Take a leisurely stroll through the bump and grind of these streets once the sun goes down and you’ll be amazed at some of the photo op’s you get. As you take a stroll down this street, you’ll be given the opportunity to eat, dance, drink, laugh and shoot your heart out!

North Beach

Isla Mujeres famous North Beach is a perfect spot to get some of the best photo ops on the island. The location wraps around the island northeastern corner and gives tourists quite the extensive sugar sand beaches and turquoise waters to take advantage of. The shallow waters on the shoreline make for a perfect opportunity to take a little wander out into the water to take pictures of the shoreline with ease. North beach is also one of the only spots on the island (and in Mexico) that you can fully soak up the sunset sunshine and get some really epic shots while you do so.

Punta Sur Cliffs

Just past Garrafon Park and its Lookout Point is the entrance to Punta Sur, which marks the most eastern point in Mexico. This spot is specifically known for being the spot that people gather on new years eve in order to witness the first sunrise of the New year (How epic is that?!). Because of this it has been nicknamed “Cliff of the dawn.” At 65 feet above sea-level, this is also the highest elevation in the Yucatan.
