The name Cancun conjures up in the minds of many people, endless, pristine beaches, Mayan ruins, and archaeological parks, but there is much more to this beautiful territory which continues to lay claim as one of the most attractive destinations in the world.

The many attractions are legion and while they unquestionably continue to be the main focus of tourists, a determined effort is being made to preserve the history and contributions of many artistés, and all this is being done at Garrafon, located at the southern point of Isla Mujeres in the Mexican Caribbean.

Hundreds of years ago, the Mayan declared Isla Mujeres sacred to the fertility goddess Ixchel, placing female statues there so that the people could worship them.

Regarded as one of the most beautiful ecological parks, Garrafon is a nature’s privileged site. On the edge of a small bay with a natural reef more than 300 meters in length, where one can snorkel, dive, or visit the Mayan temple of Goddess Ixchel , or walk through the sculpture garden.

The Temple of Ixchel.

The temple is located above a cliff at the highest point of the island, facing towards Cancun , less than 30 minutes away by boat.

Considered one of the most beautiful reefs in the world, with a maximum depth of four meters — it is what is called a shallow reef — the transparency of its waters and the soothing currents allow visitors the opportunity to appreciate different types of coral reefs formations and marine life.
