Excellent spot with crystal clear waters. If you have never been, take the small tour. It is short enough that you will enjoy without having to sacrifice time spent during it... read more

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

My husband and my two children and I went to this island it's a wonderful beach. We enjoyed a big part of the day here. The down side is that it was very crowded and had to pay for chairs to sit on by the beach. I recommend bringing beverages and snacks/food because it is very expensive to buy it... More

After paying the $400 to get the boat trip to the island, we spent over an hour going around the bay at 3mph while constantly being harassed to buy food, pictures, souvenirs and give tips to divers and swimmers. When we finally got to the island after what felt like an eternity, the captain declared that 'the island was full,... More

My wife and I came for a few hours yesterday and definitely recommend it. We took a 45 min tour boat that shows the bronze statue of St Mary but if you don't speak Spanish I don't think it's worth paying extra $35 pesos. Although if you want to see a young lad feeding fish off his mouth through the... More

Great way to see the bay of Saint Lucia .. By boat! So many lil beaches to choose from & snorkeling was amazing. Waters were calm & cool. Breath taking views from the sea.. Definitely worth spending the day out on the water!

First, Acapulco is awesome. Not very many Americans. Mostly well to do Mexicans from Mexico City. But English speakers are easy to find. The city once was frequented by many Americans. Hollywood moved in over the 60's though the 90's. But for some reason (probably Cabo) they stopped coming. Acapulco is beautiful. The water is 85 degrees and crystal clear.... More

My friends and I organized a little tour to this island. We stopped off to see the virgin beneath the water then went across to the Island. The beach was really nice (just a bit dirty and polluted). Only down part of the trip was that we didnt spend longer.

The island is very beautiful with transparent and warm water, even in the winter. You can see turtles and beautiful fishes. There are place to have lunch, drink margheritas and so on.

This is the #1 location for snorkeling according to locals. When we went, it was rather a cloudy day, but I still got sunburned on my back a little. Saw some beautiful fish and our snorkel/diving guide was fantastic.
