THe water was absolutely gorgeous!! SNorkeling was alright but you couldnt go into the reef so you didnt see that much really. We got the VIP package so we could zipline and come to find out you can only zipline the 3 lines one time..... ummm ridiculous. Staff was extremely rude from the snorkel checkout lady to the zipline men... More

This place makes the southern point of the island! You can do one of two packages the basic and the elite. The main difference with the elite is that you get free alcohol and you get to zip line. The other activities are a Mayan bath house experience, hammocks, an infinity pool, kayaking, snorkeling, a nature walk that includes the... More

Snorkeling, a zip line, beachfront, an infinity pool, drinks, on-site restaurants, grassy areas for relaxing... It's a great place to hang out for the day.

This park is the second part of the Virgin Ahoy tour, when you get there you can put you gear in a locker (need a deposit 50 pesos) and go exploring or get something to eat from the all inclusive buffet which was excellent. They provide towels for everyone so you can have a dip in the pool The staff... More

Walk the paths take pictures of the water looking a Cancun. Snorkel and kayak explore the surroundings. The 3 buck are worth it. I liked the little monsters animals.

Great bargain for a day of beach fun and snorkeling. I am learning to snorkel and this was a great place to practice. There are beach chairs available and snack food too.

On one of our trips to Mexico we took an excursion to Woman Island and went to Garrafon. There we went snorkeling and kayaking! The fish there were very pretty and so beautiful to see. Kayaking was fun however the space you had to stay within was smaller than usual. The Food wasn't the best but filled us up ,for... More

Garrafon is beautiful. You have many options for activities but you don't have to do anything but eat a great lunch and lounge in a hammock or pool. The sculpture garden at the top of the cliff (Punta Sur) was the best part. Gorgeous sculptures in an amazing setting. I do not believe in the swimming with the dolphins aspect,... More

We stumbled on this park while doing a golf park tour by going a wrong way. We saw the zip line and stopped to ask if you were able to enter and only do this one activity as we were leaving sometime the next morning. We were told we could so arrived when the park opened the next morning before... More
