
