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.

Boat ride was very short, nothing special. We went horse back riding on the beach. We felt bad for the horses because no one gave them water. The lunch left something to be desired. The banana boat ride was very short and my 16 year old niece fell off and they didn't go back to pick her up, she had... More

All the activities they offered are available in Mazatlan, it wasn't anything special. It was worth a try but I wasn't impressed by it, though it was interesting to see the little island and small town.

One thing no one tells you is there are lockers you have to rent to stash your stuff while you're doing activity. Banana boat ride - OMG. I had lathered up good with sunscreen which meant I was slippery on the ride. I was in front and will never do that again. I got so much sea water in my... More

My wife and I traveled here by bus. The whole trip turned out to be a really surreal adventure because the tourist season had just ended by the time we went to Stone Island and there was hardly anyone on the island. It was very fun but just felt really strange because we almost had the place to ourselves. Very... More

The relaxing beach, wonderful food and the intoxicating drinks were wonderful. It was a gorgeous peaceful warm day. We got a kick out of the vendors selling there wares on the beach where... More
