2016 WMF Retreat Location ~ Isla Mujeres

We Move Forward takes place on Isla Mujeres – The Island of Women – Mexico. ‘Isla’ is a quaint Caribbean island, just a short 17 minute ferry ride from Cancun. Historically, Isla is a fishing village and although it has been discovered by tourists it still retains its charming atmosphere. The colorful downtown area, known as ‘Centro’ is four by six blocks – perfect for exploring by foot. The traditional town square, vibrant homes, and many shops, restaurants and cafes add to its appeal. The climate in March is perfect with the average temperatures ranging between 23 and 28 celsius.

Getting to Isla Mujeres ~ It’s Fun & Easy!

WMF participants book return flights to and from Cancun, travel by shuttle to the ferry dock and enjoy a quick ride over the brilliant turquoise Caribbean waters, and then sink their toes into the white sandy beaches on Isla.  For more travel information click here.


Isla Mujeres has a wide range of accommodations from simple and economical, to luxurious elegance. We Move Forward is held at the newly renovated MIA Reef Hotel where many participants choose to stay; however, there are many other options available on Isla and our travel section provides you with the information you will need to find accommodation that meets your needs.  NOTE: You will want to act quickly and reserve accommodation as soon as possible, as Isla is a popular destination, and March is a busy month.  The sooner you register for We Move Forward, reserve flight and hotel the better, as prices go up as time goes by.  For more details on accommodation, click here.
