The Destination
In Mayan times, the most alluring locales were often reserved as sanctuaries for the gods—and Mexico's Caribbean-facing Isla Mujeres is no exception. Formerly a holy site dedicated to Ixchel, the goddess of happiness and abundance, Isla Mujeres is now an idyllic tropical paradise with a draw for its near-perfect diving and snorkeling. Though only a 20-minute ferry ride from Cancún, Isla is no party town. The locals here, who hold fast to a traditional lifestyle, shun the bacchanalia associated with spring break culture, instead promoting a laid-back atmosphere that lets visitors focus on what's always been the island's allure: its majestic cliffs, beaches, and lagoons.

The Digs
Bask in the beauty of your own private paradise at Privilege Aluxes, a modern, midsize luxury resort situated on the stunning white sands of Playa Norte. High-end amenities include king-size beds, a separate living room, LCD TVs, an iPod docking station, CD/DVD player, a luxe hydro-massage tub, and gorgeous granite-tile floors. Some rooms boast stunning views of the turquoise Caribbean water, while others others look out over the city.

The Diversions
The resort's three restaurants offer indulgence for any taste: Enjoy a sumptuous buffet at Sabor, dig into steaks and seafood under a giant thatched hut on the beach at Cafe del Mar, or taste some Thai cuisine at Satay. Sip cocktails at the bar on the terrace or while soaking up the sun at one of two swim-up pool bars. Relax with a body treatment at Spa Mystique—offering rituals of skin health, beauty, and renovation. Later, tighten and tone at the resort's fitness facilities before partaking in a variety of water sports in the Carribbean's gentle, lapping waters. When it comes time to explore the sugary sands of the 4.5-mile long island, golf carts are the vehicle of choice. Steer your convenient ride toward a wealth of activities, from world-class snorkeling and scuba diving to swimming with dolphins and whale sharks. Not to be missed: the nesting sea turtle sanctuary on the southern tip of the island.

  • "Perched on the sugary shores of Playa Norte, this five-story resort is the largest and one of the newest properties on the island. Palapa umbrellas dot the beach, and guests can relax in one of the poolside casitas where massages are offered."
