Walking into the horizon

In our new section, we show you the best places on Earth for that idyllic travel snapshot


Our general impression of Mexico has been spoilt by the movies. This is the lesser-known side of the country that not many get to see – and, boy, is it perfect. Imagine stepping onto these wooden planks that seem to lead you away from all your troubles and toward your happily ever after in the horizon!

Jetties like these can be found on the beaches scattered throughout Isla Mujeres in Cancun, Mexico. Major beaches here are located on the North and West ends, where serene emerald waves coast onto soft shores.

You can get to Isla Mujeres from the mainland by ferry – simply purchase tickets for the Ultramar Ferry (or Isla Mujeres Ferry) at the Ferry Dock. The journey will take you past the Bay of Mujeres, giving you a stunning view of the Mexican coastline.
