  • Please take care of the nature, it is beautiful but every time I come back I see more trash on the island. I hope all can save this nature beauty.  more »
  • Fantastic snorkeling with sea lions and fantastic beaches. The tours are very nice. The thing is that it is pretty far!

  • You can visit it on one of the tours offered on the Boardwalk. We take it with spirit Baja Tours! It is worth much.
