We took a glass bottom boat from the Boca Chica Hotel over to Isla La Roqueta. We climbed up to the lighthouse, and there we were able to enjoy the most amazing view of the city! It was worth the uphill walk!

It was on the Palao boat and the restaurant was also called Palao. No hotel pickup but that's fine. When we arrived at the pier, we were the only 2 people that were on time! The owner sat with us for a while and complained about the peso being so weak against the US $, but we were the only... More

We went out snorkeling. The water was perfect, lots of cool fish and pretty coral and the locals stay far enough back that you won't get run over. We'll go back to actually hike on, what appears, to be a very beautiful island.

We spent an afternoon very comfortable, I was surprised such a magnificent degree of cleanliness, both on the beach and in the sea, all staff there works very friendly and attentive. A family atmosphere. Widely recommended.

Me and my family went there. First we took a bus from the other side of the bus, it took us around 45 min, but the bus was air conditioner. We get to caleta and took a direct boat, 15 min long. We get to the island at 1300 and there was a bunch of people but we could find... More

This is a good place to snorkel. The water is clear and calm. A boat ride gets you there and back. You have the option of enjoying the beach or expliring the island. A nice place to spend the day.

Bought a ticket to be taken to the island by boat from Zoccalo. It took an hour to get to the island because the boat was constantly stopping while one of the boat staff would jump in the water and swim with the fish and then ask for tips. We were bobbing around about 20 metres from the island shore... More
