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 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.
