After early morning hotel pickup from Cancun or the Riviera Maya, travel by air-conditioned van to a high-end marina. Upon arrival, enjoy a light breakfast while listening to an overview of the day’s schedule of activities.
Hop into your boat and stop at the first of your two snorkeling spots. Take advantage of the professional-grade National Geographic–certified snorkel gear provided, and have a blast discovering the marine life below.
After about 45 minutes, head to Playa Norte, considered one of the best beaches around. During your hour here, check out the shallow white-sand waters full of colorful fish. Next, spend an hour in downtown Isla Mujeres, and independently explore the jewelry shops, souvenir stores, and art galleries.
Then, back in your boat, navigate through the back canals of Isla Mujeres, Cancun’s own Venice. Admire stately homes and marines along the way, and stop at a beach club for a tasty buffet lunch: Maya-style tikin-xic fish, crispy salad, Caribbean-style rice, and drinks from a domestic open bar.
After relaxing at the beach club for about two hours, continue to the Mayan Temple of Ixchel (Fertility Goddess of the Mayans) and the Underwater Sculpture museum.
On the return voyage, your crew turns on the music. Sip a cold beverage on board as the sun sets. Disembark back at Cancun’s Marina Hacienda Del Mar and enjoy transport to your hotel.
