“Great for a day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

If you are staying somewhere in Ixtapa, charter a small boat (cheap with a local) and spend several hours on the island. There is great, incredibly fresh sea food & good snorkeling.

“Well worth seeing as I went there four times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Snorkelling was great and beach was great. Water was really warm. Beer was priced at about $3 as you had to have ones because the restaurants have all the chairs.

“Ixtapa island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We took a tour from hotel, really nice snorkelling and great food. Was worthwhile to pay the little bit to have the snorkel guide. We snorkeled later on our own and then we knew where to go in the bay.
