Planning a day trip to Isla need help from the experts

H has never been, last time I was there was about 15 years ago. Best way to get there still by Ferry out of Playa? And when we do get there, rec's for a golf cart rental place for a full day? Also, is Bujos (sp??) still there? I can't recall, how long is the ferry trip? Thanks in advance all:)

Ferry to Isla Mujeres is from Cancun. Playa ferry goes to Cozumel. There are golf cart rentals everywhere, and they all charge about the same price. (Can't remember what it is though, sorry)

In December we booked and paid online. http://www.islamujeresgolfcartrentals...
Turned out it was Ciro's. Great service. No problems.
Just checked credit card bill. Billed us as quoted.
When we returned cart. The Ciro's guys took us back to our hotel.
Bet they would deliver you to ferry as well.
Happy planning!

It's not necessary to reserve a golf cart in advance.

we rented a golf cart for 50.00 a day when there last summer......Cardenas rental---good people! It's a great way to get
around..Taxi's also were very cheap...there is a large grocery when you head south and get hast the airport and
past the ball diamond.
Also a fun little bar that serves daily food specials---the Soggy Peso! We made other stops that were fun, just can't
remember all the names!

headin' south again soon!

But wahooligan you have to leave your credit card with a real car ;) Not the actual card but you know, they swipe it.
The drivers license thing is no big deal, they give it back when you return the cart, it's their only collateral you'll return the cart. We've been renting carts forever, you always get your license back. No worries!

Islamujeresgolfcartrentals won't do a one day reservation. They work on commission, they aren't an actual golf cart shop.

I don't leave my DL to rent a real car anywhere


Even the golf cart rentals in Akumal often request your DL

Thus I bring an old one or laminated copy

I bring an old one too.

About 7? years ago El Sol cart rentals on Isla would allow us to leave a $20.00 caash deposit instead of our license so you might want to check with them.
