Beautiful island, full of little crabs everywhere,a lot of flowers and fish. Peaceful beach, if you prefer to be alone or with less people this Island is going to fit you.

Our trip to the Isla La Roqueta was for my first scuba experience ever. Water wasn't too clear and we didn't see many fish. The day was sunny so am not sure why the water wasn't the beautiful aqua clear tropical feel I had wanted.

The glass bottom boat by itself is not Worth it. If you use it to goto the isla La Roqueta and spend the day there, it is probably justified. The price is not what is advertised because there are offerings on the boat that require you to pay tips: for exemple, one yongster will dive off a low cliff and... More

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
