One of the best sailing destinations near Cancun is Isla Mujeres. Until recently this piece of heaven on earth was less known, but more and more people have come to know its beauty, so its fame is increasing. There are three beaches on the island you can't miss on your sailing trip: these are Playa Lancheros and Playa Garrafon. Sailing can be harmoniously combined with snorkeling, as the surrounding waters teem with wildlife. Experienced divers might also check out reefs like Banderas and Cuervones. For the best experience choose the season between November and May, for then the likelihood of rains is limited, and hurricanes don't pose any threat.
