I do not recommend it from Bahia Principe or similar in km, it is 2 hours to Cancun, then a boat to Isla Mujeres to be only one hour, then 1.5 to Contoy to be 2 hours including food and another 3.5 or 4 hours back to the hotel. It's a beating for spending so little time in Contoy, I think that from Cancun it would be much better. In addition, the driver of the minibus ran a lot on very complicated roads, full of potholes, junctions and cars. Although the island of Contoy is beautiful and the guides are super professional and attentive.
My sister and I both enjoyed our guide Dorian. He was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area where we went to do snorkeling with the turtles, which was in Akumal. A very beautiful area! And then we went down the road a bit to the very beautiful cenotes and had an amazing time snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of the cenotes.
Great experience seen the turtles, it was surreal. Also see string rays and other fish which just follow you around Cenote is also a great experience max we swam in two separate ones and both as enjoyable
Contoy is amazing! A little paradise. The staff of the boat & the guide Ulisses are really great & happy to make you feel welcomed & at home! Ulisses is a very funny guy :)
That tour is a must! Staff are absolutely fantastic. Pepe, who was our guide, was very nice, friendly and commited to provide a good experience. I recommend.
