Start the best full-day Isla Mujeres tour by sailing from Cancun
Your adventure to Isla Mujeres starts out in the morning at Marina Chac Chi in the Cancun Hotel Zone. Arrive to the pier on your own or add on comfortable round-trip transportation to take you from your resort. When you arrive to Chac Chi, friendly English-speaking staff and crew will be there to welcome you and other guests before boarding an elegant 75-foot catamaran. The marvelous paradise of Isla Mujeres will be just within view, and soon enough you’ll be off into the sea to encounter the lovely island first hand.
You’ll be cruising on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, feeling how the delightful ocean breeze and the warm sun will help you leave all your troubles behind. Get inspired as the views of the Cancun coastline and the Hotel Zone become more distant on one side while you approach the Isla Mujeres shores on the other side, giving you a preview of a memorable exploration of a jewel in the Cancun / Riviera Maya area. You’ll be in good hands during your journey, as the crew members will be readily available to help you throughout the excursion.
Snorkel with colorful fish in the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef
But before your Isla Mujeres tour reaches land, this experience will give you the chance to snorkel in the rich waters of the Caribbean Sea if the weather conditions allow it. Your catamaran will make a stop at Cancun’s portion of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world and one of the standout sights of a Mexican Caribbean vacation. This magnificent reef environment is home to an abundance of sea life, so you’ll definitely live an unforgettable swim unlike any other.
Gear up with your snorkel tube and mask, jump into the warm waters and let the stunning underwater views amaze your senses. Become mesmerized by vibrant tropical fishes that swim around you and float through an incredible cluster of coral formations, each with its own unique shape and color. Besides coming face to face with the lush coral formations and colorful marine life, you could see underwater sculptures that serve not just as art, but as a conservation effort to give the barrier reef a spot to grow freely.
Relax and enjoy a buffet lunch at a private Isla Mujeres beach club
After your snorkeling jaunt, return to your catamaran and dry yourself, then continue cruising on your way to your Isla Mujeres tour. When your vessel finally reaches the island, get ready for a day of fun, games and lounging around at a private beach club. Feel like a VIP while relaxing on hammocks, refreshing with some beverages, getting your perfect tan and listening to the whoosh of the Caribbean waves.
To really get the most of your time on the island, you’ll have time to try out some fun games at the beach club. How about a friendly match of beach volleyball with the other passengers. Or listen to some great music and give your best dance moves a go. Then to refuel from all your activity and relaxation, load up on some good food with a nice buffet lunch that includes favorites like burgers, while also providing a healthier salad bar option.
Tour Isla Mujeres at your own pace and shop for souvenirs
Follow up your delicious lunch by taking a tour of Isla Mujeres by foot, allowing you to be part of a unique encounter with the local islanders and their traditions. Like a lot of islands in Mexico, Isla Mujeres is alluring with the added twist of charming shops and interesting architecture. Explore the colorful streets and shops where you can browse around until you find that perfect souvenir or delicious street-food snack. With beautiful and affordable crafts, you can take home a true slice of Mexico’s artisan wonders. Make sure to take photos with the murals and artworks you might find along the streets. Fall in love with the peaceful and chilled out style of this Caribbean wonder.
You could find yourself next to statues that immortalize important figures of this island, not to mention allusions to the rich Mayan culture. Here are some fun facts to keep in mind during your Isla Mujeres tour: the island’s history dates back to 1,500 years ago when the Mayans established it as a sanctuary for Ixchel, goddess of the moon, medicine and fertility. When the Europeans arrived to this island in the 16th century, they dubbed it Isla Mujeres, the Island of Women, because of the multitude of statues that had remained in honor of goddess Ixchel. Her presence is still honored today, so don’t be surprised during your sightseeing walk if you find that some local businesses are named after her.
Delight in more dancing, music and amusement on your sail back
Once you’ve explored the colorful streets, culture and history of Isla Mujeres, it’ll be time to say goodbye to this charming slice of paradise. Get back aboard the catamaran for your sail back to Cancun as the day winds to an end. But not only will you get amazing views of the Mexican Caribbean coast and the turquoise colors of the water — you’ll also get to have some good fun while the catamaran cruises back to the mainland!
Your crew will turn the catamaran into a true party boat, getting you into the festive atmosphere as they crank up the music and get your body rocking and moving to the beats. While you dance, refresh under the Cancun sun with a nice selection of drinks from the catamaran’s national open bar, really getting you to revel your afternoon away. This full-day tour of Isla Mujeres really has it all — exploring, sunbathing, snorkeling, playing and partying it up in the Caribbean Sea!
