Boat ride was OK. The beach here was nothing to write home about, water was cloudy and you definitely could not snorkel.

The trip was ok. There is not a whole lot to see in the waters around the island. When I was snorkeling I did not see much. The boat out was good and the time on the island was ok. One great thing was seeing Mazatlan from the island.

It was nice, boat ride was for about an hour. good music and drinks. relaxing getaway from the resort beach that was swarmed with vendors. They had a guy cut up fresh coconuts which was well worth it. snorkeling was fun, we later learned that the fish were more off to the side than we were snorkeling around.

We had a blast. The beach is beautiful ... swimming there is great as it is calm. Snorkeling was okay ... a bit murky and hard to see the fish. But fun overall ... the guys on the boat were exceptional ... we toured the shoreline first and he told us a bit of the history. We all enjoyed the day.
