A Destination Waiting to Be Discovered
P
uerto Morelos is only a short 25-minute drive
from Cancns international airport and Hotel
Zone; it is one of the oldest ports in Quintana
Roo, the departure point when traveling to the Cenotes
Route or the eco-archaeological parks, and a good place
to start when leaving on tours to the Mayan World.
Set in a rustic atmosphere, but with the same quality
as Cancn, Puerto Morelos offers a wide selection of
cuisine where the highlight is the catch of the day. It
also offers everything from boutique hotels to large
international chains.
Snorkeling and scuba diving are two of the main
experiences offered by Puerto Morelos, thanks to the
great Mayan Reef, which is located only 1,640 feet from
its calm beaches.
The most recommended spots for scuba diving are:
Cuevones, La Pared, La Bocana, El Tnel, Los
Jardines and the Mexican naval ship, the C-56 Juan
Escutia.
Cultural activities and music festivals are held in the
main square, such as the International Seafront Theatre
Festival in April and the International Deep Sea Fishing
Tournament at the end of May, along with other popular
national and religious celebrations.
Puerto Morelos also has other attractions such as the
Botanical Garden and the Crococn zoo, where the
regions ora and fauna, such as crocodiles and orchids,
can be observed.
For adventure lovers, Puerto Morelos is the departure
point for tours in the jungle, either walking or by bicycle,
on horseback, ATVs or zip-lines. An ideal place for families
to enjoy these activities is Selvtica, where there is also
swimming in cenotes and snorkeling; the perfect balance
between emotion, hospitality and fun.
Getting Here: A 22 km drive from Cancn international
airport.
While visiting Cancn, take one day excursion to any of it's
f ive added values that will make your client's holiday once in a
life time experience!
W
hen I think of travel to Cancn I think of my family. A big Irish
family that includes aunts, uncles, kids, cousins and even those
people who simply want to be Irish. Thats the makeup of the
group Ive been traveling with for the past four years. For each of those years
weve chosen Cancn for our family vacation.
The Christmas Holiday planning starts early when the people around you
know that you are the travel guy. Indeed, Ive already been pestered for
months about the 2012 trip even though it was almost a year away when the
questions and calls started to come in.
The rst question everyone wants to know is whether we will be back in
Cancn for this years trip. The answer is a resounding yes.
For the past four years Ive ignored all of the television coverage that tries to
paint a negative picture of travel to Mxico and remembered one key fact:
travel to Cancn is both rewarding and safe. Its why I bring my own young
children and invite their many cousins along for the trip as well. We create
lasting memories that only travel and the experiences they bring you can
deliver.
Multi-generational travel is a great opportunity for travel agents in todays
market full of Baby Boomers. Cancn and nearby Puerto Morelos present a
diverse destination with a range of accommodation choices that can meet
virtually any travel budget, and activities that span from Mayan cultural
encounters to swimming with whale sharks. This wide range of activities
means that youll be able to meet the needs and desires of the most
adventurous down to the most lethargic... Aunt Betty sitting on the beach
sipping a Margarita!
A key factor in our choice each year is also the ability to access the destination
quickly and easily. The airlines have a number of nonstop options into Cancn
from a variety of cities across the United States, making the destination easily
accessible to a large portion of the country.
These are just some of the reasons why Im excited to share our 2012 Cancn
Desk Reference, your tool for building sales to this wonderful destination. I
hope youll plan on sending many of your clients to Cancn so they can
experience what my family has experienced for years. And if you send them
over the holidays I might even get a chance to run into them on the beach
of course!
Happy Travels,
Mark Murphy

service, youre able to provide your clients with the ultimate vacation experience to places like Cancun. Let Funjet
help you get them there.

