Ferry from Excellence Playa Mujeres

Hi there,

My husband and I will be taking our honeymoon at the EPM in November and we'd like to take the Ferry to Isla Mujeres.

From google maps, I can see that the ferry is just on the other side of the neighbouring hotel. What's the best way to get to the doc? Walk on the beach? Walk on the road? Is a taxi necessary?

I'm aware that the ferry there is a little slower than the one in Cancun.

Is it safe for tourists?

We always get a taxi from the hotel it only takes about 10 minutes and cost around $12. Make sure to ask for the ultramars ferry as there are two different operators and the other one isn't as frequent. Don't worry it safe, just keep your wits about you, as you would anywhere.

The ferry is from Puerto juarez a little further away. The port near the hotel is for private boats.

Took the car ferry once, first trip to Isla, takes forever and limited schedule, take the Ultramar.

Take the ultramar - we met people who took the Barney boat and they swore never again!
