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

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
