The Tranquility of Isla Mujeres
Isla Mujeres is a small island less than 5 miles long and about a half mile wide off the coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It is accessible via ferry boat from Cancun. The northern side of the island offers Playa Norte, a beautiful beach with clear, turquoise waters that run only a few feet deep far into the ocean. It is easy to spend a day lounging here on a rented beach chair or bed with drinks from the beach-side bars in hand. This photo was an attempt to capture the tranquility of walking far out into the shallow waters.
