Best transportation to Isla Mujeres

I used to dread the ride to Isla Mujeres until we switched our embarkation point to Puerto Juarez. It is a shorter route, calmer seas, and cheaper than the hotel zone points,

We took the ferry to Isla Mujeres. Round trip for 2 was $24.00 It was a bit breezy but we chose to sit at the top. Quick and easy trip. We traveled around noon on the way over but came back around 3. At noon it was very busy. the ferry runs from 5 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Clean, efficient, fast service and the easiest way to get to Isla Mujeres. I used the grand terminal at the puerto as I was living a short walk away but apparently can go from hotel zone too. Go to the port, buy a ticket & off you go.

The boats are clean, plenty of seating and space for luggage. Pick ups were on time. They even have snacks to buy and free live music.

If in Cancun you have to take this Ferry to Isle Mujeles. Cheap and fast and nice and clean. The beach is beautiful, with nice restaurants and shopping. Make a day of it. The public beach is a 5 minute walk from the terminal.

I had a great experience on the Ultramar. It was very clean, organized, a great price and a great ride. You can choose whether you want to sit inside or on top of the vessel. I chose the top so that you can get a better view. The ride to Isla Mujeras took about 30 - 40 minutes. The water... More
