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

It was such an adventure to take a little boat to this low-key part of Mazatlan. We spent the day under a palap and ate good seafood and good prices. The ocean waves are calm here so it was excellent for children. A great, relaxing way to spend a day.

The resort we were staying at recommended this tour through King David Tours saying there was a small town to visit and shop in as well. However, I have to agree with one of the other reviews I just read in that the highlight of the tour was the boat ride over. We were the ONLY four English speaking people... More

Quiet and beautiful. Take a water taxi across the harbor, walk across the street, and it's like time stands still. There are miles of beach where you can walk and swim. You can enjoy a elaxing hammock, a sand vollyball game, or rent ATV's for a thrilling ride down the beach. Nice place to visit for a day.
