Full description
Head out to sea and visit two of the most beautiful islands off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. Enjoy a 1-hour snorkel and see the vibrant underwater world of the reef. Stop at Isla Contoy, a nature reserve known for its variety of tropical bird species. Wander the colorful streets of Isla Mujeres and see its world-famous beaches. After being picked up from your hotel, transfer to the jetty in Cancún, where you will board a comfortable speedboat to travel about 40 minutes to Isla Contoy. Your first stop is a guided 1-hour reef snorkel tour where you will enjoy spotting brightly colored corals and the plentiful tropical fish. Next, visit the protected nature reserve of Contoy Island which boasts an incredible population of bird species, and clear shallow water perfect for snorkeling, swimming, or just relaxing Caribbean-style. After a delicious lunch on the beach, you will have some free time on the island before we leave for Isla Mujeres. Once at Isla Mujeres, enjoy one hour of free time on this charming Caribbean island to wander the colorful streets and see the postcard beaches.

We booked super spontaneously. The pick up was on time. Breakfast wasn't fancy but lunch was really good. Isla Contoy is fantastic and definitely worth a trip. Our guide Pepe created a great atmosphere and explained a few things for us again and again. Isla mujeres is very touristy and we didn't like it that much personally. all in all, we can absolutely recommend the tour.

Isla Contoy is definitely worth a visit, but it is advisable to come with long trousers and a long-sleeved shirt, on the one hand for sun protection, on the other hand there are extremely many mosquitos on parts of the island. The guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well.

This day trip was simply AMAGING!!we started from tulum early in the morning and went to the harbor where we had a small lunch.Our driver Diego was really good.First,we visited isla mujeres where we had free time for a bit more that 1.5hours so we went for a swimm and to walk around the small shops.Afterwards we went to isla contoi where we stayed for about 3 hours.Isla Contoy is trully a paradise on earth!The boats come and go ,so every time a group arrives,another one leaves and there are only a few people on the island each time.The scenery is breathtaking and unique. We also had a 30mins guided tour of the island with our tour guide Carlos and he was so informative.Carlos was very enthusiastic about his job and you can tell he enjoys it!Our group of greeks had a really great time with him,we definitely recommend him!Finally,we got back to the harbor in the afternoon after we got through a summer storm during our way back,which was part of the fun!You shouldn't miss it!!
