Signed up for the full tour. About $25.00 for pick up at hotel, boat tour, lunch on beach, open bar, choice of recreation such as kayak, horse back riding, banana boat and return to hotel. Nice inexpensive day.

Our guide, Antonio, was very young but knew his way around horses. We had a great ride through coconut plantation and on the beach. Our horses were calm and easy to ride and very responsive to our commands and Antonio's whistles. He had different whistles for every command it seemed.

I am surprised to read bad reviews of this place. I went with my father in law, his wife, my husband and 3 kids, ages 17, 2 and 5 months. We took the a little boat, cost 30 pesos each then a taxi to the beach. We stayed at a restaurant for the entire day eating and drinking soda and... More

Well I came here early in the morning and to be honest it seemed like a very scary place. Transportation to the island was okay but after you are on the island you really gave to watch out for the people. The tour takes you in a tractor to the back of the island were you will find restaurants that... More

Stone Island is hands down the dirtiest beach I've ever been to (and I've been to Coney Island many, many times). We were sold a tour off of the cruise ship and were told it would be 30 minutes door-to-beach. Two hours, a rickshaw to a boat (on which we waited for over an hour) we were taken on a... More

Mazatlan has much better places to offer. The place is poorly maintained, dirty and messy. The activities offered can be enjoyed elsewhere and the place do offer any exclusivity...

what a fun way to spend a day. Stone Island is accessible by taking the Sabalo Centro bus down towards the lighthouse. Get off at the boatyard and walk down to get your ferry tickets to Stone Island. It takes about 5 minutes to get to the Island..which isn't an island at all but a penninsula. There are so many... More
