What to Pack for Your Isla Mujeres Getaway

So you’ve already booked your flight for Cancun and you’re looking for the best Isla Mujeres accommodation. Now you have to attend to the business of packing for a beach vacation. Fortunately, Isla Mujeres is a laid-back beach vacation spot and packing light is the norm for those who will spend some time on the island’s sun and sand.

The island’s easygoing vibe makes it easy for visitors to fit in. Check out these useful tips on what to pack for your Isla Mujeres getaway:


You can live on sundresses during your stay here. You can wear them day and night, they are easy to wash and dry for repeated use. Opt for cool fabrics like rayon, lightweight cotton, or soft modal. Avoid fabrics that stick to your skin such as polyester and chiffon.  You can use light-colored ones for daytime and wear dark ones for bar-hopping around the island.

Wide-brimmed hats

The sun is Isla Mujeres is as hot as the beautiful people chilling at the beach, so you better protect your face and hair with a wide-brimmed straw hat. It will go well with your sundresses and bathing suits!


If you’re not comfy wearing your dress over your bikini, especially if you just came out of the water, then a cover-up should be part of your beach wardrobe. Choose ones that are made of light cotton so you can wear it near or away from the sand. You can wear this over your swimsuit when you go on a gorgeous sailing trip!


Hats and cover-ups are not enough to protect you from the scorching heat of the sun. Find one with the strongest SPF you can find and the kind that you can also put on your face. If you’re prone to peeling after sun exposure, a soothing aloe vera gel will do wonders for your baked skin.


If you would rather wear shirts or tank tops while strolling around the island, you need to pair them with comfortable pair of shorts. It’s the perfect thing to wear if you plan to hike or climb somewhere in the island.

Reliable walking sandals

You will be doing a whole lot of walking on and off the beach so it’s best to bring footwear that you can slip on for all kinds of roads. A pair of beach sandals should be able to take you everywear you want to go.
