Overview

Isla Mujeres Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, kitchen, sleeps 6

After leaving the airport and catching a cab to the ferry port, you will speed past the busy hubub of Cancun on your way to the natural beauty, island serenity, and slower pace of life of Isla Mujeres. Just a few miles off the coast of Cancun across the turquoise waters of the channel, you will find the perfect spot for a wonderful vacation.

Villa Iguana overlooks the Mexican Caribbean. Your villa has a kitchen, and private porch with a hammock. Step through the archway and onto the sand! Two blocks from restaurants and shopping!

Once you get checked in you will find an island paradise full of opportunity. An Isla Mujeres vacation is more laid-back and relaxed than Cancun, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do. At only 4.5 miles long Isla Mujeres is a small island with activities for all ages. You can leisurely explore the island on foot, rent a golf cart or scooter to zip around, or borrow a bicycle. Visit the sea turtle sanctuary or the home of the pirate Mundaca. Talk a local fisherman into taking you deep sea fishing. Take a day at El Garrafon park which offers snorkeling, bicycling, a zip line over the ocean, soaking in an infinity pool, swimming with dolphins, along with an open bar, snacks, and a lunch buffet. Explore a full range of local food options from around the world: traditional tacos near the ballpark, Argentinian steaks, Thai food, fresh-caught seafood, and don’t miss the Mango Cafe’s coconut/almond french toast with fresh-squeezed mango juice. The island is full of opportunities for you to craft your perfect getaway.

Relaxing and Inviting

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed at Villa Iguana for 2 weeks in July, This was my 3rd time on the island and truly feel that we had the best time staying at this villa compared to a condo and hotel. It was very private from the town and beaches, yet easily accessible through the gate to everything we needed. I have a walking disability, so I needed a place with easy access to the beach and town. Villa Iguana was perfect for my needs.
Great customer service is really an understatement when it came to how generous and helpful Marcela and Patrick were. They had great recommendations on restaurants, best snorkeling spots, and whale shark diving guides.
The Villa was very weIl maintained and clean. It had everything we needed to make meals with the groceries that we picked up from down the street. We also enjoyed the music from Pocna next door. We laid in the hammock on the porch and sipped our own drinks without dealing with the crowds. I did pop in ear plugs at bedtime to make it completely silent from the late night music, but my husband and small children (8 and 5) slept like logs. The music was more of a positive than a negative.
I would definitely recommend Villa Iguana to my friends and family. I can not wait to see the expansion the next time we make it to the island. I miss the island, Villa Iguana, and I miss my Mexican family. Muchas gracias.

A comfortable and memorable stay

  • 5 of 5
This review is a bit late, but better than never! My husband and I stayed in Villa Iguana for 8 days in January 2014. This was our first visit to the island, and Villa Iguana was better than we expected! Patrick was very helpful before we arrived and Marcella assisted us with our every need upon arrival. Our flight arrived late so we did not make it to the villa until almost midnight. Marcella was waiting on us and even welcomed us with margaritas because she could tell how exhausted (and thirsty) we were. We left our bags and found our way to Hidalgo street where there were plenty of options for dinner still open. There was plenty of space for my husband and I. We felt very secure at the Villa, as you needed a key for entry. There was one other apartment plus Marcella's living quarters. The family did have several dogs but we rarely heard them bark. The linens and bath towels were better quality than we usually receive when traveling abroad. The bed was also very comfortable, which is unusual for Mexico. There was some confusion with the cleaning service at the beginning of the trip but once I brought it to Marcella's attention, she promptly had it taken care of. We had more than enough towels for the rest of the week and our bed linens were changed several times throughout the week. We prefer smaller accommodations that are more personal and low-key and Villa Iguana offered just that. The location is a quick walk (less than 5 minutes) to Hidalgo and Playa Norte. This property is considered "beachfront" but was not swimmable due to the current. Pocna is located across the street and the music does play loud until 2-3am. It is barely noticeable with the television or air conditioning on though. There is a safe for extra security. The only thing we felt lacking at the Villa was more space for clothing. There is a small desk with drawers for items but we did run out of space. There was a shelf in the bathroom to store some clothing but we had to stand on a stool to reach it. It would be helpful to have additional shelves built in the bedroom for items. We loved spending time outside in the hammock that was provided. We did not have telephone access while staying but Marcella was kind enough to call in a pizza and have it delivered for us one evening when we did not feel like going out. Overall, we did loved our stay and would definitely recommend to others.

