Quick and easy service to go over to the island across from Cancun, Isla Mujeres which is fun and more laid back area of the Cancun area.

Cheap and easy. 2 round trips at the window cost 292 pesos. That's about $15 at the prevailing exchange rate. Not sure why some people are calling this an expensive ferry. perhaps their tour company marked the tickets up quite a bit. Also, although the crossing is quick, there is, of course, beer on board.

Pre booked and paid for our tickets the day before. Arrived 25 minutes early just in case. Queue was incredibly long. We were glad we arrived early as our part was in the shade. The crossing was very quick but the guy stamping his feet singing was a bit over the top. Then they rush round with a tip hat.... More

We went on the bus to Playa Toguras to the ferry, cost 19US$ each return. The ferry takes 25 minutes. Whilst on the ferry we booked a golf cart paying 35US$ but didn't realise that we as we hadn't brought our driving we didn't have insurance. We felt pushed into it. We went to the golf cart shop and after... More

Have taken the Ultramar ferry on our day trips to Islas Mujeres and it is a well organized, safe and comfortable service. Price is reasonable and they keep their schedule pretty much on time. I love to sit on the deck and enjoy the strong Caribbean sun and wind on my face.... And the Mariachi entertainer adds a local flavor...... More

We loved the ferry visit both ways. On way to isla mujeres we sat outside and there was a guy singing which set the mood of the trip. The seats are comfortable and clean. There is also space on back to keep luggage.

We've taken the ferry numerous times and have enjoyed the service and ride every time. Even on the busy Holiday weeks the service is always the same. The lines might get long but you keep moving as they add extra ferries.

We purchased our return ticket at the Cancun ferry dock, this was very convenient and cheaper than paying each way separately. The ferries are very comfortable and a very pleasant trip. We sat inside on the way there and outside on the way back. Outside was so awesome.
