I've been on some of these boats where you want to literally pay the singer to shut up - - yet on the boat we took from Playa to Cozumel, the singers were terrific. They even had a CD they made and I bought one it was so good. I think it was a husband/wife couple. The singers on the... More

We have traveled to Isla Mujeres twice using Ultramar. They are professional, courteous and the ride is wonderful! Entertainment on board as well. Would use again!

Nice boats to cross from cancun to Isla mujeres. Great to go on the top outside watching the view and listening to a local singer that is funny. Nice ride

You will pay more, but it is very convenient, and fast. Be ready for the up-sells, and tipping the performers on the boat.

The Ultramar provides a 20 minute ferry from Puerto Grande to Isla Mujeres. It is low cost, comfortable, with seating on the open air roof top and on the air conditioned lower deck.

20 minute ride from Isla to Cancun. Live music on upper deck. Comfortable seats and luggage storage area on bottom deck.,most the day the ferry departs every 30 minutes, making it easy to go back and forth to the mainland when needed.

Always great, convenient, cheap, speedy service from Puerto Juarez a Isla Mujeres! Only complaint is that there is no longer a Mcdonald's at the dock so if you are waiting you have to resort to the convenience store food(probably healthier anyway, haha)
