A At the southermost tip of Isla Mujeres, discover a tranquil respite from everyday life. Perched on the highest elevation in the Yucatan Peninsula, this is where ancient civilizations worshiped the Mayan Moon Goddess. Today, visitors can hike atop the steep, naturally carved cliffs and drink in spectacular views of Cancun and the Caribbean Sea. The nearby Punta Sur Sculpture Garden offers dramatic artworks from local and international sculptors and offers a contemporary take on the legendary Mayan civilization. Be inspired in this magical spot.
A From along the Yucatan coast, you can see Isla Mujeres rising from the Caribbean Sea. And it's easy to take a day trip to this special place with convenient service on the UltraMar ferry. The Gran Puerto (UltraMar) ferry dock is located in Puerto Juarez, just a few minutes from downtown Cancun. The ferry departs every half-hour, from 5:00 AM to 8:30 PM, then once per hour at 9:30 PM, 10:30 PM and 11:30 PM. Your journey lasts approximately 15 minutes and the fare is 80 pesos each way. The final return ferry from Isla Mujeres leaves the island at 12:00 AM.