center at VAXVacationAccess.com/Funjet for complete details.
You might think you know Cancn -- 14 miles of pristine white
beaches shaped like a number 7, crystalline waters, and sultry
nights sipping on the perfect margarita, right? Right. And wrong.
If this is the extent of what you are selling your clients, oh are you
ever missing Cancn!
As we will illustrate in this Desk Reference, Cancn is a gift to the
travel agent. It is a safe, beautiful locale, with an abundance of
quality accommodations and enough activities to keep your clients
busy and enthused. And each time they visit this Caribbean island
paradise it gets event better!
With extensive renovation of infrastructure, resorts, beaches, and
attractions, Cancn continues to be a destination with something
for everyone -- home to Mayan archaeological wonders, turquoise
seas, a bountiful underwater world (and our new sculpture
gardens), sea turtle rescue programs, and world-class vacation
amenities. Cancn offers a complete vacation experience unequaled
by anywhere else in Mexico or the Caribbean.
Resting on the northeast corner of the Yucatn Peninsula in the
state of Quintana Roo (keen-tah-nah-ROW), Cancn was a part of
the ancient Mayan civilization and is still considered the gateway
to the Mayan World (El Mundo Maya). Mayan temples and ritual
sites are literally everywhere, some smothered by lush jungle,
others easily accessible (one pops up at one of our golf courses).
There is even a Mayan temple overlooking the Caribbean Sea in
the heart of the Cancn Hotel Zone!
Cancn delivers the best of both worlds: the Caribbean AND
Mxico. For clients who frequent other Caribbean destinations,
Cancn offers an unequalled mix of man-made, natural, and
cultural attractions.
Most of your clients know that no matter what a destination
offers in the way of attractions, local hosts are the true soul of the
vacation experience. In this way, Cancn is truly blessed. Mexicans
are patient, courteous people. Because Cancn exists as a haven
for tourists, we understand that going the extra mile means repeat
visitors and new friendships.
You probably already know that Cancn is an easy-sell destination,
due to its excellent air service, incredible hotel infrastructure,
beautiful beaches, and a level of service unmatched anywhere in
the world. But many of your clients need more than just a beautiful
beach to make their vacation complete. They seek fun, enriching,
and novel experiences to round out their travels.
What does that mean to you? More selling opportunities in the
form of add-on excursions, lodging upgrades, aquatic adventures,

ecological tours, golf and spa packages, longer stays, and (most
important) repeat visits. Cancn offers so many things to see and
do that visitors often have trouble deciding where to spend their
leisure time.
This is where you come in. While clients can easily arrange their
tours upon arrival, why not map out some options before they
arrive? Once youre familiar with Cancns variety of things to do
(by using this Desk Reference) its really as easy as UNO, DOS,
TRES!
UNO: Qualify your clients by determining their special interests
and what has been memorable about their previous beach
vacation experiences.
DOS: Map out a simple day-by-day outline, using this Desk
Reference and its extensive directories.
TRES: Close the sale via your existing tour operator partners
(whenever possible), or by contacting our local excursion and
attraction operators (described in this Desk Reference). Its easier
than you think, thanks to email communications, toll-free numbers
and electronic vouchers. And dont forget the commissions! Just
look for the C hat symbol for special commission offers.

ARRIVING AND DEPARTING
Airports/Location: Cancn International Airport, code CUN, is located 15-25 minutes from the Hotel Zone
and 15 minutes from Cancn City.
FROM THE AIRPORT
From the Cancn airport there are several options. The airport has a new fare nder on its website allowing
passengers to save money by checking all available rates, and booking transportation online to all hotels in
the Cancn area. Visit www.Cancn-airport.com/transportation.htm. There is also a toll-free number from the
U.S. or Canada at 1-800-317-1921.
BY BUS
Cancn is extremely easy for visitors to navigate. The bus system is reliable and inexpensive (one ride
costs about 50 US (7 pesos). There are many buses serving the Cancn area, so if clients miss one, they
wont have to wait more than 3-4 minutes for the next (hows that for convenience?). Ruta 1 and Ruta 2
buses (labeled Hoteles) travel frequently from the mainland to the beaches along Kukulcn Blvd, the only
boulevard in the Hotel Zone. Buses operate between 6 a.m. and midnight. Theres even a bus that goes
straight to our downtown Walmart!
BY TAXI
Taxis in Cancn are regulated, safe and reliable. There are over 3,000 taxis in operation. Make sure your
clients know it is a good practice to ask the doorman at the hotel what the rate should be from one point to
another, so there are no surprises when it comes time to pay (most hotels post a list of rates from the hotel
to various points in and around Cancn). Taxi fares within the Hotel Zone can run anywhere from 100-200
pesos ($10 to $18 US) depending on the distance traveled. TIP: take the bus, learn some Spanish, practice
your Mayan and save your pesos for shopping!
BY CAR
If your clients prefer to experience a new place by cruising its highways and byways, a rental car may be the
way to go. Most of the worlds major rental car companies have Cancn ofces, and rent the newest vehicle
models. If your clients are planning to stay within Cancn (the Hotel Zone or downtown area), the bus
system will satisfy their needs. If you have booked them on a day tour, comfortable, air-conditioned vehicles
will be provided by their tour company. Otherwise, renting a car is an attractive alternative for those wanting
more vehicles. TIP: some car rental agencies give drivers a get out of a ticket free card! If youre pulled over
for minor infractions, the card is shown to police who will forgive your rst two infractions! Really!
BY FERRY
Ferry services for foot passengers and cars link several popular destinations for daytrips. Ferries run from
three areas in the Cancn hotel zone and Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres offering a variety of time options.
There is also service throughout the day to/from Playa del Carmen and Cozumel.

