Isla Mujeres is a paradise-like destination situated in the Central America on the place of the old Maya tribes, also still carrying on their vast and interesting traditions. Along with the traditions, they borrowed from their predecessors also the stories of the pirates that used to howl the seas in order to become richer, more powerful, and respected among other pirates.
In the historic times, pre-Columbian to be more exact, this island was the place of serving the Mayan goddess responsible for childbirth and healthcare, respectively medicine, on her name, Ix Chel. The present name of the island, Isla Mujeres, was given by the Spanish at their first arrival, approximately in the 16th century, because of the multiple statues and drawings that would represent the female sacred goddesses that would rule
over this land.
A temple, which was standing up since the times of the Mayans, used to be found on this island, but a tragic event in 1988 destroyed most of the temple, leaving only the foundation and a really small part of the temple that used to be once. The tragic event is the Hurricane Gilbert, one that challenged this land pretty hard.
