How to get to Isla Mujeres

We recommend taking the "Ultramar" boat to Isla Mujeres

Ultramar ferry dock is located in Puerto Juarez a few minutes from downtown Cancun. 

Ferries leave every half hour starting at 5:30 am.

The ride takes about 20 minutes. 


Take the 7:30 am Ultramar boat atmost to be at the island at 7:50 am to then walk 5 min to the meeting location at Mexico Divers in the Hotel Sol Dorado where we meet at 8:00 am


If you are in the Hotel Zone by foot and want to catch the 7:30 am Ultramar boat:

Have everything ready the night before, wake up at 6:00 am 

Head outside and take the bus "R-1" or  also "R-2" at  around 6:30 am  (buses go by every 5 min or so) 

Buses will take you downtown where you can catch a way cheaper taxi (45mxn) to Ultramar in Puerto Juarez.


If you are in the Hotel Zone with a car:

Drive on Kukulcán Blvd. towards downtown, turn right at Bonampak Ave. Go straight 2 miles and turn right on López Portillo Ave, at the bridge. Go further 1 mile aprox. 

Parking available.


*There are porters waiting to help you with your dive equipment and load it on the ferries.
