Relax in the open sea – Sail to Isla Mujeres

by Starwood Caribbean

Sail to Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is a small island paradise, just 8 miles off the Yucatan Peninsula. Home to authentic restaurants, boutiques, and exotic wildlife, this island can’t be missed. If you plan to travel to Cancun, don’t worry. You can still make it to this beautiful island through an over water journey that is an adventure of its own. This is one of those must-visit locations that will make your trip a truly memorable one. Here are a few of the ways you can sail to Isla Mujeres:


There are many ferry services operating out of Cancun, including Puerto Juarez, Gran Puerto and Punta Sam. The newest ferry port is Ultramar, which sets off from the hotel zone – most cabs will bring you here if you ask them for a ferry. Ferries from Ultramar are usually designed as day-trips, so they may be more expensive. Make sure to do your research before you go and check the latest schedules.



For a fantastic day of food, drinks, and music, sail to the island on a catamaran. More party boats than cabs, catamarans offer unlimited food and drinks (rum, vodka, tequila, beer, variety of juices, soft drinks). They also keep snorkel gear onboard, just in case you want to stop to snorkel while out on the water. But if you need to keep dry, the catamaran is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sunshine.



For those looking to unwind and have a few drinks, the sailboat is absolutely the way to go. Intimate and fun, sailboats usually hold up to 16 passengers, but will accommodate the tour based on your needs. The sea breeze, bright blue waters, and enormous sky all make the trip wild enough, but the best part of sailing are the sails! All boats are equipped with a dining room, kitchen, and bathroom in case you stay at sea longer than planned. There are a number of activities available on the trip over, such as snorkeling, fishing, and even sailing lessons.
