The diving is excellent; I have a friend that's a dive master there, she works out of Aqua Adventures Eco Divers. If you're not certified, you can still take a 30 minute class and dive the reef, which is about 30 feet down. If you're certified, you can dive the shipwrecks, they're amazing. This time of year the whale sharks are around, and that's an incredible snorkeling trip. They're unbelievably huge and docile. Her name is Claire Potter Hernandez, she's a british ex-pat. North Beach is one of the best beaches in the world, crystal clear water and pristine white sand. Rent a golf cart to get around, the island isn't that big, but you'll want to be mobile as restaurants and bars are spotted all around the island. If you're like me and don't like the resort thing, but like to go off on your own and explore a place, you'll love Mujeres. Night life is great, but a bit more laid back than the Cancun thing, which I never really cared for anyway, myself.

There's a cuban restaurant one block off the main drag that's great, but I forget the name. A lady from Havana runs it. You can't go wrong, really, with seafood anywhere on the island.

Tulum is also a great place, but has gotten expensive in the last few years. There are a lot of expat chefs running restaurants there, but the real draw for the whole region are the killer beaches and clear water.

There's plenty to do, it's just up to you as to what you want to spend your time on.
