We had to park in a parking garage that was a little hard to find. We boarded at the Puerto Juarez location. There were 3 of us and our tickets to Isla Mujeres were only $12 American each round trip!!!! What a great deal we thought that was! It was a fun and fast ride. We rode on top on... More

It's a great service that they provide. It leaves from 4 places in cancun. 3 of them are in the hotel zone and they charge you 19 dollars. And one of them is north of cancun and it's called puerto Juarez it's 146 pesos round trip. All of they have great service

Although a fairly quick way to get to the Island the service could be improved: all the travellers had to wait around for pictures to be taken so they can make some more money and although I don't begrudge them that if the service was a bit cheaper, we had already paid $22 american each (for a family of five...

Took the ferry from Isla Mujeres to Puerto Juarez. Enjoyed the trip and was glad it only lasted 20-30 minutes as promised, I was running late for a date. Thanks Ultramar!!

If you are traveling to the Island and you want to pay extra for false promises, freezing temperatures and grumpy employees, be my guest. Rather go with the Magaña company soon enough. I mean, common Ultramar, you are not transporting frozen veggies. We all come in shorts and t-shirt's from 32C and you turn the temps retardedly down. And this... More

It may sound strange but me and my family really enjoyed this 20 minute ferry ride to the Isla Mujeres. The boat is super clean and you can choose to ride outside on the upper deck like we did where you will enjoy live music and a great breeze or downstairs in an air conditioned cabin with comfy seats and...

Prompt, gracious service! Perfect way to unwind and head to your destination. We went from Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres. Great hokey musician with his guitar entertaining the travelers... You start smiling as you head out or back.

I was pretty impressed with Ultramar. Easy purchase of tickets right there at the port and inexpensive--like $4-5 US each way. The ferries or catamarans are new and comfortable. You can sit inside (downstairs) or outside (upstairs). Quick 18 min. ride and they are very punctual--at least the ones I rode were on time. Ask any cab driver to take... More

We went from Playa Tortugas to Isla Mujeres. The top was full on our way over so we sit downstairs and it was really nice. There was a bathroom on board. The singer/guitar player on the way there was pretty good so we tipped. We did not rent the golf cart from the boat as it was around 50.00 and... More

Crossed over to Isla Mujeres on our own from Playa Tortugas, $19 per person return fare. Stayed on the upper deck on the way over, with a live-entertainer singing for donations. Returned on the lower deck in a very comfortable setting without being bothered by "artists" or wind. Very nice comfortable seats and clean space. Check-in/out smooth and uneventful. Very... More
