One of the greatest ideas for a day trip is visiting an island. We are sure you probably know Cozumel and Holbox , even Isla Mujeres. But, there is an island that is almost unknown by many of the visitors that come to Riviera Maya far from the crowded places and not as common as the rest. You will not find a single hotel at the island, it remains uninhabited. No stores, no restaurants and no transportation in order to preserve its natural beauty. Contoy Island was declared National Park in 1998, it is a sanctuary to approximately 152 marine bird types and 4 turtle species.
Start your day with an unforgettable snorkeling experience at “Ixlache” reef full of colorful fishes and stunning coral reefs, which sets the beginning of the second longest reef barrier of the world. This unique adventure is followed by a walking tour in the island. Enjoy its white sand beaches, its museum, mangroves and amazing lagoon birds.
Bathing suit, beach towel, sandals or diving shoes, biodegradable sun protection or sun block, sunglasses, hat, water camera, T-shirt, shorts and money for souvenirs. Is there shopping ???
