Combine beach time, birdwatching, and shopping, and you have this day trip to the oases of Isla Contoy and Isla Mujeres. After a morning hotel pickup, head to the marina for a refreshing light breakfast of fruit, sweet bread, iced tea, juice, and coffee.

Your boat first zips you to Isla Contoy. Jump into the transparent waters and enjoy snorkeling along a coral reef. Next, your guide takes you to a bird sanctuary and other points of interest on the island.

Midday, settle in at a local Mexican restaurant for lunch, which includes grilled fish and chicken, tortilla chips with guacamole, salad, fresh fruit, and drinks.

After some free time, hop back in the boat and head to Isla Mujeres to check out the beach or its shops. Your tour ends with return transport to the marina in Cancun and back to your hotel.

Food poisoning
katarzynas821
, Nov 2019
I've had a food poisoning after the trip. The boat for to small for the weather conditions that day (windy day, huge waves). Consequently, the boat trip was far from comfortable. The snorkeling was the worst I've ever experienced - poor visibility, huge waves and no reef. The captain should resign form snorkeling or at least try different spot. We lost lens to the camera. We've left it in my bag in locked compartment. After the trip, it was gone. The tour was the weakest point of our 2 week trip around Yucatan. The only positive of the trip is Isla Contoy itself. Truly beautiful. My recommendation: go to Isla Contoy but look for different tour provider.
