Whether you want to cruise the picturesque Riviera Maya coastline or cruise to Isla Mujeres and tie up at the Playa Norte, Cancún is one of the most popular Caribbean hotspots for winter charters. For multi-day charters, Holbox and Cozumel are considered some of the most picturesque areas for diving and exploring by boat and should not be missed.
Below is a sample 7-day yachting itinerary in Riviera Maya. Enjoy.
Embark on your yacht in Cancún and enjoy the short 30- minute cruise to Isla Mujeres. Enjoy lunch at Marbella for the best seafood on the island. Afterwards make sure to visit the MUSA where you can snorkel around the underwater museum. At night, take a walk through town where you will be able to go shopping and enjoy a delicious dinner.
By the time you wake up, you'll have breakfast ready and you'll be half way to Holbox. If you travel here between June and September, there's a good chance you'll be able to swim with Whale Sharks. For today, make sure to have lunch at Roots for the best lobster pizza, and then take a trip to Isla Passion to view the pink flamingos.
Take an early morning kayak trip through the mangrove forests and then finish off with a photo opp at the Instagram-famous hammocks of Holbox in the seas. Heads to Raíces for one of the best seafood lunches in town, and have a guide take you on a cenotes snorkel dive to finish the afternoon.
Depart from Holbox early morning for a beautiful 3-hr cruise through crystal clear waters to Cancún. Have breakfast aboard while cruising, and as soon as you arrive into Cancún, make sure to have the crew book you a trip to the spa at Nizuc or the Ritz Carlton Hotel. For dinner, try haute cuisine at Rosa Negra and for drinks, check out H Roof Nightclub.
Depart for Cozumel early morning and drop anchor in El Cielo natural reserve. There you can take the tender to shore and snorkel or scuba dive and explore the natural reef. Have a ceviche lunch at the sand bar restaurant and head onshore to hike the trails. Head into town for dinner and eat at Guido's for a modern Italian fusion meal.
Book an ATV or SUV tour of the island and end your tour in the northern part of the island and check out Passion Island. For those that wind surf or kite surf, you'll find some of the best winds here. Once back at the boat, the captain will take you near town to drop anchor and have a lovely dinner onboard with the Cozumel town as your back drop.
