So we went here as part of the Dolphin package which I have reviewed separately and this review holds no reflection on the dolphin experience or our tour guide. We were led to believe that Garrafon was a cove type place... wrong! The views were absolutely stunning and the water crystal clear however you can't swim in it unless you... More

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon and it is Not a good place for honeymooners. It is tons of families with lots of children under the age of 12. Food and drinks were included which was great. The water was beautiful, very clear. Snorkeling however...a joke. You can't even snorkel over the wreath, you're limited to a... More

Garrafon Natural Reef Park was very nice! Good food that was included in the price; ziplining out over the water; play areas for children; infinity pools for relaxing; and snorkeling. The only downside was probably the snorkeling. The section of reef there is very small and it is roped off so that you cannot swim up to or over it.... More

The large entrance fee entitles you to the zip line (one time only even though there were hardly any people there) snorkeling, buffet and beverages. The last time I was in Isla I went snorkeling right next door at Castillo de Garrafon where the entrance fee was $5.00 and another $10-15.00 to rent a locker and snorkeling equipment. It was...

The water here is still just as clear as I remember it in years past...myriads of brightly colored fish swim serenely; virtually unaffected by the presence of their human visitors. On the beach iguanas lazily sun themselves as do the vacationing tourists. This is a perfect beach-day venue for family and friends. It caters to all ages and has facilities... More

Enjoyed a day snorkeling with the family. Beautiful underwater adventure. The barracuda that swam between us was even one of those trip memories we will never forget. We do recommend this one to you.

This was the best part of my trip. Snorkeling, zip lining, eating and relaxing. It was a piece of heaven in the middle of my vacation. The beach is a must see. I highly recommend it.