Fi ndi ng t he ideal Mexican
Car i bbean Opt i ons
You commonly encounter clients who
are undecided about which destination
is best suited to their needs. There are
also clients who have set opinions and
have done extensive research before
consulting you. Cancns phenomenal
popularity (over 3.3 million annual visitors)
has created an interesting challenge:
while Cancn enjoys very high top-of-
mind recognition, the destination also
falls victim to stereotyped or out-dated
impressions about what it REALLY offers.
Use this Desk Reference to dispel
misconception, and instill your clients
with a realistic view. With repeat business
a cornerstone of your success, crafting
the ideal, customized vacation is an
essential part of your job.
Lets take a look at some of Cancns key
audience groups:
Beach Lovers: Combining turquoise
water and talcum-powder-white sand,
Cancns magnicently restored beaches
are among the world's nest. With
Cancns four distinct water areas (Bay,
Lagoon, Caribbean, Puerto Morelos),
theres an ideal setting for each of your
unique clients. Note: A $72 million beach
restoration project is now complete. TIP:
beaches along the northern coast of Isla
Cancn (Baha de Mujeres) are calm,
shallow and ideal for families.
Caribbean Lovers: Cancn delivers
the best of both worlds: the Caribbean
AND Mexico. For clients who frequent
other Caribbean destinations, Cancn
offers an unequalled mix of man-made,
natural, and cultural attractions. TIP:
Puerto Morelos and its boutique hotels
are reminiscent of secluded Caribbean
island getaways.
Cuisine Lovers: Cancn is without
rival in the Caribbean when it comes
to dining variety. Over 200 restaurants
(many with elegant and beautiful dcor)
feature cuisine from around the world,
plus delicious nouvelle and traditional
Mexican cooking. Hotel dining is superb,
while our unique regional cuisines
showcase our Yucatecan and Mayan
roots. TIP: Cancn City has some ne-
dining options featuring Mayan and
international cuisine and at quite
reasonable prices. Puerto Morelos has a
popular cooking school).
Couples and Honeymooners: A
romantic, warm and exotic setting awaits
the thousands of couples who visit
us each year. From fun outings, to ne
shopping, to superb dining and nightlife,
Cancn is ideal for both seclusion seekers
and activity-oriented couples. TIP: how
about sunsets and ne wine to end the
day? Head to La Europea (a gourmet
and wine shop next to La Isla Shopping
Center) and their lagoon-facing patio.
Pop open a nice Malbec, order a cheese
plate and reeeeeelax.
Eco-Adventure Enthusiasts: Nature
lovers will experience our regions unique
islands, estuaries, biosphere reserves,
forests, caves, and cenote (sinkhole)
ecosystems. Our dive sites are among
the Caribbeans best, while bird-
watching areas, turtle sanctuaries, and
exotic animal zoos (Crococun, Xcaret)
showcase our other natural wonders.
TIP: all our eco-adventure parks can be
visited on your own by renting a car (or
jeep) and heading to these parks at off-
peak hours. Rise early and catch sunrise
at Tulum, then work your way north
stopping at two or three parks.
Families: Like other Mxico
destinations, Cancn LOVES children and
families. Getting around is a snap (thanks
to our bus system), kids are welcome
everywhere, hotel childrens programs are
easy to nd, and our resorts are safe at
all hours. Imagine your clients swimming
with dolphins in the morning, climbing
Mayan pyramids in the afternoon, and
enjoying a dinner at Bubba Gumps. Its
all here!
Golfers: Cancn is on the verge of
becoming Mxicos new golf leader,
with ve courses in Cancn and eight
additional signature golf courses south
of Cancn. TIP: look for twilight rates
(usually after 2:00p.m., or inquire if your
hotel has special rates for area courses.
Groups: Corporate meetings are our
specialty. Our hotel partners have the
Caribbeans most extensive meeting
space. Our professionally staffed Cancn
Center offers over 70,900 square feet of
space. Over a dozen professional DMCs
are ready to handle the minutest details
to ensure a successful event (big or
small).
History Buffs: Remains from this
hemispheres most advanced society
surround visitors: the Mayas. In
addition there are nearby colonial cities,
including Valladolid, a 'Pueblo Mgico'
not far from Cancn, as well as 18th-
century haciendas, ex-convents, and
ne museums. Cancn is a top choice
for those looking to explore Mexicos
enthralling past. TIP: head west to
Valladolid, founded in the 16th century,
then from here head north some 30 kms
to incredible Ek-Balam.
Incentives: Just the mention of
Cancn can inspire incentive travelers
and organizers like no other destination.
Our over 140 hotels and resorts, dozens
of novel and unique outings, and special
blend of the best of Mexico and the
Caribbean make us an incentive leader.
Luxury Travelers: If youre thinking
that upscale travelers dont have a place
in Cancn think again! Our luxury-
brand resorts (Ritz Carlton, Starwood,
Hyatt, Fiesta Americana Grand, JW
Marriott, and others), limo service,
gourmet dining, designer shopping, and
personally escorted tours make Cancn
the perfect luxury escape. TIP: Cancn
has four AAA Five Diamond winners and
17 AAA Four Diamond recipients.
Partiers and Singles: Cancn has
Mexicos hippest clubs, discos and
bars. Settings range from intimate jazz
clubs, to salsa dance halls, to Latin

