Six dollars for admission is a real bargain. Everything you need is there, food, drink, restrooms and lockers. You can even choose between laying in the sun or under the canopy. Snorkel, lay in the sun, and feed the iguanas. Great service too!

Went down to grab lunch and let the kids snorkel. While my husband waited for the food (shrimp tacos quesadillas, ceviche), I took the kids to the beach to swim. I expected my husband to call us when the food was ready, but after swimming for an hour, our kids got hungry. When we got back to our table, the... More

Couldn't get out of there quickly enough. Visited the "beach club" and after paying the admission fee, walked down to the general area only to find out they could not pack any more people on their tiny beach. There was no chance we could settle anywhere with our two young children. We had not gotten out of the ticket area... More

The beach is small but nice, you can do good snorkelling here and restbunder their umbrellas. The only complaint I have is that you can't bring any food or drink on the beach, which means that you have to buy everything at their restaurant. I thought that was unreasonable as I just wanted to pay for the beach, and have... More

We only stayed on the beach and had drinks. It cost only about $5 to get in and it was well worth it. The beach chairs were comfortable enough and the pina coladas were yummy. They even have free outdoor showers. The beach had white sand, but was not particularly spacious and it was located near a dock. Three of... More

Our friends were already there and suggested by the hotel front desk where they were staying, we went to snorkeling to Garrafon De Castilla beach. You can take ferries from different ferry port locations in Cancun Hotel Zone, we took the ferry from Playa Tortugas, from our hotel... More

This is a great little spot next to the large Garrafon Park on Isla Mujeres. While I have visited both, my adventures at the Park always seemed to include too many crowds which made finding a chair difficult. Also, when you visit you are forced to pay for all-inclusive for the day and I prefer moving around trying different restaurants.... More

I did not stay at the hotel but came to snorkel and eat. The taxi is 78 Pesos one way from the Ferry Port area. You pay 50 Pesos admission fee to get in. The locker rental is 20 Pesos and I brought my own snorkeling gear but snorkel rental is probably 50 Pesos max. Very quiet and relaxing area... More

We didn't stay at the hotel; we did a day trip from Cancun & rented a golf cart ($45 for the day) on Isla Mujeres. This place is located right next to Garrafon park so the snorkeling is in the same area but it costs 50 pesos/pp for the day instead of $85 pp at Garrafon Park. There is an... More
