We had a lot of fun on this ride on the bay. It's great for families or couples. Watch out - you will get wet!

Tok the Ultramar ferry to Isla Mujeres for the day. Fast and efficient. Sat inside because it was tooooo hot outside. There were people selling golf cart rentals on board (550) pesos for the day. We bought that, it turned out be a good deal and was easier than trying to scope everything out once we got there. I think... More

If your coming from the hotel zone - note that only the puerto Juarez ferry runs before 9am (begins at 5:30). If you are trying to get to Isla mujeres early for an excursion you have to go from puerto Juarez. From the hotel zone you can take the r1 bus BUT it will not take you all the way... More

Went by ferry to the Isle mujeres which was by the hotel it's a must do the ferry trip alone is worth it the island is something different than cancun a nice stroll round some of the streets and shops makes a nice couple of hours go by before the next ferry back.

My wife and I used Ultramar out of Cancun to visit Isla Mujeres. While the interior may be air conditioned, the top deck offers beautiful ocean views as well as a great view of the coastline. They do try to take your picture (to sell to you on the return trip) and you will be serenaded by a Mexican singer/guitar... More

Fast and regular service from Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres. Gets very busy especially inside but was definitely in need of better aircon. Very reasonable fare - 146 pesos per person return. However beware of the ports taxi company, it cost $12 from hotel to port but they wanted $20 for the return trip and would not budge on price.

I use this every time I go to Isla Mujeres. I got on a different ferry the first time I went which was the SLOW one. After I seen all the Ultramars passing us, I knew which one to take in the future. I was also able to rent a golf cart at the same terminal I bought my ticket... More

We took the Ultramar from Playa Tortugas, Cancun over to Isla Mujeres. The fee was $19USD, but I used my credit card to pay and got a much better exchange rate (around $17USD). The boat was very nice and clean, and we had a smooth 15-20 minute ride over to Isla Mujeres. We sat on top and enjoyed the view!... More
