Overall rating

4.6 / 5

Big old boat helped to build an atmosphere from the beginning. Stewards explained all the attractions and safety rules. And then the party started: music, beer, some snacks - all in remaining 40 mins ;) In my opinion Isla Mujeres is one of the nicest islands ever! I guess snorkeling was my best activity there. But they have a really nice panorama view in Garrafon Park, very relaxing. Also pics in the infinity pool are a nice souvenir. Zipline was a lot of fun as well. Worth to go to the other side of the island (outside of Garrafon Part) - great beach! Food was quite OK, but I was expecting it to be a bit higher standard as it wasn't the cheapest experience. In general really recommended - it's a good plan for the whole day :)

All very good. Only the food left something to be desired!
