We booked our tour through Victor in Isla Mujeres. What a wonderful day we had. All the guides were so nice and helpful. Really thoughtful service. Our tour company was Blue Caribe Eco tours. Highly recommend this tour operator. Isla Contoy is a gem and well worth spending the day there.

I cannot say enough good things about this island and the tour. I'll start by saying that I would travel all the way to Mexico again, simply to see this island once more. It was that incredible! We were 5 women traveling together, and booked with Asterix tours. I'd recommend booking directly from their website. I emailed a question, and... More

While Isla Mujeres is perfect for souvenirs shopping, Isla Contoy was the greatest experience in my life. This is a protected spot in Caribe with the most beautiful beach and coral reef where you can snorkel. I highly recommend this trip, as not only the Island is incredible, but also because the whole experience was unforgettable. Make sure you do... More

Amazing day from start to finish. Picked up on time, only 12 in our group, travelled to Cancun in a air conditioned minibus. Breakfast at the port was simple but sufficient. Boarded our boat and set off, wearing life jackets provided, we were warned being at the front of the boat would be bumpier, we chose this option lol. After... More

I am VERY disappointed with this excursion. Too many people, you really feel like a bunch of sheeps, all going at the same place and doing the same thing. We took the excursion to Isla Mujeres, which is a wonderful place. But the boat was packed. 1st stop: going snorkeling in the sea. With too many people for just one... More

What a lovely outing with Asterix Tours. Alba Boixe with Sunrise Travel assured us that we should go with Asterix even though I had read about other boats. The day was exceptional with snorkeling, swimming, exploring the island, and eating delicious fresh fish for lunch. The crew took great care of us in the water and on the shore. Our... More

I loved visiting this island! It was like somewhere out of a film. The water was clear, the sand was white, it really was paradise. It was frigate breeding season which was amazing to see first hand, and the small museum on the island was very interesting. On the snorkelling trip on the way there, we were fortunate enough to...

My husband and kids, ages 8 and 15, went on this excursion. The island was nice, although you only get to see a small part of it, and the lunch was great. But the 45-minute boat ride there--and especially back--was awful. They drove the boat so fast that it kept slamming down on the water, so much so that you... More
