My wife and I have cruised through Mazatlan three times. Two of the occasions we visited stone island. Getting there is easy and does not require a taxi. Just go out to the street turn left and walk about a half mile to a water taxi stand. The very inexpensive taxi will take you across the channel to stone island.... More

Loved the excursion to Stone Island! Fun boat tour, horseback riding and banana boat ride. My tour guide took care to translate for me and make sure I knew what I needed to know! Lunch was excellent and the drinks were plentiful!

You have to go here. Do it by tour or do it on your own. Take a taxi to the harbor, buy a round trip ticket ($1.25) on the little ferry boat. Get a waiting taxi to the beach and have a unbelievable day. UNBELIEVABLE. Went to Letty's this last time. Spent the whole day on a lounge with fresh... More

We purchased an excursion through Playa Sur. Polo, our guide, made sure we were well take care of the entire day. He provided information in both English and Spanish. We were disappointed with a couple of things (no snorkeling and seals), but we understood that the jelly fish were an issue with the snorkeling and the seals had migrated out... More

3 of us took the boat trip to Stone Island for the day. It was indeed fun and the food was great. We chose to ride the horses which is only a 10-15 minute ride on the smallest horses I have ever seen in my life. Still it was fun to ride on the beach. The other activity we did... More

I love finding star fish just off the beach. This is just such a wonderful spot for playing and sunning and horseback riding. We just could have spent several more hours enjoying this beach. The boat ride there was quite fun and interesting also.

Mildly interesting day. Not sure which tour I booked through, as the hotel concierge booked it. there seem to be 3 or 4 different tours. Starts with a 40 min ferry ride, which was 30 min too long. They try to make it interesting by taking you to see some caves and rocks, but it isn't much to see, and... More

There is nothing here that you cannot see and do other places in Mazatlan. You are lucky if you are picked up on time by King David, and then there is another 40 minutes of bus riding picking up the other passengers at other resorts. You do not need the silly boat "tour" which is actually just a little loop... More

Booked through king David, for the afternoon tour the next day. We were outside the hotel 15 minutes early to be prepared and ahead of schedule. Waited for an hour and the tour vehicle never came like we were promised. Called the tour company and they just told us no afternoon tour today. So what about our money? Never got... More

This place is great for an easy excursion. It's also one of the best places if you want to snorkel, as the water is pretty calm. The places lining the beach have great service and food. My only complaint is the stream of "vendors" trying to sell you something while you are trying to relax on the beach.
