Beach was main attraction

We went for a long walk on the beach. The restaurants aren't as good as the ones in town, but the beach is incredible and there are plenty of coconuts to satiate your thirst!

Peaceful ferry ride over, less people, plenty of food shops. Walked fr ferry to beach, to get a real feel of the village.

I've done lots of tours before, and this was by far my least favourite. The activities at the island were terrible. The horseback ride was about 15 minutes long. Felt like a pony ride at the fair. The kayak had a leak, and the waves made it too rough to paddle far. Most of the time we just sat at... More

This was an excursion from my cruise. We took a small boat through the mangroves around stone island. We saw 29 kinds of birds. Negative was the amount of trash in the water. So many plastic bottles. After the boat ride we went to a restaurant on the beach. The beach was beautiful and food adequate but nothing special. The... More

The trip was very nice, cost about half then booked by the cruise line. Our tour guide took care of us, organizing activities according to wish and ordering lunch for us. We chose banana boat ride and kayak, which was included in our price. We bought extra ATV ride 30 minutes, which was not so good. it is only along... More

Nice enough beach, not so easy to get to unless there is a tractor wagon waiting for you. Lots of beach vendors. Food was average and typical. To me it was nothing better than other beaches. Fine if you want to go, but not special.

Booked tour through Mazatlan Tours which was actually run by Playa Sur with Jorge as our tour leader. Definitely worth the price!! and Jorge was VERY knowledgeable and had a great tour of the harbor area including caves and sea lions... We got lunch, drinks, 2 activity tickets....just like offered by Cruise Ship at a MUCH LOWER price!! Would definitely... More

Nice day at the beach. I would say the best part of the tour was the boat ride over to Stone island. Mostly because Polo was our guide. Very entertaining, he also did a great job informing us what was happening, what we were going to eat and what activities were available. Not the most luxerious transportation or facilities, but...

Have been here about 3 times but each time we see it becoming less and less safe and welcoming. Drugs are destroying lives of people here and many turn to stealing to support their habits. It is very sad because otherwise this used to be a very nice area to visit especially since, away from the Gold Zone, it was... More

I was a bit apprehensive, booking this through Mazatlan Tours, due to it being sold out on our cruise ship. My fear of not finding the appropriate guide or making it back to the cruise ship on time were alleviated within 15 minutes of getting into the shop area. We found our guide, got in the back of the little... More
