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

Nice place for half a day trip. Wasn't that amusing as i expected, water was quite dirty so didn't see much whilst snorkling. however, it is nice to see families just cross over with their kids for a picnic!

We ate at the Palao restaurant on the island, the food was great. The views were beautiful from the boat and from the Island. My daughter and my niece had fun snorkeling. They had a Polynesian dancer show at the restaurant which was interesting to see. So those 3 stars are for that. The boat is dirty for American standard,... More
