Full description

On this tour, you’ll have the unique opportunity be one of the 200 tourists allowed to visit Isla Contoy each day. Due to Mexican regulations enacted to protect this island, visitor numbers have been strictly limited. Set sail from Cancun and enjoy this special place that boasts white sand beaches, turquoise waters, and a great diversity of sea life including marine turtles, manta rays, and dolphins. You’ll have an unforgettable experience on this activity. Starting with an early morning pick-up, you'll travel to the marina in Cancun. Board your boat and set off for Isla Contoy. It usually takes around 45 minutes to reach the island, but the exact duration depends on weather conditions. Spend the day on the island and soak up its atmosphere of peace and tranquility. Stroll along the white sand beaches, go for a swim in crystal-clear water, or simply kick back and relax on the beach.

On the way back to Cancun, enjoy a short visit to Isla Mujeres where you can take a walk in its downtown area. Included on your tour are a grilled lunch, round-trip transportation, and entrance fees.

I highly recommend the trip :) The Lord picked us up from the hotel lobby on time and very nice. The whole trip was great! Only the boat could be a little better and more comfortable, but yes, it's all great. I recommend
