When we were there the water was so clear we could hunt many fish of various colour. I used a little blow up float and went everywhere close to shore and explored and saw so much!!!!

I discovered Isla la Roqueta by buying a ticket on a PALAO excursion. A great intro for Isla la Roqueta and worth the price - 150 pesos + 35 pesos the hotel that sold me the tickets charged on top. I will write a separate review for Palao. After I discovered la Roqueta, I went back 9 times. Instead of... More

Isla la Roqueta, is a very relaxing place to spend the day. Watch the seashell salesmen float by on their small rafts, and take in snorkeling.

We've been going to Acapulco for 28 years in a row, thios Feb 2 will be 29. Every year I rent a cruiser and take friends from Acapulco, most have never been out on the ocean, and go to the cliff divers. After we stop at Isla La Roqueta and have dinner. GREAT food,service and view....a MUST go!

I just love going here! I've been here three times, maybe more! Great relaxing and interesting place to spend the day! Easy swimming and snorkeling is the best here.

the boat to get there is an old tub but the commentary is fun and the time on Roqueta Island is fun with live Aztec dancers and a light buffet and complimentary bar. (no beer)

you can hike up this hill and if you ask nicely the military guys at the top will let you and you can climb to the top of the lighthouse. lots of kids will try to guide you but it is not necessary unless you just feel more comfortable. our guide was nice and didn't charge too much.

To get to the in inhabited island you take a short glass bottom boat ride which is the most interesting part of the trip. A no frills tour for sure without a restroom. I do not recommend this tour unless your into roughing it. Pretty view though
