ees la - moo hair ace

That's the closest I can figure out how to write in pronunciation. As long as you're close, I am sure people will know what you mean!

> eez-la Moo-heh-res

Almost right.

It's actually eez-la moo-Heh-res

(accent goes on the second syllable in Mujeres)

If you want to say it like a local, the correct pronunciation is EES-lah moo-HAY-r-r-r-ayce. Really roll that "r." No "z" sound, just a soft "s" in the first word. "E" in Spanish sounds like a long "a" in English. And the final "s" sounds more like the way English-speakers would pronouce "ce."
