Sail Away to Isla Mujeres

April 11, 2016

When you stay at our Playa del Carmen resort, you’re already within walking distance of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, but if you’re looking to spend a day away from the hustle and bustle, Isla Mujeres is just a short sailboat ride away. We recommend the tour operated by Gray Line Tours for an unforgettable day. Hop on the 30-foot catamaran where you’ll be greeted by a friendly crew and offered a tropical drink of your choice. As you set out to sea, make your way to the catamaran’s open netting for the best seat in the house. The first stop will be at a protected coral reef reserve, where you’ll be invited to snorkel amidst a rainbow of tropical fish and coral. After an hour or so of underwater exploration, the catamaran will continue on to dock at the beautiful Isla Mujeres, where you’ll have the chance to enjoy a delicious lunch and an open bar. Take advantage of the shopping opportunities or relax in a hammock on the beach until it’s time to return to our all-inclusive resort.
