Thanks to its fantastic biodiversity, Contoy Island is a wonderful place for pelicans, storks, sparrows, cormorants and many other bird species. Do not let this perfect opportunity pass if you love all these beautiful creatures.
You arrive on our large, comfortable speed boats in just 40 minutes. Before we go to Isla Contoy, we stop at the reef just south of it for an optional 40-minute snorkeling trip at the end of the world's second largest coral reef barrier, the "Mesoamerican Reef Barrier". After the snorkeling session it is only 10 minutes to reach Contoy.
There is a beautiful 30-minute walk around the island to visit the museum, visit a lagoon where many species of birds nest, a series of paths leading to the other side of the island and finally the tower, where you have a great view the whole island.
Enjoy your delicious "Tikin Xic" fish (a traditional recipe from Yucatan. Enjoy about 1.5 hours on the beach for a bit of sunbathing, swimming in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, or just playing with the friendly manta rays. Around 15h30 we are back at Punta Sam. Then we head for Isla Mujeres for a one-hour stop in the central part of this beautiful island.
We say goodbye to Isla Mujeres and return to the Riviera Maya with a day full of fantastic impressions!
