Explore Mexico: Cancun, Tulum &Isla Mujeres Itinerary

Updated: Nov 21, 2020

Mexico has become the hot spot for #quarantinetravel, especially for Americans. Tulum started getting a lot of traction within the last 3 years, but it’s in overdrive now. An area that doesn't get as much attention is Isla Mujeres. A true gem with some of the most gorgeous water I’ve ever seen in my life! With Mexico being one of the few countries allowing American in with practically no restrictions, it’s not surprising that so many of us are folking there. Regardless, it’s important to find the best places to stay, explore and stay safe that won’t break the bank. That’s the name of the game.

The majority of my trip I stayed on Isla Mujeres but to start I stayed in Hotel Zone in Cancun.


Canopy by Hilton blew me away from the moment I walked in the door, but the rooftop is what sealed the deal for me. I always try to look for the silver lining in situations. For me, COVID-19 protocols have made me feel extremely safer in hotels when it comes to cleanliness. Hilton’s CleanStay promise created an all new standard and it shows. Hearing the seal pop as you enter your sparkling clean room is so satisfying to me. The room was immaculate and had the cutest swing in there! There’s a bar in the lobby but I took advantage of the one on the rooftop the most. I couldn’t get enough of the view! The service from when you arrive to when you leave is unmatched. The property is located right next to the Isla Mall which has some of the best shopping in Hotel Zone, in my opinion. I spent practically all my time on the Wander rooftop eating amazing food, sipping on cold drinks and taking in the amazing view.

Some of my favorite amenities available at Canopy are:

  • Rooftop Pool

  • Wander Rooftop - full bar and restaurant

  • Rooftop gym

  • Concierge - tons of fun options in the area at great rates

  • Canopy bicycles to ride around Hotel Zone

  • Lobby Bar

  • Full breakfast (with some of the best fresh juices & mimosas)

Once I left the property it was the start of the first Ariel Rose Intl Influencer Trip!
