Tortugranja

Between May and September, the sea turtles leave their eggs in the white sand of the Caribbean.

Cómo llegar a Isla mujeres desde Cancún

How to get to Isla Mujeres from Cancun?

Making a trip to Cancun is never a bad idea, much less when the curiosity of Isla Mujeres and its emblematic turquoise waters arouses you. So, if you are wondering how to get to Isla Mujeres from Cancun, but you do not know how to get there or what to do, keep reading. 

  •       Google help. I need somebody. Help! 

To move from Cancun to Isla Mujeres, we recommend two options: by ferry or catamaran. In Cancun, there are four points from where a ferry goes directly to Isla Mujeres; Puerto Juárez, Tortugas Beach, Caracol Beach, and El Embarcadero. It is worth mentioning that the location of the last three places is in the Hotel Zone, so if you are staying in a hotel on Kukulcán Boulevard, it will be easier for you to take one of the last three options. In the case of Puerto Juárez, it is located about 2 kilometers north of downtown Cancun. From here, in addition to ferries, there are many restaurants nearby and worth trying.

Another option that you can consider is a tour to Isla Mujeres in a catamaran. This option is a little bit more expensive because they usually include drinks, snacks, it is more private, and of course a more intimate meeting with the sea.

First of all, the ferry's schedules depend a lot on where you take it. For example, the first ferry from Puerto Juárez leaves at 5:30 am, and from there, they go every half hour until 11:30 pm. In Playa Tortugas, the earliest ferry is at 9:00 am, they leave every hour, and the last one you can board is at 8:30 pm. In Playa Caracol, you will leave at 9:00 am; it has 15-minute intervals, and the last ferry to leave is at 5:15 pm. Finally, at El Embarcadero, you can sail in the morning at 9:15, it has 15-minute intervals, and the latest you can leave Cancun will be at 8:45.
