“Bungee Jump Tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Joseph at the Bungee Jump tower was SO NICE. He let me climb the tower just to see the view - without jumping. It was worth the climb.

“Ferry to Isla Mujeres”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

If you take the Ferry here to go to Isla Mujeres, go early in the morning because sometimes they cancel the Ferry on the way back to Playa Tortuga, then you have to take the one that goes to the Embarcadero of Puerto Juarez. So, if you have a car parked at Playa Tortugas, then Puerto Juarez is far away but the Embaradero is .80cents us to get back to Playa Tortugas, almost next to each other.

“A fun beach with lots of attractions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Go there to bungee jump, or watch others bungee jump. Or just rent a jetski or boat or take the ferry to Isla Mujeres. Also has good bars and lots of entertainment.
