Por La Libre, Cancún Island to Isla Mujeres

Por La Libre, Cancún Island to Isla Mujeres

Cancún, Mexico. The Por La Libre Cancun to Isla Mujeres race is one of the world’s top swims. The two-race event, organized by Rafa Hernández, is held between Cancún Island to the magnificent Isla Mujeres in Quintana Roo in southern Mexico.

The inter-island ocean course is held in crystal-clear water waters that can occasionally become rough and tidal, but the swimmers are in for a unique treat at the end of the race where they swim over an underwater museum (museo subacuático). With outstanding tropical beauty, the race fills up quickly…for good reason. To stand on one island and look over gorgeous tropical waters to the finish on another island is, at once, alluring and unnerving. But once the gun goes off and the field hits the water, challenge is mixed in with awe and wonder at the beauty of the marine environment.

The field is limited to 300 3K swimmers and 450 10K swimmers. For more information on El cruce 10k Cancun-Isla Mujeres, visit here.
