Playa Tortugas is a very nice and well kept beach. The water is always nice and never too rough. The beach bar is always a must visit.

This is a dirty beach surrounded with ferry boats and commercial catamarans. The access is through a dirty parking lot and should only be used to take the ferry to Islas Mujeres.

Made a short visit here on our way to catch the ferry to Isla Mujeres. A busy place with little shops, and bars and a lot of local flavor.

Public beach, could get crowded, not the greatest value for money food, but it's free with a possibility to park free of charge at the parking nearby. Ferries to Isla Mujeres depart from here.

I wanted an authentic local flavor and I got it at this restaurant. Lots of locals recommended the affordable food and I ordered the cóctel mixto de camarón, pescado, y pulpo. DELICIOUS. There were several bungee jumpers too. Vibrant location.