of cuisine choices, loads of activities, and
opportunities to interact with local culture

arise, our medical facilities are rst-rate,
including American and Spanish hospitals.
Shoppers: From designer boutiques
to open-air craft markets, Cancn has
something for every type of shopper.
A dozen modern shopping malls await
visitors, and competitive prices (thanks to
a strong U.S. dollar) allow you to shop for
bargains and come home with treasures.

Morelos host over 4,500 weddings each
year. Youll nd unique wedding venues,
professional wedding coordinators, and
plenty of activities to keep wedding guests
entertained.
J
ayson de Caires Taylors underwater museum of art is
Cancns new attraction, located at the Marine Park in
between Punta Cancn and Punta Nizuc.
The museum features over 400 sculptures strategically placed
at different depths on the sea bed, in order to create a habitat
to preserve this unique piece of the Caribbean Sea.

Each human size statue tells a different story and can be
seen easily by diving, snorkeling or from a glass bottom boat
previously arranged with any of the Cancn local marinas.
MUSA will promote conservation to the marine life, and will
highlight the potential of art as a way to increase environmental
awareness.

Travel to the Center of the Jungle
Cancn Sites
The largest archaeological site in Cancn is El Rey, located
within walking distance from the Iberostar (formerly Hilton)
Cancn (Blvd. Kukulcn, km. 19). El Rey, known to some as
the playground of the ancient Mayans, had its peak during the
post-Classic period (1250-1630 A.D. ). The site includes plazas
outlined by buildings and platforms that are connected by a 220-
yard path. It is named after a skeleton that was found on the site,
thought to be that of a king (el rey is Spanish for the king).
El Rey is open to tourists from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Entrance
fee is $50 pesos. Next to the Westin Lagunamar, on the highest
point in mostly at Cancn, lies Yamil Luum. The site consists
of two small temples that were likely used as watchtowers and
lighthouses between 500 and 700 years ago.
Part of the excitement of a visit to Cancn is its accessibility to
a world gone by. Remains of the ancient Maya civilization are
scattered throughout the Yucatan Peninsula. Some, like the temple
at the Westin Lagunamar are right in Cancn. Others, like Chichn
Itz and Ek-Balam are in the neighboring state of Yucatan, just a
couple hours drive from the Hotel Zone. All hold the secrets of a
fascinating culture, known the world over for its illustrious
achievements in art, architecture and science.
When touring, your clients will be on the most modern air-
conditioned motor coaches. Guides are experienced and can
speak a variety of languages. Cancns modern road network
makes car rental an attractive option for day outings. As your
clients move around, theyll nd that attractions are well managed,
easily accessed and geared toward creating lasting memories.
Remember, its easy to set up these outings in advance for your
clients saving them time while earning your agency additional
revenue!
You can do this by booking through your favorite tour operator,
talking with the hotel if you book directly, and by using the many
websites and resources we include in this Desk Reference.
Sites to the South and West of Cancn
TULUM (117 km or 90-minutes south of Cancn Airport)
