We paid $25 usd each for our trip to ixtapa island. We took this same tour last year and boy there are changes. You get picked up from your hotel taken to the boats = the people putting you on and off the boats are asking for propinas or tips usually a few coins, not too bad , but it is both ways. Then we get to the island and say we would like to snorkel = we had our own gear but had to pay a snorkeling guide another 130 pesos per person.to go in with him. We finished snorkeling and went back to the restaurant that had lunch for us (included in the cost) then the server requests a tip, we gave 50 pesos for us two - there was a family on our tour that only tipped 20 pesos and the server showed us how unhappy he was with that. Then we get back to the hotel and tip the tour lady that took us (100 pesos). I was quite disappointed that after paying for a tour that everybody had their hand out. It is good to know up front that this is expected because I was not going to bring extra cash but did in case my hubby wanted extra drinks - which he did - and we tipped on each order. Be aware.

Ixtapa Island is beautiful and a wonderful way to spend the day. We went with Tour guide Luis de la Maza, who was so wonderful. He is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. He arranged everything we needed. He also snorkelled with is showing us all of the amazing spots. Our whole family loved the experience

This was our third trip to Ixtapa and it was our best. We had a great day snorkeling on Ixtapa Island. My wife was a little hesitant and Luis took her out into the bay and taught her how ti snorkel. The food was great! We had a massage on the beach... couldn't ask for a better day!
Well... then we took a day trip the to Patzcuaro and Santa Clara! Luis has in depth knowledge of the history and culture of his country. From the barbacoa tacos to the hand hammered copper vase I bought, it was a day I'my wife and I wil never forget. If you go to Ixtapa, venture inland. The beaches are incredible but there is so much more to see a couple of hours away.
Luis mi amigo, gracias por mostrarnos tan bien. Nos vemos en nuestro próximo viaje. Keith

The tour was very overpriced for what it was considering it costs 50 pesos to take a boat taxi and another 50 pesos to rent snorkeling gear. It’s also not the best snorkeling in Mexico. I thought the tour would be going around the island by boat with some historical facts. But he was just a babysitter of our belongings.
