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

We are staying at Temptation resort and need a ferry ride to Isla Mujeres on a Sunday afternoon. No car, just us, and we are staying on Isla Mujeres, so on way back a few days later want a ferry that will take us closest to Cancun airport. The resort was no help when I called, and Ultramar's website is... More

Like: Nice boat It is $10 USD cheaper Take from Puerto Juerez (146pesos) not Playa Tortuga ($19USD) and if you have a rental there is a parking garage at puerto juarez ferry terminal. There are signs and people are nice and speak English. Save Money!

We took a cab to the Ultramar Ferry for our transport to Isla Mujeres. The ferry was reliable, safe and very clean. Going to Isla we sat on the top deck to take in the beautiful scenery. On the ride back, we sat inside. The trips were very comfortable and speedy. We really enjoyed the experience.

We departed from Playa Tortuga. Was a great little beach area you could swim with shopping food and bungee. The cost was 19.00 USD rt pp but we paid with credit card and the conversion rate came out to about 17.00 per person. We almost always got a better price using a credit card. We sat up on top had...

The ferry was quick and on time! It was also economical for a family of three to go for $35 roundtrip. It was also comfortable and there are snacks on-board, although the entire trip lasts maybe 15 or 20 minutes. Great service!

The service itself on the boat is fine, and efficient. It is advertised for $19 US (plus $3tax) when you get there it was one of the very few places will not take credit card only Cash. Then I read on the brochure he hands us with the tickets that it is only $149 pesos which once converted is about... More

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
