Contoy Island & Isla Mujeres Tour

On this excursion to Contoy Island and Isla Mujeres Tour, we will take you to two of the most beautiful and best-known islands in the Yucatan Peninsula: Contoy & Isla Mujeres. Contoy Island is a National Park and a protected natural reserve since it is a very important shelter and nesting area for maritime birds.

It’s a beautiful Caribbean island north of Cancun with spectacular beaches. Because of it’s natural reserve status, the only building on the island is a small museum dedicated to the beauty of it’s flora and fauna. For it’s fantastic biodiversity Contoy Island is a magnificent spotting place for pelicans, storks, sparrows, cormorants, and many other bird species.

The Snorkel

On our large, comfortable speedboats, we can get you there in just 40 minutes. Before reaching the Contoy island, we will make a stop at the reef just south of it for an optional 40-minute snorkeling session at the tip of the largest second coral reef barrier in the world, the “Mesoamerican Reef Barrier”.

After snorkeling, the Contoy island is just 10 minutes away. While we enjoy the breath-taking view, we will disembark on the pier next to one of the beaches where a small tranquil bay is formed, resembling a natural pool with crystal-clear waters!

Contoy Island

The guides will lead a 30-minute walk around the island to visit the museum (optional), an internal lagoon where many bird species nest, a set of trails that lead to the other side of the island, and finally the tower, where you can appreciate the magnificent view of the entire island.

After all that, we will probably be starving, so we will go for a nice lunch. We aprepare a delicious “Tikin Xic” fish (a traditional recipe from Yucatan), grilled chicken, guacamole, salad, bread, and seasonal fruits.

Water and sodas are available on the boats at all times, and after snorkeling, so is beer. After lunch, we will rest on the beaches of the Contoy island for 90 minutes, where you will get a chance to get a nice tan, swim in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, or play with the friendly mantas.

We will be back to Punta Sam around 3:30pm.

Isla Mujeres

We will then leave towards “Isla Mujeres“, a delightful island with tons of history. For one hour, we will walk (and maybe shop) around the small streets in the central part of the island before we take the boat back to the Punta Sam pier in Cancun around 4 PM.
