Trip Description

Located approximately 30 km north of Isla Mujeres, protected by the Mexican government and declared National park, it only allow 200 visitors per day (would you be one of them) and only a few supervised your operators have permission

Isla Contoy is a sanctuary to approximately 152 marine birds, 4 turtle species and Ixlache reef full of colorful fishes and stunning coral reefs, which sets the beginning of the second longest reef barrier of the world

Once in Isla Contoy enjoy a guided walk around the island visiting the museum and birds lagoons, next you can go for a walk along the miles of “snow” white sand beaches or work on your suntan while we cook a Tikin-Xic style fresh fish (Typical local recipe).

If you are visiting us from Cancun, Playa del Carmen or the Mayan Riviera we will also take you to visit Isla Mujeres downtown for 1-hour shopping

If you are staying in Riviera Maya on the mainland, we start at 8:30 am From Punta Sam towards Isla Mujeres for a 20-minute speed boat ride and arrive back to Punta Sam around 3:30 pm (with round-trip ground transportation options available to any Riviera Maya location.)

If you are already in Isla Mujeres, you will be on a separate tour and will start your day directly from the DC Explorer office meeting point.
