What to Expect
After an early morning pickup in the hotel zones of Cancun or Playa del Carmen, enjoy a light breakfast at the marina before boarding a comfortable speedboat: the home base for your tour. As you approach Isla Contoy, the natural beauty of the Caribbean surrounds you. Snorkel in a tropical reef and then hop back on board to visit the island’s bird sanctuary and other points of interest. Lunch is under a local palapa, a traditional Maya structure common in the Yucatan, and includes typical Yucatan dishes, salad, fresh fruit, and drinks. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available upon request. After lunch, opt for some beach time before departing for Isla Mujeres. Work on your tan, go for round two of snorkeling, or head into town for a bit of shopping. The tour ends with return transport to the marina and drop-off in the hotel zone.
