  • According to the majority that says that it is not a great attraction. It commented on the safety of the boats is very true... Already in the island is the ceremonial area but with some garbage. Before getting to this point of the island, is a very nice gentleman making drinks and that talk of all. On the island if they bring money surplus also can hire a guide explaining you more to detail what Huichols did in this ceremonial center (I do not hire him so I do not give more details, hehe) I wore to my daughters 11 and 5 years and if you entertained... Eye care because there is a slide very higher than for those who carry small children are neglected and one of your children gets to, the descent is very high and almost certainly end scrapings. This happened to my daughter of 5 years that inadvertently is raised and finished crying. And finally, to pay the 30 minute journey and if takes more time do not worry for failing to pay x more time. They come back in any boat with the same ticket.

  • The boat Ride is amazing
  • Lovely little island. Pretty much unspoilt. A great place to escape from the madding world even if for a few hours
  • The place has a beautiful view of the cost to get to the in boat round in the 200 or 300 pesos I remember (we were 7 persons) the food is delicious although missing him cleaning the place and a bit of maintenance, personally I patch it. Is a very pleasant as well experience the boat ride
