This was a great way to travel is Isla Mujeres. We took the R1 (public bus) to the Puerto Juarez terminal. There are ferry departures closer to the Hotel Zone but we chose Puerto Juarez because departures are every 30 minutes and as a bonus its about half the cost of the other ferry departure points.

We took this ferry from Playa Tortugas to Isla Mujeres in the morning, and then back again in the afternoon. It was very quick, efficient, and on time. Easy and comfortable. Very clean. Staff was helpful. Recommended.
