So, hopping on the R1 bus from Playa Delfines away from the hotel district, takes you to Porto Juarez where you can catch the ferry to Isla Mujeres. The cost is $140 pesos (a little over $10 usd) round trip. It takes about 20 minutes and there’s a ferry leaving about every half hour.

ImageMost people when visiting this tiny island, hire motorbikes or golf carts. I hired a motorbike for $250 pesos for half a day, basically. The rental place is directly across from the port exit, so you can’t miss it.

    1. Thanks, Pablo! To be honest, I wouldn’t come back just to do that because it really is so small. The cool thing for me was definitely Punta Sur. I love the sound of waves crashing against the rocks, drowning out all the human voices around me. 🙂 I imagine backpacking the Yucatan was phenomenal. Mexican people are so friendly. I’m leaving for Playa Del Carmen in a colectivo tomorrow morning…
