There is no sense in paying for the boat ride over to Roqueta Island and being stuck there until your boat leaves when it is exactly like the Old City beach where you depart. There is absolutely nothing unique about it.

We went over to the island twice during our stay in Acapulco. The fee is 50 pesos round trip straight to the island and 85 pesos if you get the tour to see the Statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe through the glass bottom boat. There are so few foreign tourists here that nothing is in English. There are several... More

We took a glass bottom boat to the Private island. We got to see fish and a statue in the bottom of the ocean. The island offer little shops and a restaurant. The shopping was more expensive.. The island also had snooba and snorkeling and a banana boat. Do not by the tickets for these on the boat. The ticket... More

If you are adventurous then you will love Isla La Roqueta. In the old part of Acapulco at Caleta you can take a boat over to the island. There are venders there that will sell you a ticket to go and come back. Its about a twenty minute boat ride over. There are plenty of options once your there. If... More

The beach is very rocky. bring snorkel gear to have the most fun. Water is refreshingly fantastic. People are genuinely kind and food is delightful.

I only squeaked in about 30 minutes of snorkeling while I was there, and after talking to the restaurant staff, I found out just how much I had missed. The glass bottom boat ride was fun, but next time I'll find another option to get to the island (kayak, preferably) and hike some of the trails and explore the island... More

Just go to the Malecon and you will see the boats that take you to the island. It was 100 pesos per person. I was the only gringo and everything was in Spanish, which was fine, especially since my fiancee is Mexican. The guide was funny and his sidekick dove for sea urchins and let us all hold one. he...

A great place to spend an afternoon, the ride out on a glass bottom boat was great. You can walk out in the water for quite a ways and if inclined to you can snorkle. Plenty of food and drinks available
