Isla Contoy and Isla Mujeres Tour with Snorkeling from Cancun or Playa del Carmen

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your Cancun or Playa del Carmen hotel, then head to the marina for a continental breakfast at the water’s edge. Board a high-speed catamaran for the trip up the coast to Isla Contoy—this is the perfect time to snap photos of Cancun from the water and to see the coast beyond the city.

    You’ll find extraordinary biodiversity and wildlife on Isla Contoy, which has been a protected natural reserve since 1961, and a National Park since 1998. Find out why the tiny island — it’s just over 5 miles (8.5 km) in length — is considered the most important bird sanctuary on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. Explore Contoy at your own pace, with free time to follow sandy trails across the tiny islet. Slip into the water to snorkel the bright coral reef, then relax over an outdoor buffet lunch with an open bar.

    Pull up the anchor for a final stop at Isla Mujeres, a must-see stop on the Riviera Maya, then meet back at the catamaran for an early-evening return trip to Cancun/Playa del Carmen and your hotel.
