Ultramar is great, convenient, and easy way to get over to Isla Mujeres from Cancun. The entrance and dock is just out of the hotel zone and on the outskirts of Cancun city. There is a parking garage that charges an hourly rate for leaving your car located above the ticket sales center. From there you wait out near the... More

Great way to travel to Isla Mujeres from Cancun! The boats are clean! We left out of Playa Tortuga (which is great in itself!) and I was a nice quick ride! Someone is usually on the boat singing Spanish music and you can sit inside or outside! I also love that you can buy a golf cart on the island... More

My family took this ferry to Isa M . Great boat , reasonably priced, and the kids loved it. It was $19 round trip per person from Cancun to Isla M . We caught the last boat off Isla M at about 4:30. We got there early and glad we did because there was quite a crowd after we got... More

Took Ultramar to Isla Mujeres twice this trip and had wonderful experiences both times. Very clean, on time and a quick ride.Ferries leave every half hour which is very convenient . We also found the rates very reasonable and the parking as well.

A day trip to Isla Mujeres is a "must" while you're in Cancun, it's beautiful and a fun place to spend the day. The Ultramar Ferry is awesome and very inexpensive!

This was a cost effective ferry to Isla Mujeres. They run about every 30 min. You could order your ticket in advance online or at the gift shop on arrival. There are also plenty of taxis in the area.

We took this very from Playa Tortugas in Cancun. Our hotel recommended it, and everything worked out well. This is a good-sized ferry with an upper deck and a lower, air-conditioned cabin. I would recommend the top deck on the way out to take in the exceptional scenery. On the way back, after a likely very hot day on the... More

We decided to take a day trip to the island of Isla . The ultramar ferry was the best and cheapest option. We took the ferry from playa tortuges, as it was closest to the hotel zone. We took a R2 bus which stopped us right in front of the port. The ferris from this port come hourly. The ferry... More

let this ferry service talk you in to renting a golf cart from Cardenas (must be family owned???) while visiting Isla Mujeres. It was way off the main strip, took forever to find, plus the rentals are in bad shape. We had a flat tire, had to leave cart, walk back to rental to let them know where to find... More