The legendary Mayan site of Tulum (Mayan for walled city)
is one of the loveliest archaeological treasures in Mxico. It is
the only Mayan port city ever discovered, and one of the few to
still be occupied when the Spaniards arrived in the 16th century.
Overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea, Tulum is a gleaming
white-walled city that invites visitors to roam its small temples
and buildings. The site exhibits strong Toltec-Mayan inuences.
More than 60 well-preserved structures can be observed within
three massive walls that surround the site. An evening light and
sound show is now an added attraction.
19|
MUYIL was one of the earliest and longest-inhabited ancient
Mayan sites on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is
located approximately 15 km (9.3 mi) south of of Tulm and is
located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Sian Kaan
Biosphere Reserve. Tours to Muyil include walks along a lush trail
in the Maya forest to the Chunyaxch lagoon, a boat ride and the
opportunity to oat in pristine, turquoise waters through paths
carved by the Maya thousands of years ago. Tours operated
by Community Tours Sian Kaan allow you to use Maya guides
who live in the reserve and are the ancestors of the Maya who
rst inhabited this costal area. For more information visit www.
siankaantours.org/.
COB (43 km inland from Tulm; 2.5 hours south of the
Cancn Airport) Cob is becoming a popular attraction for visitors
wanting the feeling of discovering an important Mayan site still
shrouded by thick jungle. In fact, only 5 percent of the site has
been excavated. This once great city is now being extensively
studied for the rst time. Built between two lakes during the
Classic Period (300-900 A.D.), Cob was at one time a very large
city with nearly 50,000 inhabitants and extended over 80 square
km. The main pyramid, Nohuch Mul (large hill), is 42 meters
tall (138 feet) and is the tallest in the Yucatn Peninsula. The
pyramid known as the Iglesia (Church), is the second highest.
Much of the site is still unearthed, giving visitors an Indiana
Jones type experience.
CHICHN ITZ is one of the largest and most fascinating
sites in Mexico. It is actually two cities: one that was ruled by
the Maya during the 6th to the 10th century; the other a Toltec-
Mayan city that emerged around the year 1000 A.D. Tell clients
this is not to be missed, and plan to spend at least an entire day
here.
KOHUNLICH is located about 65 km west of Chetumal on
Hwy 186. The road approaches the site from the north and leads
into an enormous central plaza ringed by pyramids and temple
platforms. Settled in 200 B.C., it contains almost 200 mounds
that remain largely unexcavated. The site is best known for its
Temple of the Masks, an Early Classic pyramid whose central
stairway is anked by huge humanized stucco masks. Most
travelers who currently visit the site arrive on cruise ships stopping
in Mahahual/ Costa Maya. There is one hotel near the site, the
Explorean Kohunlich operated by Fiesta Americana Hotels.
EK BALAM is located 51 km northeast of Chichn Itz
and 30 km north of Valladolid, a beautiful Spanish colonial town
that should be combined with any visit to this amazing Maya
archaeological site. Ek Balam was at its height from A.D. 770
to 840, contains 45 structures and provides a rich resource of
information for understanding northern Classic cities.

