Islas Mujeres is a Mexican island off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula. It’s a beautiful vacation spot for a relaxing time, with tropical weather year-round. The warm blue waters that surround this island with its white, sandy beaches are inviting for a swim, and the laid-back culture of the island makes it the perfect place to stay or visit on a day trip from Cancun. It’s a small island, it only takes a few hours to explore most of it, and you can see the entire old town and surrounding bits on foot or moped rental.
You can visit Islas Mujeres at any time of year for good weather, but the off-season is from May to December, where you’ll be able to find better deals on accommodation and less touristy crowds. Spring break season will be by far the most expensive and crowded. If you travel in September and October, be aware that this is hurricane season, so you may want to purchase travel insurance, in case you want to cancel last minute.
To get to Islas Mujeres, the easiest way is to take a flight to Cancun International Airport and then take the ferry to Islas Mujeres. There are several ferry ports to choose from in Cancun, but the one with the most frequent departures is Puerto Juarez, with a ferry leaving every 30 minutes.
This trip was an epic experience! My sister and the rest of our group had an amazing time. This crew literally catered to us hand and foot the entire trip. Half of our crew was dropped off at the wrong Marina and his crew arranged another driver to pick them up and bring them to the correct area. The 40th birthday decorations were beautiful and my sister loved them. I will definetly be reaching out again for our next trip.
We celebrated a 30th birthday on Fausto’s boat! It was such an incredible experience from start to finish. There was excellent communication throughout and my questions were answered well. We asked if they could provide food and drinks and they outdid themselves. We enjoyed delicious ceviche and sandwiches and more. When scheduling I asked about the excursion and he made suggestions on where to go. The boat itself was very nice. The caption Joni and deck mate Santiago were amazing!!!!! We dropped some things in the water (wind grabbing a hat, etc.) and they retrieved them for us. Overall, they were so much fun, had great recommendations and gave us an awesome day!! We sunbathed on the sun beds on the front and snorkeled (saw turtles!!) Having the inside to get out of the sun to regroup in AC was so nice. The coolest part was anchoring at a sand bar with a bunch of other boats. They had floaties for us to use. We spent much of the day hanging out in the most gorgeous crystal clear, aqua colored water. It was unreal!!! The crew was amazing and offered to take us to the dock to explore Isla Mujeres but we chose to stay in the water. We all agree that this was the best part of our vacation to Cancun and would do it again. We cannot recommend Fausto and his crew enough!!!
Great trip and the boat is wonderful! We stopped for snorkeling and then spent about an hour and a half on the island which was great! The provided round trip transportation (extra cost) was also a big benefit and super helpful for our group of 15! Recommend bringing your own towels because there weren’t any provided.
The crew was amazing and very hospitable. Yacht is nice, clean and nicely equipped and stock. The area is beautiful and we had a great time. Highly recommend.
Javier and his team were fantastic. They were very accommodating and exceeded all expectations. Thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience.
Great crew. Great experience. I would rent the yacht again.
