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

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

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. Take some goggles.

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
