Full description

Head out to sea and visit two of the most beautiful islands off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Enjoy a 1-hour snorkel and see the vibrant underwater world of the reef.

Stop at Isla Contoy, a nature reserve known for its variety of tropical bird species. Wander the colorful streets of Isla Mujeres and see its world-famous beaches. After being picked up from your hotel, transfer to the jetty in Cancún, where you will board a comfortable speedboat to travel about 40 minutes to Isla Contoy. Your first stop is a guided 1-hour reef snorkel tour where you will enjoy spotting brightly colored corals and the plentiful tropical fish. Next, visit the protected nature reserve of Contoy Island which boasts an incredible population of bird species, and clear shallow water perfect for snorkeling, swimming, or just relaxing Caribbean-style.

After a delicious lunch on the beach, you will have some free time on the island before we leave for Isla Mujeres. Once at Isla Mujeres, enjoy one hour of free time on this charming Caribbean island to wander the colorful streets and see the postcard beaches. Then, take the boat back to the pier in Cancún and upon arrival on the mainland, you will be dropped back at your hotel.

Super cool tour and great guides We had a lot of fun because the guides really spiced things up with a good mood and great music. isla contoy is a beautiful island with a paradise beach, you should definitely see it. Snorkeling was also a great experience. Would book it again in a heartbeat.

We booked super spontaneously. The pick up was on time. Breakfast wasn't fancy but lunch was really good. Isla Contoy is fantastic and definitely worth a trip. Our guide Pepe created a great atmosphere and explained a few things for us again and again. Isla mujeres is very touristy and we didn't like it that much personally. all in all, we can absolutely recommend the tour.

Isla Contoy is definitely worth a visit, but it is advisable to come with long trousers and a long-sleeved shirt, on the one hand for sun protection, on the other hand there are extremely many mosquitos on parts of the island. The guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well.
