UltraMar ferry question

On Ultramars website it says a roundtrip ticket from Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres is $300 USD. But a roundtrip ticket from any of the other 3 locations in Cancun is only $19 USD. Am I missing something here? Everything I have read online says to take a cab or private transfer from the airport the Puerto Juarez ferry location. Why is is so much more expensive from Puerto Juarez?

$300 pesos. It’s about $15-16 dollars US.

Agree with jetskigirl. And that today's exchange rates the $19 is almost 400 pesos. Very expensive chairs for such a short ride but it's what happens when you have a near Monopoly.

There are two other ferry services available from Cancun to Isla. The prices all seem pretty much the same for tourists. It does vary for residents and people from Quintana Roo. I think you misunderstood pesos for USD dollars as mentioned above. With the current exchange, it would be to your benefit to pay in pesos. UltraMar also takes credit cards. I am not sure if the other ferry services do. Enjoy your time on the Island.
