This is the second straight year we have gone on this trip, it was hard to believe but they did such an awesome job again. We had a great time last year and it was even better this year. The crew was absolutely amazing.

I am VERY disappointed with this excursion. Too many people, you really feel like a bunch of sheeps, all going at the same place and doing the same thing. We took the excursion to Isla Mujeres, which is a wonderful place. But the boat was...More

What a lovely outing with Asterix Tours. Alba Boixe with Sunrise Travel assured us that we should go with Asterix even though I had read about other boats. The day was exceptional with snorkeling, swimming, exploring the island, and eating delicious fresh fish for lunch....More

Hasbamd and I would love to go to isla contoy in may when in Mexico. We do not wish to visit isla mujeres also. Can anyone recommend a good tour company to visit isla contoy who will also do some snorkeling on the way?

we travelled with Tui so booked with their rep cost about £215 for 2 adults. worth every penny. this includes visit to isla mejures not sure if any do solely isla Contoy. Enjoy ☉☉☉
We are keen to visit Contoy when we visit Mexico with our two children but they are quite young (one is 2 and the other is just 5 months). Is it too long a trip for such young children? Just wondering if it would be best left for another time. Any advice would be most appreciated.
