You are better off taking the ferry. The Aquaworld trip promised a nice ride back and forth, lunch on their private beach, snorkling, and a trip into town. Well it was a BEER cruise, not fit for families, and the loud music over a crappy loudspeaker system starts promptly. Their private beach wasn't private-it was shared by other boats coming in. Snorkling consisted of being pushed out of the back of a boat and trying not to get dragged away by the current. It was VAMOS VAMOS VAMOS to get off the boat, and then VAMOS VAMOS VAMOS to get back in. Ridiculous. Our 10 and 8 year olds almost drowned. They continued to play dirty rap music at the highest volume on the way to the center of Isla Mujeres, where we quickly hoofed it to the less touristy streets. The way back to Cancun was filled with more booze, the loudest music (at least they changed it to a pop track), and the guides dressing up as rastafarians. Basically these people lost any sense of pride a long time ago, and their common sense along with it.
