Isla Contoy is located at the confluence of the Caribbean ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 25 kilometers north-west of Isla Mujeres. The island is only 9 Km in length and has a surface area of 300 hectares. Isla Contoy is considered the most important nesting place of sea birds in all of the Mexican Caribbean. 

The island is protected by the Mexican government since 1961. It was declared a Protected National Park at the beggining of 1998. Only a few tour companies have permission to bring guests to the island and only 200 visitors are allowed daily.

Besides its unparalleled beauty, secluded sandy white beaches and lush palm trees, the island boasts more than a hundred and fifty (150) migrating and resident bird species. The most numerous and easy to observe are the frigate, the brown pelican and the double-crested cormorant. Isla Contoy is also an important nesting place for sea turtles

Once on board, our first stop will be to the reef for a snorkeling tour, where you will witness the astonishing marine life that the Caribbean sea has to offer. Back on board and we're heading to Isla Contoy where we will spend approximately 3 hours on the island. Buffet style lunch will be serve.

You will have time to relax and enjoy some of the best beach in the world and swim in the pristine clear water of the Caribbean. You can snorkel right off the beach, or enjoy a calm walk in the jungle to observe more than 150 different species of birds the island holds.

Now it's time to go back on board but this time we're sailing toward the center of Isla Mujeres, where you'll find a charming typical village of the Caribbean. Once downtown Isla Mujeres you'll enjoy free time to go visit, do some shopping or simply lay on the beach some more!

We board one last time and we're going back to Cancun. On the way back our staff will make sure you stand up and dance, maybe have a few tequila boom boom!

      • You can change the date of any tour without penalty IF you call before 2:00 PM on the day before the tour.
      • IMPORTANT: We have the right to cancel or exchange any portion of this tour due to weather, availability, road construction or any other reason without notice. We always try to provide the exact service above however, there are times it is out of our control. We will offer other "parks/activities" near the area if something is closed. If you decide not take any other option or if none is available we will charge you the web site price for the services that you were able to do. Example; if you have Tulum and a snorkeling trip planned, you cannot snorkel; we will charge you as if you only went to Tulum. The most expensive part of this trip is the van, gas and driver for the day.
      • We have the most flexible cancellation policy in Cancun and we will only keep your deposit IF we are charged by the tour operator.Reser
