Welcome to one of the most beautiful islands of the mexican caribbean and very close to Cancun. Contoy Island is located northeast of the Yucatan Peninsula, on one side we have the Gulf of Mexico and on other the Caribbean Sea.
The mixture of the cold waters of the Gulf and the warm waters of the Caribbean, helps the production of plankton that attracts large numbers of Sea Birds. Therefore, it has become the natural refuge of 151 species of birds. Contoy Island is a protected area, since turtles come to nest on its beaches. Contoy Island is a paradise very near to Cancun Quintana Roo, and its one of the many ecological tours that you can find in Cancun, but its certainly the most beautiful and preserved paradise.
As a natural reserve protected area, tourism is limited to 200 visitors a day, so only very few lucky ones have the opportunity to admire the beauty of the beautiful beaches of Contoy Island, and be amazed by the diversity of Birds that live in the island. If you go to Cancun or Isla Mujeres you can visit Contoy Island, its less than an hour by boat, you must book 3 days in advance and you can leave in the morning and return by the end of the afternoon.
Contoy Island is for demanding Tourism that want a different option away from crowds.
