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

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.

I had a great time walking up La Roqueta and looking at the beautiful views from the lighthouse at the top. Our guide was knowledgeable and affable and I learned a lot about the beautiful surroundings and some of the history of the city and the island. I would come back another time to wander, swim and enjoy the restaurants.

Glass bottom boat ride from caleta or caletilla for 50 pesos will take you to an island paradise, ride is about 10 minutes. Try to get one of the first boats of the day - leaving at 10:00 or 10:30 as the water is calmer and there are fewer people. The bigger tour boats from the zocalo come in around... More

Only a few minutes away from Caleta beach, you'll need to board one of the local small boats to get there, $60 pesos round trip, last boat departing the island by 6 PM. The beach is really clean, only a couple of restaurants there, food a little bit pricey. If you can, take a walk to the lighthouse.
