The UltraMar Ferry leaves Cancun, Puerto Juarez every 30 minutes from 5am - Midnight. It costs about $7 USD each way. Unless you've purchased your ferry ticket with your shuttle ride, you can purhcase a ticket at the dock.
Go visit Polo at his restaurant, Mango Cafe. Great for every meal - breakfast (best coffee on the island), lunch, and dinner! Expect to spend around $85 pesos per meal.
(YOU MUST GO TO SOGGY PESO IF YOU GO TO ISLA)
This is hands down one of our favorite bars and the perfect spot for you to start your island crawl. The margaritas are 100% booze so don't have more than one, if you have any at all. They only have one food option per day and the cheeseburgers are the bomb, but the Sunday slow cooked ribs/chicken are their hot sellers.
We have met so many awesome people here and love the bartender, Gustavo. Be sure to say hello and look for the Chicago flag hat on the ceiling.
After many years working the bar at Soggy Peso, Freddy's opened up his own spot at the end of Hidalgo (main strip). He made it a Green Bay Packers bar in honor of his loyal cheese-head regulars.
This is our favorite spot on the island for a quick, inexpensive bite to eat. Pitas for around $5 USD that are delicous and not too filling. It's a little tricky to find, so keep your eyes open. The owner, Ricardo, is a great chef who owned a restaurant in New York.
Come to the local market downtown for some fresh pressed juice. Select from the grab-n-go or create your own from orange, beets, watermelon, and more!
Andy's a big fan of the chaya/orange juice, his hangover cure!
Olivia's is the best dinner restaurant on the island. Come here for a taste of Mediterranean. They are very busy so please pop in and make a reservation.
Go see our friend Lory for some delicious cocktails, she's Isla's finest mixologist. They are known for their Fish & Chips and open late night for drinks.
We love Zama Beach Club. They have a private beach on the south end of the island so it's going to be a calmer setting. Relax on a day bed, swim in the infinity pool, get a massage on the beach, and grab some food or drinks at the bar.
Punta Sur, is the highest elevation in Yucatan Peninsula. It is surrounded by landscapes of cliffs and endless ocean views, an ancient Mayan temple and a Sculpture garden.

IRON ABS GYM
This is my favorite gym. It's pretty much a prison gym with rusted weights and loud music. Don't wear anything white or anything that you want to keep clean. Prepare to sweat heavily... and get some IRON ABS!
Richart spent 7 years building a floating island upon 150,000 plastic bottles. He gives tours for $5 USD donation with a taste of solar cooked cake!
This is my (Andy) favorite spot to watch the sunrise. If you stay up the night before or set your alarm, it's well worth the trip. Mango Cafe opens up right after the sunrise. : )
Curtis & Ashley have a great spot for freezing cold beers and delicious margaritas. It's a laid back Bed & Breakfast spot with an awesome background story: http://luxebeatmag.com/isla-mujeres-romantic-retreat-villa-la-bella/
Beachin' Burrito is new to the island but the owner Ryan Rickman is not. He performs great live music and the burritos are made for curing hangovers.
This place is on the main strip and has great t-shirts, prints, & artwork.
