Great place to snorkel with a family. My daughter freaked out on the school of fish right next to her but she is pretty scared of fish. :) We would definately go back.
What a great little place, beach chairs and umbrellas included in the price of 50 pesos. Very private and not crowded. They have food to feed the fish so they are quite aggressive when you go in to swim even if you opted not to feed them-if that bothers you then it would be something to consider. The shore is... More
Not advanced snorkelling so it's great for everyone! No where NEAR as overpriced as the Garrafon next door - this is the RIGHT spot for a nice snorkel! Saw the biggest parrot fish I've ever seen here, sea cucumbers, sargeant majors, starfish, sand dollars......I could go on forever! You DON'T need to buy the fish food, the fish are all... More
We stopped here for a few hours of snorkeling with our boys ages 7 and 9. There is a 50 peso admission and then we rented flippers, life jackets for the children, face masks and towels. Great place for beginner snorkelers. The children were able to walk right off the beach into the water. Many different varieties of fish to... More
This is a good quick snorkel stop. We've been there twice, I believe that it costs 3 dollars to enter. The grounds appear to have been a trendy place in the 1960's, but that's part of the charm. You can buy fish food for a dollar, and get the closest thing to a piranha experience money can buy. :)
Interesting place if you like to learn about the history and culture of the local setting. You will be disappointed if you are not a history buff.
3.5 star especially for the price. I guess you can say I felt underwhelmed after reading the glowing reviews. Not at all bad but I expected something different I guess. You show up an its a run down old hotel with a lot of crumbling stone and debris spread around, but for the price of 50 pesos you can't beat... More
We have never eaten a meal here. However, the snorkeling is great. We always stop here during our island stays. The bar has a great view and is a wonderful place to relax after swimming. If you are staying downtown, you will need a bike, golf cart or taxi to get there. Admission 50 pesos ($5 US) per person.
Its located on the most beutifull place of the Mexican Caribbean Andes offer an spectacular view of Isla Mujeres bay and Cancun..........:.: lots moré
This is the 2nd time we have stopped at Garrafon de Castilla. First thing you have to know... how do I get there. If you pass the Gaffafon National Park, you went to far. Turn around and it is the first road on the west towards the beach down a dirt road. It is a little rough, but it provides... More
