One of the highlights of our recent trip to Isla Mujeres, Mexico while exploring the island by golf cart was spotting colorful murals along the way. In 2014, Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans project opened to the public.

The mural project consists of 15 large-scale murals created by well-known contemporary street artists. With the goal of raising awareness of local conservation efforts, the murals highlight the benefits of ecotourism to the region. If you find yourself at Isla Mujeres, take a few hours to roam the island in search of all 15 murals.
