We ventured over to check out the Garrafon Natural Reef park at the southern end of Isla Mujeres. We also chose to upgrade to VIP, and were we glad we did! With VIP comes zip line, and open bar and great food. We strolled to the very tip of the island to check out the Mayan ruins. What a view... More

They swim around in pools and then released. Area is nice and it is real cheap to go in. Cheaper if you use pesos.

Breakfast: crap and water...they will tell you it's a continental breakfast. I guess that depends on the continent. Lunch: They intentionally feed you trash in order to force you to upgrade to VIP! Same with the drinks. Boat schedule: They will tell you multiple times that you can leave at 3:30P. You can't! It's just a lie. You will be... More

Our family of 5 visited the park on a Sunday when the place is packed with locals. We purchased the VIP package and it is well worth it. We got the feeling the locals do not like foreign tourists there. They crowded the boat exit to get the best beach tables for spending the whole day there. They push aside... More

A few things to do here while at the park, the great thing is that is all inclusive as well. Zip lining is short and sweet and a few fish here and there while you snorkel.

We booked this excursion at the Garrafon for 64$ a person. It was so worth every penny. Zip lining, snorkeling, kayaking, and unlimited alcohol and food! One of the best things we did on Isla.

I'm sure lots of people love this park but I'm not one. Passable snorkelling but too many people in the water and reef is roped of to protect it from non-snorkelers. Not my cup of tea.

Overrated and once your there you are stuck until 5.30pm.... VIP not worth it for kids and not allowed in to nice area.... Ok I suppose if your kids can run around on there on and are over 140cm in height for the zip lines I would do Dolphins only but not Garrafon Todd
