The island of Contoy has been a protected area since 1961 and is Mexico’s best kept secret found off the coast of Cancun. The island lies in the transition zone between the warm, clear waters of the Caribbean Sea and the cold, deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
If you’re planning a trip to Cancun, and looking to get away from the crowds for a day, Contoy Island is for you. Boats arrive at the shallow coastline where the waters are calm and perfect for swimming. Contoy Island is a place where you can just close your eyes, and the only thing you’ll hear is the sound of the birds. This tropical oasis boasts pristine beaches, dense vegetation and a rich biodiversity.
Here, all your worries will have been left behind.
