How to get from Tulum to Isla Mujeres.
As we said before, Tulum is 3 hours away from Isla Mujeres, this is because there is no direct ferry from one city to another, it is necessary to first go to Cancún so you can cross to the island. There are two options to move, which are you going to choose will depend on what you want and need.
Moving by car.
Throughout Riviera Maya, you will find several car rentals that will fit almost any need and budget, we recommend you to book in advance to get the best prices. To rent a car is a good option if what you want is to travel at your own pace if you are traveling with kids or family and also if you are planning to cross to the island with the car, which is totally possible.
To get to Cancún by car first you must go to Cancun-Tulum Highway, this a straight road so you don’t have to worry about deviations, just notice that you will pass three bridges: one in Playa del Carmen, another in Puerto Morelos and the last one in Moon Palace Hotel, once you pass the airport you will be in Cancun.
If you are planning to cross with the car you have to go to the Ultramar Cargo Ferry Station in Punta Sam by driving trough the whole Bonampak Av and go straight to where Villas del Palmar Hotel is. The ferry station will be next to this hotel. The price will be for no more than 300 Mexican pesos for crossing a familiar car including just the driver, every other person that is coming with you will have to pay their own ticket for no more than 150 Mexican pesos. The second option, if you don’t mind leaving the car in Cancún, is going to the Ultramar Ferry Station in Puerto Juarez to which you can arrive also by driving through Bonampak Av until you are about to pass down a bridge before you do that, you will have to turn to the right, to Puerto Juarez Av and drive for 5 minutes until you see the station. You do not have to worry about the car because the station has its own parking lot. Here the prices go from 160 to 300 Mexican pesos.
Another way to move to Isla Mujeres is to take a bus at the ADO Terminal located in Tulum Av downtown Tulum, here a one-way ticket costs about 190 Mexican pesos each person. This is the best option for you if you and the ones who are coming with you do not feel like driving. The trip will last about 2 hours until you get to the ADO terminal Downtown Cancun. Once you get off the bus, outside the terminal you will be able to take a taxi to Puerto Juarez for not more than 100 Mexican pesos.
