Great place to zip line over the ocean. Many different activities to do there. Nicely priced. Beautiful area, even saw some of the BIG GET iguanas I've ever seen!

We decided to do a day trip to Garafon since our hotel has no beach, we would make this our "beach day" We splurged and got the VIP package which was $1240 peso's each, or about $80US. That got us a zip line run, free lockers, and basically the run of the place. You can use free snorkeling equipment, kayaks,... More

We are a young professional couple from NYC. we are pretty well travelled and have been many places. As we absolutely LOVE isla mujeres, this park was a total bait and switch scam rip off. We stopped there on a whim during our golf cart ride around the island. the beach looks beautiful from the toad and we just wanted... More

My mother and I visited the Garrfon park last April...and we were VERY disappointed. Instead of advertised beautiful coral and fish, we found only dead coral, very few fishes and no visibility... worst of all, we were obliged to put a life vest to snorkel where as we are both certified divers.......The spot is nice, but it really does not...

Very nice little natural attraction festooned with local art at the end of a beautiful island. Make sure you see the glorious "cliff of the dawn" and the very end of the land. This is the easternmost point in all of Mexico.

My friends and I were very excited to visit the park. We stayed at the other end of the island, so we took a taxi over to the park in the morning for the dolphins. Once we got there, they told us that the dolphins were not located directly at their park. This is fine, except no one told us... More

We arrived here as part of the Virgin Ahoy trip. The dolphin experience we had previously visited was good but a little rushed. The visit to Garrafon was just exactly what we needed. I must admit I expected a " chicken drumsticks on a BBQ and toilet in a hole" type of experience. We had about 3 hours here. The... More

We went zip lining and what a blast that was. I am afraid of heights, so this was really really fun!
