Product Description

Franko’s Isla Mujeres Reef Creatures guide shows you all the places and wildlife that you’ll see on your next trip. This 6″x9″ fish card is waterproof and hole-punched to be attached to your dive gear or neatly stored in your dive log.

Isla Mujeres and its smaller islands have grown up around the coral reefs off Mexico’s Cancun coast. The smaller islands include Isla Chico and Isla Tiburon. The islands are connected by passenger and vehicle ferries to Isla Contoy, Puerto Juarez, Punta Sam, and Cancun.

The islands are surrounded by several wrecks, and each site has become a gathering point for more reef growth and invertebrate formations that attract a large variety of reef creatures. The guide plots the locations of the popular shipwreck sites for snorkeling and wreck diving among the local reefs.

Sites include:
Whale Shark Rocks (Rocas de Tiburon Ballena) Boat dive for scuba or snorkeling. Lucky divers see whale sharks or manta rays.

Cave of the Sleeping Sharks (Cueva de las Tiburones Dormidos) Boat dive for scuba diving among sharks at 65 feet of depth.

Ultrafreeze (El Frio) Boat dive eight miles east for scuba diving on sunken cargo ship at 90-100 feet.

Arrecife de las Barracudas Boat dive for scuba diving to 55 feet.

El Chaeirel Boat dive to shipwreck at 80 feet depth.

Arrecife Tavos Scuba or snorkeling to 30 feet.

Arrecife de Banderas Boat dive for scuba or snorkeling to 30 feet.

El Jiguero Boat or shore dive for scuba or snorkeling at depths of 30-50 feet.

Arrecife Manchones Boat dive for scuba or snorkeling to 30 feet.

Other popular reefs and beaches include: Playa Norte (Coco Beach), La Cadena Reef, Playa Media Luna, Sea Wall Walk, Playa Paraiso, and Playa Mexico.

Other major attractions of Isla Mujeres include:
Villa Pirata and Dolphin Discovery Interact with amazing dolphins aftre a 20-minute boat ride over the world’s most beautiful turquoise waters from Cancun’s Playa Langosta.

Sea Turtle Farm Sea turtle eggs are collected, incubated and hatched. Then the little turtles are released into the sea by children.

Playa Lancheros Calm snorkeling from shore. Fabulous restaurants serve wonderfully prepared Tikin Xic fish.

The Lighthouse at the southern end of Isla Mujeres sits at the high spot of Quintana Roo at 140 feet.

El Garrafon The famous reef is perfect for snorkeling. Walk to the lighthouse, Mayan ruins, and a sculpture park. Try their zipline ride or bungee jumping.

The Mayan Temple is dedicated to Ixchel, the Goddess of Fertility. These beautiful ruins have been worn by hurricanes.

Hacienda Mundaca In 1858 retired pirate Fermin Mundaca dedicated his fortune to build a home and garden for his beloved 21-year-old “La Triguena” (“The Brunette”). However she ran off with a young man and Mundaca died alone and insane. See his gardens, a small zoo, and his empty grave– with a skull and crossbones marker carved by Mundaca himself.

Other major visitor attractions include Isla Mujeres Centro Plaza, the convention center, Colonia Salinas, Seashell house (Casa Concha), Colonia Gloria, and the marina.

The other side of the guide shows nearly one hundred different species of fish and reef creatures that make their home around the islands. Each is shown in full color, and the waterproof card makes it easy to take along to compare what you’re seeing to the picture and identify all the wildlife.
