Structure of the Tour
We will pick you up to your hotel and take you to the pier. We wil get you to Isla Contoy in just 40 minutes on board of our large and comfortable speedboats. Before reaching the island, we will make a stop at the reef just south of it for an optional 40-minute snorkeling session at the tip of the largest second coral reef barrier in the world, the "Mesoamerican Reef Barrier".
After snorkeling, the island is just 10 minutes away. While we aproach it, we can enjoy the breath-taking view. We will disembark on the pier next to one of the beaches where a small tranquil bay is formed, resembling a natural pool with crystal-clear waters (just like in the main picture)!
The guides will lead a 30-minute walk around the island to visit the museum (optional), an internal lagoon where many bird species nest, a set of trails that lead to the other side of the island, and finally the tower, where you can appreciate the magnificent view of the entire island.
After all that, we will probably you will be hungry so we will go for a delicious lunch! We will prepare you a delicious "Tikin Xic" fish (a traditional recipe from Yucatan), grilled chicken, guacamole, salad, bread, and seasonal fruits.
Water and sodas are available on the boats at all times, and after snorkeling, so is beer. After lunch, we will rest on the beaches of the island for 90 minutes, where you will get a chance to get a nice tan, swim in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, or play with the friendly mantas.
We will be back to Punta Sam around 3:30pm.
We will then leave towards "Isla Mujeres", a delightful island with tons of history. For one hour, we will walk (and maybe shop) around the small streets in the central part of the island before we take the boat back to the Punta Sam pier in Cancun around 4 PM.
