The town has seen its popularity skyrocket recently, and this week, Inverotel, a hospitality firm, announced it would build two new massive resorts in the town over the following years.

Invertol has announced an ambitious plan to construct over 2000 new hotel rooms in Costa Mujeres as the seaside resort town grows in popularity. Known for its peaceful and laid-back atmosphere, Costa Mujeres is an excellent choice for travelers seeking peace of mind amid tropical bliss. The Caribbean location offers both luxury resorts and calm, white-sand beaches.

The new resorts, which are expected to be built by 2025, are envisioned to be all-inclusive. They will be built in a privileged location along Costa Mujeres’ stunning shores and will come packed with upscale amenities and modern furnishing. 

According to the hospitality giant, Costa Mujeres is set to become one of the leading luxury destinations in the Mexican Caribbean, with a focus on high-end, 5-star resorts. Travelers have been flocking to Costa Mujeres for some time already, especially as an alternative to Cancun’s packed resort zone.

Costa Mujeres: Everything Travelers Need To Know 

Situated some 30 minutes north of Cancun’s hotel zone, Costa Mujeres is one of the most popular choices for travelers looking for a luxury retreat. The area is packed with beautiful accommodations that feel just as lavish as Cancun’s high-end accommodations without its commotion. Costa Mujeres sits right near Isla Mujeres, making it an excellent base for discovering other Mexican Caribbean gems.

These Are The Top Things To Do In Costa Mujeres

You’ll want to spend countless hours enjoying prime ocean views from your suite; in fact, nearly every resort in the seaside town faces the beach. Travelers can also unwind on 12 miles of soft, white sand on Isla Blanca beach.

Be it in a local resort or beach; Costa Mujeres is the perfect place to soak in some rays while enjoying some of the most spectacular turquoise waters found in the Mexican Caribbean. Travelers can also opt for the Chacmuchuch Lagoon, an excellent choice for kitesurfing and other outdoor adventures. This natural wonder also features some exotic flora and fauna, a delightful alternative to a day at the beach.

But the city also offers a lot more than just sun and beach: it’s also home to several cultural and historical attractions, including El Meco, a Mayan ruin dating back to 200 A.D. The small but well-maintained and clean archaeological zone is ideal for an afternoon of exploration and provides travelers with unique insight into the ancient Mayan culture.

Watch Out For Sargassum

Travelers headed to Costa Mujeres over the following few weeks can expect low to moderate levels of sargassum seaweed. Several Mexican Caribbean hotspots – including Playa del Carmen and Cancun – are currently dealing with unusually high sargassum levels. Fortunately, according to the latest sargassum report, Costa Mujeres’ main beaches are mostly sargassum free.

Officials across the Mexican Caribbean have invested in new anti-sargassum technologies this year in preparation for what experts say could be a record-breaking seaweed season. Although Costa Mujeres currently has low sargassum levels, the situation could rapidly change. That being said, protocols have been put in place to minimize the impact on travelers.

Hi, what a pity that every inch needs to become concrete/wanna-be paradise by destroying natural paradise. Do you mean Isla Mujeres when mentionning Costa Mujeres?
