Description

El Cruce or Cruce Cancún to Isla Mujeres, is one of the World’s Top 100 Open Water Swims and the World’s Top 100 Island Swims.

It is a beautifully two-race event from Cancún to Isla Mujeres in Quintana Roo in southern Mexico. Swimmers can choose between a 3.8 km and 10 km ocean course in crystal-clear water tropical waters that can occasionally become rough and tidal.

The race is traditionally held at the end of May and is considered to be one of the most beautiful inter-island ocean competitions and marathon swims in the world. Sometimes called the Complete Crossing 10K Open Water Cancun to Isla Mujeres.
