I have used Ultramar several times. The way to travel from Cancun to Cozumel or isla Mujeres. The service is always fast, cheap and safe. However always confirm the schedule ahead of time, as it can change.

If you sit on the top deck you may get live music. American and Spanish favorites! If you sit inside have a light jacket as they keep the AC blasting!

My friends & I stayed in the Hotel Zone in Cancun so we caught the Ultramar from the hotel zone's marina. The trip costs $17 round trip per person. The boat has inside seating with a/c as well as outside seating where you can catch a breeze from the beautiful ocean. There was an older gentleman that performed for us on the trip to Isla Mujeres as well (just leave a tip).

The Ultramar is clean and the porting area is decent, but get there early to get on and off the Ultramar. From the hotel zone, the Ultramar does not run as frequent, so the port will fill up with people trying to get back and forth.

ENJOY!

We live in Cozumel, and Ultramar is the ferry that serviced the island and Playa del Carmen. By and large, they run on time, and the boarding / disembarking routines are orderly. Even though they shuttled people between these two destinations on the hour, they managed to run a tight ship and keep everything clean. The trip itself lasts about 45 minutes, and to help passengers pass the time, there is a live band. At first, I had this feeling of doom that I will have to listen to the beat of 'um-pah-pah' all the way. But was I wrong! These folks are GOOD! Granted, after playing, they do promote their CD, and pass the hat around -- but folks, it's really worth the few pesos!

$17 round trip sit inside w/ac or outside to roast in the sun. Takes about 20 minutes and you have 2 places in the hotel zone where you can catch the ferry over. Return times are posted and there are brochures but pay attention to your zone of boarding as times are different for each zone.
