Celebrate the 4th of July in Isla Mujeres

Why is 4th of July a Holiday? We all know that is THE date to remember for Americans. It commemorates the Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies.

For this country, it represents a whole day of celebration with family and friends. Who often get together to share moments of joy and happiness and to enjoy each other, while creating new memories year after year. Also, this party is his own during the summer which makes it even more enjoyable. And don't forget that on 4th of July, the color code is blue, white and red is important.

On the other hand, it is not always possible for Americans to celebrate their national holiday in their home country. The American national holiday takes place in the middle of summer, Americans often take advantage of their little vacation to go on vacation with their families; the Riviera Maya is one of their favorite destinations. Many American citizens take advantage of both the date and the trip to reunite their family and friends in a paradise like Isla Mujeres to celebrate the 4th of July and not miss such an important date for them, enjoying the luxurious comfort that Izla Hotel can offer them.

This event is therefore very beneficial for Mexican tourism. The party has been organized in different parts of the country. Especially in Isla Mujeres! Which allows Americans and anyone else who wishes to join them to offer them an idyllic setting to celebrate this very special day.

At Isla Mujeres, we try to capture one of the essential aspects of the celebration: food. Barbecues are a tradition for all 4th of July celebrations. For that reason, in Mexico, we try not to lose the habit.

Give a Caribbean touch to the party! Don't just stay with a tasty meal, enjoy the events that Isla Mujeres has to offer.

Why visit Isla Mujeres?

Off the coast of Cancun and the Yucatán Peninsula is a small island that looks like heaven: Isla Mujeres. The island is more laid-back and peaceful than Cancun. However, that doesn't mean there isn't enough to do, you are always able to fill your day with water sports, shopping, investigating, and making new companions in that great environment.

From the north to the south of Isla (as the locals call it) you will encounter landscapes that are very different from each other: lively life and beaches in the north, a steep and wild coast in the south.

Punta Sur

The south is also famous for its many unique diving spots in the world, including the amazing and unbelievable Underwater Museum!

Inaugurated in 2009, this museum retraces the evolution of Mayan culture with no less than 460 statues... immersed! You will be able to admire in the middle of fish and other aquatic creatures the works of the British artist Jason de Caires Taylor and those of some local artists...

A piece of advice: if you like the unusual and the offbeat, don't miss this extraordinary place!


Isla Mujeres Center

But what makes the undeniable charm of Isla Mujeres, are its small villages and their colorful houses that you will meet especially in the center of the island...

Shops, restaurants, smells, and music, and you will no longer feel like you are in Mexico but somewhere in the Caribbean!

Take the opportunity to do some shopping and get lost in this maze of colors and houses, each one more beautiful than the other!

How to take the perfect #foodpic on Instagram

To achieve the perfect Instagram feed, you need to share diverse and varied content to keep your followers happy. So here are a few tips to make your followers' mouths water with your great dish pictures.


Because even with the most professional of appliances, a lamb stew ladled into a shallow dish is not the most appetizing.
It is therefore important to arouse envy and make your dish "photogenic".

Be meticulous and precise in the composition of your plate. If your dish is rather bland visually, place it on a fun and colorful plate. If, on the contrary, it is full of color, place it on a neutral and monochrome plate.

You can also stage your dish by adding herbs, utensils, or even a few spices all around.

Also very important: the cleanliness of your container! Wipe off any traces or surplus sauce that protrudes. The slightest overflow will immediately show up on your photo and will be neglected.

The use of the flash is not recommended when taking a culinary photograph for Instagram because it is too strong and distorts the color of the food on your plate. Therefore, use daylight.


The key to a successful Instagram culinary photo is, of course, the angle from which it is taken. There is no predefined rule to find the perfect angle, it's all about testing, testing, testing to get your eye used to finding THE right angle for your photo.

However, a few tips can help you:

Stack thin foods (like pancakes, for example) and photograph them sideways;
Liquids are best taken from above;
For larger food compositions, such as mounted pieces, take a 3/4 shot;
Finally, for less photogenic dishes, opt for a close-up to bring out all the flavors visually.

If you need some examples, you can Izla Hotel on Instagram and maybe show us some of your new techniques.
