    We have been going here for over 20 years. It is getting more and more developed, but we still love it. Great place to visit. Easy to get to from Cancun.  more »

    We went to island women. How to get? If salis of playa del carmen, you got that take a combi to cancun. Combis go to Cancun from the same place that go to tulum. And akumal. Get 40 p and operates 24 hours a day. A difference to the other q function up to 12 o'clock. . On 15th Avenue between the 2 and 4. When you arrive in Cancun left you in a supermarket called comercial mexicana. That is very close to the terminal of cancun. Hence you have take another combi medium hair. That leaves $10. And brings you to puerto Juarez. And the combi has to say PUERTO JUAREZ. They are red. and it takes to pass. When you get to the port. There is a single line of ferries it is called overseas and thus get passage. IDA out 168. And if you buy it round out 300 p. Very expensive. To return to the beach, you got that go to the same place where I leave the combi and out very often. We went during the day. And we were on the beach in the Center. It was quite crowded... If you were going more to the Center stepped Beach was most beautiful. But much all inclusive. And bad the beach is that it is close to the port. Long boat. Ferry. It boat all the time. Tourism to the stick. A shame to so many people because it seems very cute island. much tourism... is more expensive that cancun shops in the Centre to buy gifts are expensive. you want to buy in cancun or playa which is cheaper.
