VISTA ALEGRE DEL SUR - A DESIGNER DREAM HOME RIGHT ON THE WATER
Isla Mujeres is a Mexican island in the Caribbean Sea, 20 minute boat ride from Cancún. It's a vacation destination known for beaches such as northern Playa Norte, resort hotels and for deep sea fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving on the surrounding coral reefs. At Punta Sur, the southern tip, there's a lighthouse, the remains of a Mayan temple and a sanctuary for sea turtles.
Watch the sunrise and the sunset from the tip of Isla Mujeres in this beautiful new home with all the amenities.
Casa Vista Alegre del Sur is located just a few hundred yards from the Mayan Ruins located on the south point of the island.
Vista Alegre del Sur, completed in 2010, means 'Happy View south point'. You can easily see why. The house is located at the south tip of the little island of Isla Mujeres Mexico and has 360 degree views allowing for both sunrise and sunset views. You can spend a whole day just watching the white clouds roll across the turquoise waters while looking at the Cancun hotel district off in the distance. Enjoy the red orange sunset and then the view turns into a sparkling diamond bracelet of lights.
Our property, Casa Vista Alegra del Sur is just a short walk from the ruins where the Mayans worshiped the Goddess Ixchel. This is the most eastern point of all of Mexico, as they were sun worshipers. Watch the sun ride over the water just as they did, and bask in it during your stay.
Relax and enjoy the scenic walkway along the cliffs, explore the top rated restaurants with authentic Mexican island favorites, and the local trucks with churros and ice cream. The island is only 4 miles long, perfect for a getaway you can explore on foot or with the scooters and golf carts for rent. There are always plenty of taxi's to take you wherever you want to go.
Feel like discovering some nature? In response to the waning population of the sea turtles nesting and living around the island, the Centro de Investigaciones Pesqueras was established in order to protect them and rehabilitate the species. The center, nestled on a small section of land off the west coast of the island, allows visitors to walk through both indoor and outdoor pools to observe young turtles until they are released safely into the wild when they're safe to do so. Expert guides educate guests about the turtles’ stages of development and evolution, and assist in the release of thousands of turtles every year. There are now six different species of turtles nesting on the island - the most abundant of which is the 450 pound, 4 foot long adult green turtle.
Whale shark season begins in June, with tours running through the beginning of September. During this time, hundreds of whale sharks feed on the plankton 45 minutes off the coast of Isla Mujeres, just where the Gulf of Mexico joins the Caribbean Sea. An experience you’ll never forget, the boat ride from Isla Mujeres will take your breath away as your guide takes you directly into the feeding territory of these giant, docile creatures.
