PRIVATE BOATS

If the water taxi schedule doesn't fit yours, or you prefer independence, you can hire a private boat to pick you up at the time that suits you best. A one-way trip from Boca starts at around $2000 MXN, but the final price depends on the location, time and number of passengers.  Contact us for more details.
