Excursion Help – Iberostar Paraiso to Isla Mujeres?

First trip to the area in April and staying at IPB. Cast includes husband, myself and dear daughters 12 and 14. We want to visit Isla Mujeres, rent a golf cart and explore Laura’s (MapChick) golf cart tour of the island. What is the best way to get to there? I priced private transfer/taxi but that seems very expensive. We would rather burn that cash on a great meal at an Isla eatery. I was considering catching the colectivo to Cancun and than a taxi to the dock. What would be the costs in $$ and time? How late does the colectivo run back south towards Playa? Alternately, I can reserve a car for a great rate from Alamo in Playa for the week. We plan to drive to Tulum and Akumel Bay and explore areas south later in the week. Should we just drive to Gran Puerto Cancun on our own? Is their public parking to find easily near the dock? Just how terrible is the driving in downtown Cancun? Any worse than driving in any big city here is New England? I commute daily on CT interstates during rush hour , so I am a defensive driver to say the least! Also, any favorite spots on Isla we should not miss assuming we get there? Thanks in advance for your help.