Enjoyable Stay and very good value for money

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I stayed almost one month at Villa Iguana. This is a very good value for your money. The appartment is well kept and cleaned. The bedroom is large with a AC and TV, bed very confortable. The bathroom has everything you need. Kitchen - living area is small - but again everthing we need. There is a nice bar counter outside : we took all our meals there while looking at the ocean. The linens and towells are changed every two days as well as the cleaning. The location is very convenient: 2 corners from the pedestrian street and steps from a small beach and the malecon. The owner Marcella is a lovely woman, she assisted us whenever we asked her. Yes the appartment is just front of the Pocna hotel where there is every night music. This did not impede our sleep: with the doors and windows closed and the AC on. We slept very well. There was a public concernt one night at the Pocna and yes the noise kept on awake - but I am sure that every one living in the streets around were kept awake!!
All delalings before our arival were easy and we got responses to our query within hours.
We did enjoy our stay, we do recommend it. Thank you Marcella !

Unfortunately noisy

  • 2 of 5
We stayed and payed for a relaxing two weeks at villa Iguana. Of course the owners who seemed very nice wont tell you that the noise from the club right in front makes ALL your nights up to 3ham and sometimes 4am a living hell. Maybee it's our fault, we should have investigate more on the pocna club in front. It is a club at night with live bands and dj OUTSIDE. If you are a party animal, it is the right place for you.

Bed is very confortable, the cleaning lady is very nice and efficient. Pet friendly place also. To bad for the noise because this place have a lot of potentiel.

Great location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5
Great dog friendly apartment, very secure. Living area/kitchen, bedroom, and decent sized bathroom, all nicely furnished. Very clean. Close to the Pocna hostel, which was great for us as we could enjoy the music and bar across from the hostel. With all the doors closed, the music was just distinguishable. Only thing I could think to complain about, would be nice to have soap and a sponge for washing the dishes.

A trip of a Lifetime

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to the Caribbean was a dream come true for my husband and me!

The glue that made it all possible was staying at the enchanting Villa Iguana.The hostess with the most-est Marcella, (or Coca as her friends call her) more than welcomed us and made our stay over the top!
Not only did Coca meet us at the ferry to guide us to the villa but she helped carry my luggage! (I was so tired after staying up all night on our red eye flight)
From helping us get the best deals on our excursions to getting a killer deal on a golf cart rental, our hostess went out of her way to make sure we were lacking nothing! She even had a coconut cut down from outside our Villa and showed me how to keep it fresh!

We felt VERY safe staying on the island and at Villa Iguana.

Some of the fun things we did on our adventure was:

Swam with the Dolphins
Snorkeled
Visited the ruins Chichen Itza
Visited Isla Contor, National Bird Sanctuary
Relaxed on the beautiful Caribbean beaches
Ate great food and drank minty Mojitos
Cruised the Isla on a golf cart


Our Villa had everything we needed to rest and relax. (Loved the hammock) The bed and air conditioning made resting easy.The kitchen had what we needed to make our own meals.The shower had plenty of pressure and hot water
The location was superb!
Everything was in walking distance. The best swimming beaches, outdoor authentic dining galore, farmers market with fresh squeezed juices, It's all there!I I wish everyone could have a chance to experience Isla from our "Home Away from Home" base of "VILLA IGUANA"
Thank you! THANK YOU Coca for all your Love and Care for us while we took time out to enjoy, relax and share the love of Isla!!

We'll Be BACK!!!!
