Booked a tour on a party barge (concierge told us it was a sailboat) that took us to the island ... which isn't really an island. It's a 10 minute boat ride to the penninsula of stone island. We were stuck at a beach location that serves a number of tour outfits pouring disgusting drinks for 3 hours. They made... More

First off: If you are on a cruise ship DO NOT BOOK THE CRUISE SHIP TOUR. You can actually walk to the water taxi from the cruise dock. If you are not it shape to walk a taxi will only cost you a couple of bucks. Tell the taxi driver you want to go to Isla De Las Piedras. The... More

We traveled with another couple who had visited this island 8 years ago, and they were very disappointed to see the many new hotels riddled along the beach. It was no longer a quaint hideaway -- now rows of hotels and a golf course. We rented 4-wheelers and went to the very end of the beach and saw tons of... More

How much do I like Stone Island? I've built a vacation home there. DON'T take an organized trip. just take a taxi or pulmonia to "el embarcadero por la Isla". take the cheap 10 minute boat ride to the Isla and wander around. mazatlan's best beaches….many palm topped restaurants, hammocks, horse rides, stuff for the kids to do, small store...

This place is special and different because there aren't lots of people and massive hotels all the way down the beach. There are many palm trees, several beach front restaurants and lots and lots of quiet areas for relaxing and swimming in the warm and gentle water. I recommend people come to Stone Island by taking the Sabalo-Centro or Playa... More

My wife, son and I recently cruised via the Crown Princess in early December. The tour guide, Jasmine, and the other members of the tour were very nice. We were prepared for a rustic adventure, not a rusty one. The tractors and the carriages were all rusty and in need of repair. The fish fillet, chicken and quesadilla were fine... More

we enjoyed tequila buzz and pacifico hydration with our feet resting on sand while shaded by umbrellas of Estebins restaurants. the ocean was 30 feet away with the view of two uninhabited jagged islands. stone island can be found via a 150 pesos taxi or pulmonia that can stop in front of the water taxi (30 pesos). water taxi leaves...