hat sets the gastronomic offerings of this region
apart is an important culinary movement, with
chefs from all over the world in charge of the
kitchens of hotels and restaurants, resulting in a mosaic of
culinary wealth where food is understood in a different way.
The list of specialties is innite: from Mexican fare with all its
regional varieties to the most rened international cuisine.
There are authentic, innovative, elegant and casual restaurants.
By experimenting with new techniques, using new ingredients
and fusing culinary styles, the chefs achieve dishes that are
a delight for all the senses. It is no surprise that many of the
destinations restaurants are listed among the best in specialized
travel magazines and receive awards from the Michelin guide and
AAA, among other important associations.
The H Award and Crystal Certicate, among others, are a clear
example of the high standards of quality and hygiene offered by
Cancn's restaurants.
Excellence is always a common denominator in the destinations
culinary experience. The beautiful settings are part of the
enjoyment of a stay here: a thatched roof palapa by the sea or
views of sunsets on the beautiful lagoon, both accompanied by
the sound of violins, pianos, saxophones, mariachis and jaraneros.
The fun continues with the nightlife for which Cancn is famous:
discotheques, bars and rst-class shows, accompanied by different
styles and trends in live music played every night, are open seven
days a week.
Once again Cancn breaks the rule of traditional gastronomy,
showing that this is a place where the travelers palate can
experience delicious avors and learn about the subtleties of food,
set against the background of its incomparable natural beauty.
With over 200 restaurant choices, Cancn offers unparalleled
variety. Dining locations tend to be in one of three areas:
Hotel Restaurants: From simple poolside snacks to gourmet
international cuisine, our over 140 hotels host some of our nest
restaurants.
Cancn Island: Dining is concentrated around our many
shopping malls and offers a diverse array of choices.
Cancn City: From delicious tacos to seafood, the regional
Maya cuisine, this area is an attractive alternative.
Some eighty of our over 200 restaurants are considered tourist
class establishments and offer such amenities as live music,
kids play areas, highchairs, handicapped facilities, on-site parking
and even Braille menus.
Cancns dining scene may factor into whether your clients
choose an EP or an all-inclusive (AI)resort. Youll also nd plenty
of dining variety at our more than 60 AI properties, ranging from
Mexican, to Italian, to Asian to steaks.
However, for those who want to fully savor Cancns dining scene,
the EP or MAP option may be more attractive. This allows for new
dining experiences throughout the day, and should your clients
be away from their resort (on one of our popular day tours), they
wont be paying for food and beverage thats not being consumed.
A middle-of-the-road option could be to suggest your clients take
a meal plan at their EP hotel. This can provide meal coverage
and affordability, while at the same time allowing your clients
to dine out during a portion of their stay. Commissionable meal
plans are currently offered at dozens of our EP resorts.
Ready to recommend some dining options to your clients? This
is a great way to promote your Cancn expertise.
Buen Provecho!

ancn boasts one of the most
enticing, challenging and scenic
golf offerings in the Americas.
Course designers include Jack Nicklaus,
Greg Norman, P.B. Dye, Robert Trent
Jones II, Nick Price, Tom Fazio, Tom
Weiskopf and Robert von Hagge.
Quintana Roo State has attracted
the attention of the PGA Tour. The
Mayakob Golf Classic (held each
February) is the only PGA-sanctioned
tournament played outside the US or
Canada. Meanwhile, our newest course
for 2012 is the Cancn Country Club.
With 18 holes, TPC was designed by
Nick Price, with another planned course
to be designed by Tom Fazio. Both
courses have been and will continue
to be developed to the standards of
the PGA Tour's TPC Network, bringing
added prestige and notoriety to the
region.
As of 2012 there are 15 operating
courses in the greater Cancn area.
Cancn guests can easily access four
courses within the Cancn hotel zone.
Just north of the hotel zone is the
Playa Mujeres course, while just south
of the airport are the Moon Palace and
Cancn Country Club (see adjacent
map for locations). Guests choosing
to stay in Puerto Morelos have an
assortment of local links (located to
the south), plus, of course, the Cancn
hotel zone courses.

Courses are full-service venues, each
with a professional pro shop, well-
maintained golf carts, driving range,
putting green, Bermuda fairways and
greens, caddies, top quality equipment
rentals, restaurants, and beverage
cart. All of our courses are open to
the public (some require advance
arrangements for access). Some offer
lower rates for guests of certain hotels,
while others have special twilight
rates for play after 2:00 p.m. In some
cases the green fee will be all-inclusive,
with snacks and beverages.

his 8-km-long (5 miles) by one-half-km-
wide (.3 miles) wisp of an island sits just 6
km off the coast to the northeast of Cancn.
For those wanting a break from the glitz of Cancn,
Isla Mujeres is a refreshing throwback to the days
before Cancn even existed. The pace is relaxed
and unpretentious, and the setting is pure magic.
Plan on a full day to tour and enjoy the island.
The island (population 15,000) seems to defy
change, even though its swanky neighbor (Cancn)
has spurred the development of some visitor
attractions that have spruced up the islands very
bohemian ambiance. In 2008 a number of new
hotels opened (Isla Mujeres Palace, Casa Sirena).
Most of Islas residents live from diving and shing.
They make very hospitable hosts for both day-
trippers and overnight guests.

