Loved it!

We had fun horseback riding and riding the banana boat too bad we couldn't kayak as we would have to go out on our own, way too scary.

They sell this as an island, which is misleading. But it is a fun day with fun activities. The beer is cooled with ice cubes in your glass, so a bit odd. The food was good.

Reading other recent reviews, it seems that no one reads anything before they go anywhere. It is COMPLETLY UNNECCESSARY TO BOOK A TOUR. you ask a taxi or pulmonia for "embarcadero por la Isla". you buy a ticket there with locals for about $2 roundtrip.(10 MINUTES AWAY) It is a wonderful, quiet place, with about 10 miles of beaches, and...

i used to go to the stone island when i was a kid , i was able to return after several years i seems it has lost all of the magic i don't recommend this trip i believe there is many other better attractions in Mazatlan. and its not an island by the way.

Don't even bother with this place. It is horrible and not portrayed accurately on the brochures. They advertise donkey rides.....it is actually tractors pulling carts of visitors on a very dusty road, while not only dust blows up on you but the exhaust from the tractor. The food is not good, either. Lastly, it was horrible riding around the island... More

The boat ride to and from Stone Island is slow and longer than expected, about 45 minutes so keep that in mind if you get sea sick (as others did in the boat). We only paid $40 for a family of four as we chose this as our gift for attending a timshare presentation at out hotel. I am glad... More

My family and I just got back from a cruise to the Mexican Riviera. This was my husband and my 2nd trip to these ports. We have found that both times we were at Mazatlan, we walked down the port and took a $2.00 round trip ride on the Water Taxi to Stone Island. We then walked along the beach... More

Let's start with this. We booked this separately from our Carnival Cruise line, and obviously, it was necessary because this would not be associated with Carnival. Upon arrival to the island, we were inundated by multiple vendors. The company we chose took us via tractor (a real tractor) and trailer to the restaurant. The host was very kind and informative,...

we liked the horseback riding and the banana boat ride. Awesome! The boat crews were informative in giving us a history on our way to the island. The people were kind and no one harassed us in buying their stuff. They asked and if you declined they just walked away and said "gracias".

We booked a catamaran from a Marina to Stone Island and then had options of horseback riding, kayaking, a wagon ride, or a banana boat. The catamaran there was the best part! The horseback ride was not what we were hoping for, with no view and a guide who spoke minimal English placing people on horses who then began the... More