his little-known barrier island rests off the
Yucatns northern coast. It is about three
times larger than Isla Mujeres. Holbox(hole-
Bowsh is similar to Isla Mujeres of 25 years ago.
The water is clear and shallow several hundred yards
offshore, ideal for wading and collecting the abundant
seashells. Holbox days can be spent snorkeling,
shing, and eating fresh lobster and seafood at small
beachfront palapa-roofed restaurants. From August
to September, the beaches are the spawning ground
of green sea turtles. Of special note is the areas
unique whale shark population, viewable up close
during summer months. Local shermen will take
people out to sh or snorkel, to see the amingo

The tourist ferry dock near the Islands northern
tip is where visitors disembark to enter the islands
main settlement (measuring a mere four blocks by
six blocks). The town is home to simple shops, a
few restaurants, some funky bars, an occasional
brightly painted clapboard house, and the Plaza
Municipal. Mopeds, golf carts, bicycles and taxis
can be easily rented upon arrival.
South of town the islands only road skirts the
western coast past mangrove lagoons, an air strip,
stunning beaches and relaxed seaside restaurants
before looping northbound. The trip to the islands
southern tip takes about 20 minutes. The islands
eastern shore is rugged, rocky, and mostly
undeveloped.
Getting Here: By ferry, three locations in the Hotel
Zone or Puerto Jurez, a travel time of 15 to 20
minutes.

or take them east around Cabo Catoche to a rarely
visited Mayan ruin at Ecab. Visitors can reach Holbox
via the Cancn-Mrida toll way. Next they travel
north on the road to the village of Chiquill, then by
20-minute ferry or boat ride. Boats depart daily, and
the auto ferry is daily as well. The tour operators
Alltournative and Eco Colors can arrange escorted
tours.
Getting Here: From Cancn, take the road to

reefs, islands and sandbanks that make
up the continental shelf of the Mexican
Caribbean. Declared a National Wildlife Reserve
in 1961, this island is situated just 41 km/25 mi
north of Cancn, 30 kms north of Isla Mujeres,
and it's just 8.5 kms (about 5 miles) long. Only a
few tour operators are authorized to take tourists
for daytime visits. Besides its unparalleled beauty,
secluded sandy white beaches and lush palm
trees, the island boasts more than a hundred and

numerous and easy to observe are the frigate, the
brown pelican and the double-crested cormorant.

ozumel, the largest island in the Mexican
Caribbean, is located just off Playa del Carmen
south of Cancn. The island measures 48
kms/30 miles long and 16 kms/10 miles wide and
sits just 19 kms from Playa del Carmen on Mexicos
mainland. A 3,000-foot-deep channel separates the
two. The areas diving and snorkeling are legendary.
Following a 1959 visit and 1961 documentary by
Jacques Cousteau, Cozumel earned a worldwide
following of divers who ranked it one of the top ve
scuba diving and snorkeling sites on the planet. The
islands surrounding sea is teeming with undersea
life, colorful reefs, and the slumbering hulls of Spanish
galleons.
study the ecosystem of the island. It also supports
supervised eco-tourism and regulated commercial
shing. Only a few tour companies have permission
to bring guests to the island and only 200 visitors
are allowed daily. These tours sail from Isla Mujeres
or Cancn. Depending on the weather and the type
of boat, the trip should take one to two hours. If
you plan to visit the island in your own vessel, you
are required to apply for permission rst, which can
be arranged at the park ofces in Isla Mujeres or
Cancn. For more information on tours, see http://
www.islacontoy.org/tour_operator.htm.
Getting Here: Access is by sea from Cancn,
Puerto Jurez, Isla Mujeres. Travel time of one to
two hours.
For non-divers, the island has something for
everyone (in fact, only 30 percent of visitors are
divers). Sightseeing includes archaeological sites,
eco-adventure parks, beach clubs, a deserted eastern
shore, museums, and the pleasant city of San Miguel
(pop. 80,000). The town is an eclectic mix of cafs,
restaurants, and boutiques. The charms of island life
are infused with a pronounced contemporary Mayan
culture.
Getting Here: By air to CZM International Airport,
or from Cancn, Mxico City, many U.S. and Canadian
cities, or via ferry from Playa del Carmen.
